But the Cowboys put a drive together on their third try.
They went 80 yards in seven plays, getting help on a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty on Akiem Hicks. The Bucs defensive lineman landed with his full body weight on Prescott. That moved Dallas across midfield.
Prescott now is 3-of-6 for 40 yards, and Tony Pollard has five carries for 30 yards.
Cowboys backup tight end Peyton Hendershot is questionable to return with a thigh injury.
