Idiot guide to FX vs DX for long range subjects

I'm considering changing my D500 for the D850, but have never really understood the issues when it comes to longer range subjects. Hoping someone can put me straight. how would you compare the image quality of

70-200mm lens at 200mm on both bodies and then crop the FX to the same image size

70-200mm @ 200mm on D500 vs 70-200mm + TC14III on D850 (plus a bit of cropping to get same size)

You will have seen a related question about lenses as I'm looking at all the options moving from my old D500/80-400mm setup to D850/70-200mm. The latter will be a significantly smaller image for stuff taken at 400mm. Really clueless about what I would be giving up or gaining

Thnaks
