Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys takes place on an exciting day of Sunday NFL football. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Buccaneers are taking to the road to face off against their talented NFL East opponents. And they may come up against a side desperate to prove a point following last week's disappointing display against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Cowboys were expected to come away from the Seahawks game with a good win, but instead fell to s surprise defeat leaving them 1-1. They now return for their home opener to face off against the 1-1 Buccaneers who will have seen the Cowboys' defeat last week and will be thinking they have an opportunity to turn Dallas over on Sunday.
The Cowboys though cannot afford to lose again. They are in a very tight division and have an intense schedule to keep up with, and they will know they must avoid losing to perceived weaker teams at all costs if they are to make a run for the Super Bowl this season.
Dallas will be looking to stop Vincent Jackson as a priority. The job will likely fall to Josh Freeman, and most would predict that the Cowboys have the personnel to shut down Jackson and force others in the Buccaneers' lineup to produce something special to break them down.
Dallas will have to do the job without injured Jay Ratliff and Phil Costa, but their absence was not central in why they failed to beat the Seahawks so it shouldn't make a massive difference to them. However, with Barry Church also out, Lee and Bruce Carter in run defense and Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick in the secondary will have to step up and deal with the extra pressure.
Despite the problems engulfing the Cowboys in week 2 they know they have the talent to come through this game, and most will be predicting a comfortable win for Dallas.
