The weather is expected to remain mild and sunny in Tampa on Monday night. The temperature is expected to remain at around 64 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Weather Channel predicts that humidity will remain at around 56%-76% during the course of the match, and the chances of rain are almost nil. Winds are expected to remain at 3 miles per hour to 1 mile per hour.
According to media sources, Dallas Cowboys appear to be the favourites to win even though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be playing at home and have also won the NFC South. In the NFC East, the Cowboys came in second place.
Regarding the game, NFL legend Tom Brady, who came out of retirement to play for the Buccaneers, said, “Everything’s going to come down to what we do those three hours. Nothing in the past, nothing about the color jerseys we’re wearing. It’s who’s playing, what we’re doing, how we’re executing, how we’re executing under pressure. That’s what it’s going to come down to.”
The Associated Press reported that the seven-time Super Bowl champion was optimistic about his team’s performance. He said, “It’s going to be hard, but we’re battle tested,” further adding, “We’ve had some tough games. Some we came back from. Some we haven’t. But … close won’t be good enough going forward for anybody.”
Perhaps no team enters the playoffs under more of a microscope than Dallas (12-5), which lost Dak Prescott for five games after he broke his right thumb during a season-opening loss to Tampa Bay, but remained in contention for the best record in the NFC until last weekend.
