The world is going to see just how healthy Dak Prescott truly is when he and the Dallas Cowboys travel to Tampa Bay to face Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

We already know how good Brady and the Bucs are on offense, and we will see if Dallas can live up to the expectations it's set for itself. According to the odds, both quarterbacks are going to put on a show when the season kicks off on Thursday.

WynnBET is projecting both Brady and Prescott throw above their projected passing yards total. Brady’s player prop for yards is set at 306.5 passing yards, with the over (-130) favoring the under (-110). Prescott has the same odds, but his line is at 291.5 yards.

I’m fully on board with both quarterbacks getting love in Week 1. Brady is going to dissect the Cowboys’ defense all night long. The only thing I see getting in the way is the fact the Bucs might be up by so much at the end of the game that Brady just turns around and hands the ball off to his running backs. 

As for Prescott, he’s going to have to throw the ball. Dallas is going to be down in this game and Tampa Bay is great against the run -- nullifying Ezekiel Elliott. The strength of the Cowboys’ offense is the passing game. Before Prescott got injured, he was on pace to throw for nearly 6,000 yards. While his pace was going to be hard to maintain throughout the season, it shows just how lethal he can be. 

Expect the Buccaneers to handle their business with the Cowboys, but also expect for both quarterbacks to light it up.
