Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview & Picks

Dallas are backed to cover as they win this Super Wildcard Weekend clash.

The Cowboys have been guilty of sloppy play and Dak Prescott has been piling up interceptions.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers won 19-3 when the teams last met on September 11

Dallas Cowboys Form

Dallas compiled a 12-5 regular season record as they finished two games behind Philadelphia in the NFC East.

The Cowboys opened the season with a 19-3 defeat to Tampa Bay, but rebounded to win six of their next seven games to enter the bye week at 6-2.

They then suffered a surprise 31-28 overtime defeat at Green Bay in their return to action.

Their reaction was a strong one though, as a 40-3 blowout win at Minnesota sparked a four-game win streak.

Dallas went on to beat the New York Giants 28-20, Indianapolis 54-19 and Houston 27-23 at home.

The Cowboys’ streak was halted by a 40-34 overtime loss at Jacksonville, but they hit back quickly to down Philadelphia 40-34 and win 27-13 at Tennessee.

They were unable to win their regular season finale though, losing 26-6 at Washington last weekend.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Form

Tampa Bay finished the regular season with a losing record, but 8-9 proved to be enough to win the NFC South.

The Buccaneers won their opening two games of the season, but quickly cooled off to lose five of the next six.

Disappointing road defeats to Pittsburgh (20-18) and Carolina (21-3) were followed by a 27-22 home loss to Baltimore in October, leaving them at 3-5.

Tampa were able to stop the rot before the bye week though, beating the Los Angeles Rams 16-13 and Seattle 21-16 to get back to .500.

Their form quickly nose-dived though, as they lost three of their first four games after the bye.

The Bucs fell to a 23-17 overtime defeat in Cleveland, and they then failed to build on a 17-16 win against New Orleans as they were blown out 35-7 at San Francisco.

That was followed by a 34-23 loss to Cincinnati, although they did rebound to take the next two games, beating Arizona 19-16 in overtime and Carolina 30-24.

They lost their regular season finale at Atlanta, 30-17, but that was not enough to deny them a playoff berth.
