Tampa Bay vs Philadelphia Game Preview
Why Tampa Bay Will Win
The machine keeps on rolling.
The Buccaneer passing offense continues to be unstoppable with a huge day from Tom Brady and the attack in a 45-17 win over Miami. TB12 might have a banged up thing, but he had plenty of time work, threw for 411 yards and five scores, and the ground game got rolling, too.
Philadelphia will give up yards, but they’re mostly on the ground.
It was able to keep the Carolina offense in check in last week’s win, but it allowed over 100 rushing yards to Chuba Hubbard as the run D remains among the league’s worst.
The offense doesn’t have enough of a ground attack when Jalen Hurts is taking off, and now he and the Eagle backfield are going against the No. 1 run D in the NFL. However …
Why Philadelphia Will Win
Everyone abandons the run to try keeping up the pace – and to take advantage of the league’s worst pass defense.
Everyone’s getting fat on the Buccaneer secondary that’s banged up enough to be a problem.
Hurts isn’t necessarily going to be a 300-yard passer, but he’s the ultimate battler. The team last week could’ve been left for dead, but it hung around … hung around … hung around … and then came the breaks.
For the only time all year, Philly came up with multiple takeaways, and it needed them all. Tampa Bay has been air tight with the ball since giving it away four times against Dallas, but will the mistakes come on the road?
What’s Going To Happen
The Buccaneers didn’t turn the ball over against New England or the Rams, but they lost to LA and came a straighter kick away from losing to Belichick.
At home, everything hums. Away from Tampa …
Everything will be fine, but the jacked up Eagles will keep this close as this becomes a showcase for No. 1 on the home side … right up until No. 12 leads the way to a game-winning drive.
