Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s bold message to Tom Brady after Buccaneers’ Week 1 win
After the hard-fought contest that saw the Bucs escape with a narrow 31-29 win, Prescott went to Brady to congratulate his fellow quarterback for one hell of a showing. After exchanging pleasantries, though, the Cowboys QB said they will see Tampa Bay squad once again.

Did Dak Prescott just promise a playoff berth for the Cowboys and another round with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers? It sure seems like it.
To recall, Dallas missed the playoffs in 2020 after a horrible 6-10 record that saw them finish third in the NFC East. Of course a huge reason for that was Prescott’s severe ankle injury that ended his campaign after just five games, though there aren’t really a lot of positives to be taken from the previous season.
Prescott has a reason to be optimistic about the Cowboys’ playoff chances, though. Despite the loss, he put on a great performance that almost gave them the W. Sure, “almost” is not enough but his three 403 yards and touchdowns on 42-of-558 pass completion rate got to raise the hopes up of the Dallas faithful.
It remains to be seen if Prescott can walk the talk, but it’s certainly a storyline worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses. Besides, who doesn’t want another Dak-Tom showdown after that epic opener?
