The NFL’s 2021 regular-season opener should be great.
The 2021 NFL regular season begins with the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the current Super Bowl champion.
The Buccaneers just finished a championship season under the Tom Brady era. In free agency, Brady signed a two year deal with the Bucs. He won Super Bowl No. 7 in a short time. 7. With his new team.
In 2020, the Cowboys were disappointed. Dallas lost star quarterback Dak Prescott to a season-ending injury. The NFC East team finished the season at 6-10.
Both the Bucs as well as the Cowboys have high hopes for 2021. It will be a memorable first game of the NFL’s regular-season kickoff.
Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, was brutally honest about the matchup.
“We’re going to have a lot of prayer, so we could get the courage to show up,” Jones said, via NFL.com. Let me tell you: World-champion Tom Brady, Tampa. Great atmosphere. What a better chance to be David against Goliath.
David vs. Goliath may seem a bit far-fetched, since the Buccaneers are less than a touchdown ahead.
Jones’ team would still be very proud if they pull off an upset.
The Cowboys and the Buccaneers will begin at 8:20 p.m. Eastern Time. Thursday, September 9.
