Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers prediction
The Philadelphia Eagles are five-point favorites on the road, while the over/under is set at 45 in the first of two Monday Night Football games.
Tampa Bay’s defense has been solid this season, as the Buccaneers have forced three interceptions through two games.
Heading into the matchup, Bowles spoke to the media and said he knows stopping the QB sneak is key for Tampa Bay’s success.
“We’ve got to stop it. The play is legal – we’ve got to stop it as a defense. They do a good job of executing it as an offense.”
Philadelphia has let teams come back into the game in the second half, which has been a concern early on. The Eagles’ defense has struggled at times, but having 10-day gap for practice will be key for Philadelphia here.
The Eagles’ high-powered offense will be too much for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Philadelphia should get out to an early lead and hold onto it for the win.
Prediction: Eagles 27, Buccaneers 21
