Dallas and Tampa Bay opened the 2021 season with a back-and-forth Thursday thriller. In 2022, Dak Prescott and Tom Brady will square off on “Sunday Night Football” as they look to open their season with a win.
The Buccaneers prevailed 31-29 in last year’s meeting. Brady threw for 379 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions. Prescott went toe-to-toe with him, posting 403 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
This year’s coaches — Dallas’ Mike McCarthy and Tampa Bay’s Todd Bowles — are hoping their defenses play better. Each unit struggled to start 2021 before ironing out the kinks.
Bowles took over for Bruce Arians in the offseason after the Super Bowl-winning coach retired. Bowles posted a 24-40 record in four seasons as the Jets’ head coach.
