Three weeks from tonight, the 2021 NFL season begins with the Buccaneers hosting the Cowboys. Quarterback Dak Prescott plans to be under center for the visiting team.

Hall of Fame scout Gil Brandt, who spent 30 years with the Cowboys, tweeted that Prescott said Wednesday he expects to be playing when the season begins. Brandt acknowledges that it will take a lot to keep Prescott from playing, but that he may not be 100 percent.
