Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers live updates, Super Wild Card Weekend at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL
Brady, 45, had a terrible season, by his standards, and still managed to reach the postseason with an 8-9 record. The NFC South was so bad that the losing record was enough to earn home field advantage against the 12-5 Cowboys.
Prescott, 29, missed a handful of games this year and still led the league in interceptions. While many of his picks seemed to come off missed catches from Dallas wide receivers, Prescott must still take responsibility and clean up his offense.
The Cowboys defense, led by linebacker Micah Parsons, will do its job against Brady, but it’s up to Prescott to put up points.
Last time these two teams met was in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season, a 19-3 victory for Tampa Bay. Prescott left the game with injury and Cooper Rush took over at the position.
Prescott will have a few weapons at his disposal, but the most important one will be WR CeeDee Lamb, who has shown glimpses of greatness this season.
Lamb, 23, finished the regular season with 1,359 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard have become a great rushing tandem that need to get started early to open the passing game for Prescott.
Brady, meanwhile, lacks a consistent running game, so it’s difficult to keep the defense off his back. His only hope will be to connect with wide receiver Mike Evans, who finished with 1,124 receiving yards.
