The 2021 NFL regular season will kick off tonight in Tampa. The defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers will fire the cannons and raise their second Super Bowl banner in franchise history as they host the Cowboys. It will be 44-year-old Tom Brady leading the Bucs against the returning Dak Prescott and Dallas.
Zack Martin is missing the Cowboys season opener after he positive for COVID-19 on Saturday. Martin will be inactive for the game after speculation he could be possibly be cleared in time to play. Martin is fully vaccinated, but cannot return to play until five days with no symptoms and two negative tests separated by 24 hours. The six-time pro bowler has been a staple on the Cowboys offensive line since he was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
