How is the Dallas Cowboys team run

NFL Schedule 2021 Released - Tampa Bay Buccaneers open the season against the Dallas Cowboys

The NFL schedule for the 2021 season is ready! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers open the season as defending champions with a home game as usual, three weeks later there is a big reunion: Then Tom Brady travels to New England with his Bucs. London can also be found on the NFL schedule again in 2021.

Defending champion Tampa Bay will kick off the night of September 9-10 against the Dallas Cowboys. While Tampa Bay is competing with an almost unchanged squad compared to the Super Bowl team - rookies excluded, of course - the appearance of the cowboys should be expected with more excitement.

Dallas had to complete most of the preseason without quarterback Dak Prescott due to injury, and both starting tackles were largely absent. The defense stabilized somewhat over the course of the season, but here, too, there is a central innovation with the new defensive coordinator and ex-Falcons coach Dan Quinn. A baptism of fire awaits with Tom Brady, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Co.

For number 1 pick Trevor Lawrence, meanwhile, the NFL career begins within the division: It goes to the Texans in Houston. Number 2 pick Zach Wilson and his New York Jets travel to the Panthers in Carolina, where Sam Darnold meets his ex-team directly. In contrast to previous seasons, there is only one game on Monday evening in week 1: The Las Vegas Raiders receive the Baltimore Ravens, then for the first time the game will be played in front of spectators in the new stadium in Las Vegas.

The Sunday Night Game has a similar storyline to offer: The Los Angeles Rams "open" their stadium against the Chicago Bears - possibly with rookie quarterback Justin Fields as a starter.

The eagerly awaited reunion between Brady and his former team, the New England Patriots, increases in the Sunday Night Game of Week 4. Then Brady and the Bucs travel to Foxboro.
