Buccaneers 41, Cowboys 27

“The Cowboys' defense is trying out a new defensive tackle duo, a new starting linebacker group, a new scheme. The Bucs are not the Week 1 opponent against whom you want to be trying anything new. Tom Brady spent the first three months of last season working out the kinks in Bruce Arians' offense so he could soar into the playoffs and now glides into a new season with unprecedented continuity and depth. Brady could probably drop 30 on this Dallas defense even if he was only allowed to use the Bucs' backup skill position players.”...
