The Dallas Cowboys opened their 2021 season with arguably the toughest test the NFL has to offer: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Tom Brady and company celebrated their Super Bowl victory in front of a packed house on Thursday night. After raising the banner, the Buccaneers got off to a hot start against Dallas.
Through just over three quarters of play, Brady has already thrown four touchdown passes as the Buccaneers offense is firing on all cylinders. It’s taken an incredible effort from Dak Prescott to keep the Cowboys in the game.
However, on one of the Cowboys’ latest possessions, Dallas couldn’t help but go three-and-out. Immediately after the punt, cameras panned to the box where Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was sitting.
It was clear he wasn’t very happy with what was transpiring on the field.

In his first game back from a season-ending injury, Prescott has thrown 50 passes. Coming off of a shoulder injury, that might not be the smartest game plan for the Cowboys.
However, they need to keep up with the high-powered Buccaneers offense. Brady himself has thrown for over 300 yards and four touchdowns as the Buccaneers hold a 28-26 lead.
Jerry Jones has made it clear in the past that his team always has Super Bowl aspirations. A loss tonight would not be a good start.
