Gameday Tampa Bay

Cowboys at Bucs
Week 1
Kickoff: 1 p.m.
TV: WTVT Ch. 13, DirecTV 712
Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (in Tampa WFUS-FM, 103.5 and WDAE-AM, 620); Sirius Channel 158.
Weather: Per, thunderstorms expected at kickoff and near the end of the game sandwiched around partly sunny skies. Highs in the upper-80s.
Odds: Per, Dallass -3.
Outlook: The Raheem the Dream Era beings. What it will bring, aside from Josh Freeman starting at quarterback at some point, is anyone’s guess. Raheem the Dream loves to throw the word “violent” out a lot, much to the chagrin of Bucs media liaison Jeff Kamis. … Right now if the Bucs are to beat the Cowboys, they will have to dominate the line of scrimmage, specifically on offense. No one believes Byron Leftwich and the Bucs passing attack will be stellar. For it to be successful the Bucs will have to pound the ball. If they are ineffective running the ball, it plays right into Dallass’ hands. … Dallass has just as deep of a running back stable as the Bucs. The Cowboys will try to do the same thing as the Bucs, only, they have a passing attack.
Fun facts: The Cowboys have the NFL’s best record in season-opening games. … When Cadillac Williams has at least 22 carries, the Bucs are undefeated. … While the Bucs haven’t won a playoff game since they won the Super Bowl, Dallass hasn’t won a playoff game since 1998. … Jessica Simpson is getting fat.
