2023 NFL Wild Card Weekend live stream: where to watch Monday’s NFL playoff game

After two days of competition, only one game remains this Wild Card Weekend. They saved the best for last as the No. 5 Dallas Cowboys face off against the No. 4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The winner clinches the final spot in the Divisional Round next weekend.

All of the pressure is on the Cowboys, who only have three playoff wins since 1997. The Cowboys have not made the NFC Championship since 1995, which happened to be the last year they won the Super Bowl. For the Cowboys to win, they need to beat Tom Brady, the greatest postseason quarterback of all time, who happens to be 7-0 against the Cowboys.
