Jerry Jones is the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, and in a recent interview with The Dallas Morning News, he discussed the team’s future. Jones said that the Cowboys will be in a better position to compete in a playoff game by the time they reach the 2021-2022 season. “We’ll have a lot of prayer before we play a top NFC contender,” Jones said. “We have no intentions of going to a game and having a prayer.”
In a speech at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., the Cowboys owner said his team would play a “top-tier” NFC contender in 2021, and did not rule out the possibility of his team playing in the Super Bowl, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Jones did not specify which opponent the Cowboys would be facing, but he said he wants to see his team “have a lot of prayer.”
Jerry Jones is known for saying he will do anything and everything to win a Super Bowl, and he’s always been right. Last year, he said the Cowboys would be “almost unbeatable” if they landed their first truly elite free agent: quarterback Kirk Cousins. Well, they signed him, and he promptly led them to a 12-4 record. It was a successful season. There’s no question that the Cowboys can be great. But, will they be good enough to get to the Super Bowl in 2021?
It’s that time of year again, when Dallas Cowboys supporters believe their team has a shot to win the Super Bowl despite the fact that they aren’t even a candidate. The Cowboys have high hopes this season after improving their defense and bringing Dak Prescott back from injury. However, they aren’t yet one of the top teams in the NFC, and owner Jerry Jones seems to recognize this.
In fact, Jones previously quipped that his squad would “have a lot of prayer” before facing Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the next season.
In Week 1, the Dallas Cowboys face Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jerry Jones’ Cowboys have a difficult start to their 2021 season, as they play the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL’s season opener.
In 2020, the Cowboys had a difficult season. Their defense was terrible, allowing 29.6 points per game, and their offense wasn’t terrific either, despite a strong start. Dallas finished the season with a 6-10 record and missed the playoffs after Dak Prescott suffered a season-ending injury in Week 5.
Last season, the Buccaneers had Tom Brady as their quarterback, and he guided them to an 11-5 record and a spectacular playoff run. After defeating Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the wild-card round, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, and Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, the Buccaneers defeated Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, and Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Tampa Bay now has all 22 of its Super Bowl-winning starters back, including Leonard Fournette and Antonio Brown, posing a tough test for Jones’ Cowboys in Week 1.
The Cowboys will ‘have a lot of prayer,’ according to Jerry Jones.

The Cowboys face the Buccaneers in their season-opening game on Sept. 9, and Jones seems to understand how big of an underdog his club is going into it.
According to NFL.com, Jones stated on Back Together Saturday, “We’re going to have a lot of prayer so we can have the guts to show up.” “Let me tell you something: world champion Tom Brady, Tampa, tremendous atmosphere — what a greater chance to be David against Goliath than this.”
Although the Cowboys aren’t exactly David since they aren’t the poorest club in the league, Jones makes a valid argument. No one expects his team to win in Week 1, so they can go into the game with the goal of pulling off an upset.
Is it, nevertheless, possible?
Is it possible for the Cowboys to defeat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers?
As previously stated, Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl-winning squad returns all of its key players. Giovani Bernard, a running back who will assist Tom Brady in the passing game, was also signed by the Buccaneers. As a result, stopping them will be tough.
While Prescott’s return will help the Cowboys’ offense, Tampa Bay’s defense was a top-10 team in the NFL last season, holding the Chiefs to nine points in the Super Bowl. Week 1 might be a challenge for Prescott.
The Cowboys, on the other hand, will get the opportunity to test their new-and-improved defense against a top-ranked offense. Dallas signed Dan Quinn as their new defensive coordinator this summer and acquired linebacker Micah Parsons as well as defensive backs Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, and Malik Hooker. So, although those guys will undoubtedly give Dallas a shot to win in Week 1, it’s difficult to envision them completely stopping Brady and the Bucs.
Jerry Jones’ team should be better this season, but the Buccaneers remain the best of the best. The Cowboys don’t have a tremendous chance, but neither did David when he confronted Goliath.
