How to watch Eagles vs. Bucs on Super Wild Card Weekend


So they meet again.

Tom Brady and the Philadelphia Eagles are no strangers when it comes to postseason football. Brady led the New England Patriots past the Eagles in Super Bowl 39 for his third title. But the Eagles got revenge 13 years later, taking down Brady and the Pats for the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl championship.

Now, the Eagles and Brady will square off in a non-Super Bowl postseason game for the first time when Philadelphia visits Tampa Bay on NFL Super Wild Card Weekend.

The No. 7-seeded Eagles and No. 2-seeded Buccaneers met earlier this season, with Tampa Bay leaving the Linc with a 28-22 victory in Week 6.


The Bucs will see a much different Eagles team this time around though. In that regular season matchup, Miles Sanders was the only Eagles running back to record at least one carry, rushing the ball just once in the first half and nine times overall. Since then, the Eagles have transformed into an elite rushing attack, finishing the season with a league-high 159.7 rushing yards per game average.

On the other side of the ball, the Eagles won’t have to face what was once a star-studded group of receiving weapons. Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin, who combined for 14 catches, 136 yards and one touchdown in Week 6, are no longer in the picture, with Brown being released and Godwin out due to a torn ACL. But Tampa Bay still has quite the 1-2 punch in Mike Evans and Rob Grownkowski, the latter of whom has posted two straight 100-plus-yard games.

So will the Eagles continue their dominance on the ground against the Bucs, who allowed 16th-most rushing yards per game over the final 12 weeks of the season, and stun the defending Super Bowl champs on their home field? Or will Brady and the Bucs’ offensive firepower simply be too much for Philly to overcome?
