The dallas cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will close the Wild Card round this Monday when both teams clash at Raymond James Stadium, in the last ‘Monday Night Football’ of the season.
Although Mike McCarthy’s men start as favorites by three points to take the victory against those of Tom Bradyone of the legends of the ‘Lone Star’ does not have full confidence in quarterback Dak Prescott.
Prescott is the quarterback with the second most interceptions on the season (15 interceptions), behind only Josh Allen, who passed him on Sunday after he suffered two interceptions in the Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins.

Troy Aikmanwho is also the star narrator of the American chain ‘ESPN’, showed his concern for the level shown in the last duels by the quarterback graduated from Mississippi State University.
“I see a quarterback who hasn’t been playing with a lot of confidence. and I think that would be a little worrying going into this game,” said Dak Prescott’s Aikman. “Can you get that back?”
Aikman added that “it worries me a bit, especially considering the amount of pressure I think this team has to win a playoff game.”
There is hope
Dallas hasn’t won a playoff road game since 1993, when they beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. However, Aikman sees this as a great opportunity for the team to show that it’s just statistics.
Aikman assured that Brady is no longer the same as before and for this reason he believes that Dallas should be aggressive from the start of the duel and try to put the veteran in a ‘shootout’, where the legend believes that Dallas has a better chance.
“If it’s a close game in the fourth, that doesn’t bode well for Dallas.”Aikman confessed. “I think Dallas has the power. The last thing Tampa can afford [es] get into a shootout and I think Dallas has the ability, if they play the way they’re capable of playing, they have the ability to really put pressure on Tampa early in the game.”
