Let’s get started!

Offense

Both of these offenses are incredibly talented overall. Starting off with the Cowboys side, they have all the weapons in the world to be a top unit in the league.

Dak Prescott is returning from his gruesome ankle injury that he suffered just a couple of games into the 2020 season so nobody is quite sure how comfortable he will be to get back out on the field.

He will have a ton of assistance in both the pass game and the run game to ease him back into action.

The Cowboys boast a three headed monster at the wide receiver position with Amari Cooper, Ceedee Lamb and Michael Gallup, three guys that will all benefit from having their Pro Bowl quarterback again.

Dallas also has a somewhat sturdy offensive line for Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard to run through.

This offense is actually generating so much hype that a good number of fans believe that Dallas could make a run for the NFC title by the end of the year.

However, the Buccaneers offense has some things to say about that notion.

First, they have the seven-time Super Bowl Champion, Tom Brady, leading the charge.

Whatever team Brady ends up being on is eventually a very successful offensive unit.

They also loaded him up with the same 22 starters from their championship run in 2020.

This means that Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown are all back into the mix for the veteran signal caller.

Tampa Bay made a pretty big effort to retain their backfield as well, holding onto Leonard Fournette and once again pairing him up with Ronald Jones.

Their offensive line was also ten times better than many people expected heading into last season and should be another solid unit in 2021.

Looking at both offenses, you know this game is going to be high scoring. Ultimately, I just feel like the Buccaneers have a far more proven offense than the Cowboys and should be better here.

Defense

Well, this category isn’t very close to be honest.

The Buccaneers defense was absolutely phenomenal last season despite everybody doubting them at the beginning of the season.

Their linebacker duo of Devin White and Lavonte David was fantastic all year long.

Both players were exceptional tacklers and played great pass coverage, something you don’t get often out of your linebackers.

Tampa Bay’s pass rush wasn’t great in 2020 but they still have a couple of pass rushers who are bound to take a leap this year, including Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre Paul.

As for their run defense, well they were ranked number one in the league for most of the season and were without Vita Vea for an extender period of time.

The secondary was the weakest part of this unit, but they eventually pulled it together towards the end of the year.

The postseason was where they really shined and helped them get past a few treacherous offenses such as the New Orleans Saints, the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Flipping over to the Cowboys defense, they just weren’t even close to the unit that the Buccaneers ended up having.

Dallas was ranked dead last in a couple of defensive categories throughout the first half of the season before stringing together a few average performances towards the end of the year.

They still remained in the bottom ten defenses in the league, and they truly didn’t do that much to improve their overall defense during the offseason.

Yes, they made some good pickups, but they just don’t look ready to turn the page right now.

Their pass rush outside of Demarcus Lawrence seemed nonexistent and that carried over into their abysmal run defense.

They have some solid linebackers with Leighton Vander Esch and now their newly drafted Micah Parsons but that seems to be the only bright spot.

They have a very young secondary that didn’t live up to expectations but a full offseason to prepare and get better may be good for them.

We could see them take a small step forward, but it isn’t going to help that they have to face off against Brady and Tampa Bay on opening day.

Dallas Cowboys vs Tampa Bay Prediction

I am a big fan of Prescott and the Cowboys offense as a whole but let’s face it, they aren’t going to be able to keep up with the Buccaneers in this game.

As I mentioned earlier, all signs point to this matchup being a high scoring affair between two high powered offense.

If that ends up being the case here, the Buccaneers should run away with this win. They have a far better defense, and some would argue that their offense is better as well both on the ground and through the air.

Dallas is very unproven defensively and is likely not going to be the unit that steps up and wins the game for them unlike the Buccaneers defense did a couple of times throughout the postseason last year.

I still believe that Dallas is going to be a great team this season but going up against the reigning champions in front of their home crowd just spells out disaster.

Especially when your best offensive player is just now making his return from a terrible leg injury that kept him out over 13 games just a year ago.

If Dallas comes out of the gates slow this game could get ugly quickly, the only chance they truly have here is to keep up with Tampa Bay offensively and hope that their defense can make the first stop to get them some breathing room.
