The Cowboys have their starting quarterback Dak Prescott back on the field after a devastating injury in 2020. How healthy he will be as he recovers from the knee injury remains to be seen, but he will be among the top storylines heading into the NFL season opener on Thursday night. Dallas will enter this season as the favorites to win the NFC East in 2021.

The Buccaneers return a ton of their Super Bowl-winning roster from last season, and Tom Brady has a team that can compete for another championship. Only the Kansas City Chiefs have better odds than Tampa Bay heading into 2021 according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The Buccaneers have very few holes on their roster, and we’ll see how fired up they are to begin what is expected to be another deep run into the playoffs.
