The Tampa Bay Buccaneers battle the Dallas Cowboys in the final wildcard game of the 2022-23 NFL playoffs. Here’s how the game will go for the Buccaneers.
It’s pretty safe to say that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys matchup is the most anticipated game of Super Wildcard Weekend. It’s easy to see why, considering Tom Brady is involved and the Cowboys are the Cowboys. There’s a reason the game is on Monday Night as the finale after all. The NFL playoffs are always big, but this game almost feels bigger, despite the roller coaster ride both teams have been on.
If the anticipation is too much for you, fear not because we’ve got you covered. Here is your official spoiler alert for the wildcard game between the Bucs and the Boys. Read on if you dare, for you have been warned.
While Brady and the defense of the Cowboys will get most of the attention, it’s actually the other matchup that should end up being the most significant. Simply put, the defense of the Buccaneers has to step up, and show out against Dak Prescott and the Cowboys. Fortunately, they will be able to do so but forcing Dak to make his usual mistakes and turn the ball over.
This will also take pressure off of the offense of the Buccaneers, allowing Brady to slice and dice the defense, as he’s prone to do in the playoffs. The Bucs run game will also benefit from this, and the offense will start to have new life. The defense of the Cowboys has been in freefall, and it will reach its crescendo here. The return of Ryan Jensen helps too or course.
In the end, the Buccaneers will defeat the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 24-13, and a date with the San Francisco 49ers will be on deck for Bay Area kid Tom Brady and the rest of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
