Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys – Week 15 Picks And Predictions


This duel was scheduled to start at 4:25 pm ET this Sunday, but since the Buccaneers are on a five-game winning streak and in the Playoff picture, NFL decided to move this match into the Sunday Night Football slot. They believe that this game is going to attract more fans than Broncos vs. Patriots, and we don’t blame them. Cowboys are always the hottest topic in the NFL.

That is for sure the case after they lost their first game in twelve weeks this past Sunday against the Giants. And yes, their quarterback, a guy that media talked about all season long had a pretty bad performance in that defeat.

Buccaneers are poised to make the Playoffs as they had some big-time wins in the past couple of weeks. Tampa is playing an all-around football as they are decent on both sides of the ball. Winston has been good this year as he has improved, but he still needs to try and find other receivers not named Mike Evans. Bucs’ wideout is a stud, there is no question about that, but better defenses could exploit that.

Bucs win their games on the defensive side of the ball as they were able to slow down a lot of squads in consecutive games. They’ll need to do the same against this Cowboys’ offense that will try to run the ball.


The key for Dallas will be their passing attack. It needs to rebound from that bad performance in New York. Prescott was just 17/37 throwing the ball. That needs to improve, or the Bucs will come away with a huge road win.

We don’t think that will happen. Dallas’ offense will respond and put up enough points on the board to secure victory in this duel. It’s going to be a great contest on Sunday in Dallas, with the Cowboys just squeezing past the Bucs in a 21:18 win.
