What to watch
Can Dak get it done?
The Cowboys have a bad history in the playoffs lately. Every year it seems as though they have a team that is capable of winning it all, yet they always get an early exit in the playoffs. Dak Prescott will have solid offensive weapons around him like the running duo of Zeke Elliot and Tony Pollard, but they will face one of the best-run defenses in the NFL.
Trouble for Tommy?
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are not as dominant as they have been in the past. They have trouble running the ball and all of the pressure is on Brady to put points up through the air. Brady leads the league with 490 completions and he has a perfect 7-0 record against the Cowboys in his career. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin will be a difficult matchup for a Cowboys defense that has faltered of late.
Buccaneers vs Cowboys predictions and picks
Both teams are getting healthy at the right time so expect all hands on deck for this prime-time affair. The Cowboys have not won a road wildcard playoff game since 1991, but that will change on Monday night. Dallas is 10-1 against the spread (ATS) after a loss and they 20-8 ATS in the last 28 games against the NFC.
The Cowboys can run the ball and the Bucs cannot. That will be the difference in this game. Dak will open up running lanes by throwing early and building a lead. That will allow the Dallas defense to come after Brady since he will be forced to throw. The Bucs have just covered 3 of the last 16 games overall and they will get knocked out of the playoffs by Dallas.
