On the other hand, Tampa Bay was 11-5 last season and, of course, capped off the postseason with a 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Cowboys were second worst when it came to rushing yards allowed per game last year, with the squad giving up 158.8 on average. The Buccaneers’ defense has more to brag about, as they they were the best in rushing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2020 season giving up only ten.
