What TV channel is Monday Night Football tonight? Live stream, time, how to watch Cowboys-Bucs online – AL.com

Dallas travels to Tampa Bay to close out Super Wild Card Weekend, and we have our favorite Cowboys vs. Buccaneers prop bets for the Monday night clash.
The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott face off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady on Monday, Jan. 16. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV (live stream).
Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers down a winding path to the playoffs. Dak Prescott helped the Dallas Cowboys weather significant challenges on their way to the postseason.
The star quarterbacks meet Monday night in an NFC wild-card game, and they are hoping the regular-season adversity will pave the way to a Super Bowl run.
Perhaps no team enters the playoffs under more of a microscope than Dallas (12-5), which lost 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.
A listless double-digit loss to Washington in the regular-season finale raised questions about how Prescott and the Cowboys will react to beginning the postseason on the road against the Bucs.
Dallas hasn’t won a postseason game on the road since the 1992 playoffs. And the Cowboys have never beaten Brady, who is 7-0 against them, including wins with Tampa Bay in the past two season openers.
No one has accomplished more in the playoffs than Brady, who is looking to add to numerous postseason records, including most games played (47), wins (35), Super Bowl titles (seven) and appearances (10), passing yards (13,049) and touchdowns passes (86).
Dallas and Tampa Bay play at 7:15 p.m. (8:15 p.m. ET) Monday, Jan. 16.
The game will be live streamed on fuboTV, which offers a free trial. The most basic of plans is the “fubo standard” package, which comprises 121-plus channels for $69.99 per month. Like all cord-cutting alternatives, there are plenty of options, especially for sports. It comes with more than 1,000 hours of cloud-based DVR, and up to 10 screens at once.
Tampa Bay and Dallas will be televised on ESPN. The Manningcast will broadcast on ESPN2.
HISTORY LESSON: Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn told some of his players the Cowboys haven’t won a road game in the playoffs since the 1992 season, when a 30-20 victory over San Francisco in the NFC championship game sparked a run of three Super Bowl titles in four years.
The losing streak is at eight games, with the most recent defeat coming to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round to finish the 2018 season. The Cowboys are opening on the road in the playoffs for the first time since the 2006 season, when Tony Romo flubbed the snap on a potential winning field goal in the final two minutes of a 21-20 loss at Seattle.
“We’re just going to go out there and try to rewrite that,” said safety Jayron Kearse, who volunteered that Quinn had brought it up. “It’s just part of having the star on your helmet. The things that people talk about. It hasn’t been since ‘92. Ninety-two to 2023, that means nothing.”
There is a positive side to history for the Cowboys. They are 2-0 against Tampa Bay in the playoffs, although both victories were at home in early 1980s.
SHIFTING BACK: Two players had to move on the already unsettled Dallas offensive line when center Tyler Biadasz injured an ankle two weeks ago. Now that he appears set to return, those players are likely moving back, too.
Rookie Tyler Smith figures to return to left tackle, where he has been most of the season after eight-time Pro Bowler Tyron Smith tore a hamstring in training camp. Tyler Smith slid over to left guard after Biadasz’s injury because Connor McGovern had to move to center.
Right tackle Terence Steele’s season-ending knee injury came the week before Tyron Smith was ready for his first game of the season. Rather than move Tyler Smith, the Cowboys decided to put Tyron Smith at right tackle for the first time since his rookie year in 2011.
The most recent shuffling affected the running game more than all the uncertainty before it. The Cowboys were held to fewer than 100 yards on the ground in consecutive games for the first time this season in the final two games of the regular season.
WHAT’S NEXT? Brady, who retired last winter only to announce 40 days later he was returning for a third year with the Bucs, will be a free agent at the end of season. He continues to shrug off questions about his plans beyond these playoffs.
“I haven’t thought about any of that,” he said. “I just want to be the best I can for my teammates every day and show up like a professional, come out and play good.”
