Nick Sirianni vs Todd Bowles
Philadelphia Eagles have started off their season strong, notching two impressive wins so far: over New England Patriots in their opener and Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football in a hard-fought 34-28 contest on Thursday Night Football. Philadelphia excelled offensively while holding Minnesota to only 374 yards total offense while holding on for one less turnover compared to Minnesota. Key to their victory: Philadelphia committed only one turnover while Minnesota committed four.
Jalen Hurts has led the Eagles with 363 yards passing for two touchdowns and an interception, while D’Andre Swift led rushers with 178 yards and one touchdown while DeVonta Smith excelled as their leading receiver with two touchdown receptions. On defense, Reed Blankenship led in tackles with 12 while also contributing four quarterback sacks and an interception to their cause.
The Eagles boast a formidable rushing attack, ranking second in the NFL with an average of 178 rushing yards per game, and boast an outstanding defense, allowing only 52 rushing yards per game (the best mark in the league). Given these strengths, Philadelphia will make for an intense and formidable opponent during this matchup.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have defied expectations by starting the season 2-0 without Tom Brady at their helm, surprising many observers along the way. On Sunday they defeated Chicago Bears 27-17 with 437 total yards of offense while holding them to only 236 total yards on defense.
Baker Mayfield has played brilliantly, passing for 490 yards with three touchdowns while leading his rushing attack with Rachhad White who has amassed 112 yards and one touchdown – while Mike Evans stands out with 237 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions. On defense, Devin White leads with 23 tackles while contributing four quarterback sacks and two interceptions for Tampa Bay’s defense unit.
NFL Latest Odds: PHI -6.5 ; O/U 44.5
Even without Brady at their backs, the Buccaneers have been impressive, with Mayfield’s play being an essential factor.
Though an UNDER prediction would appear to be wise given both teams’ excellent defensive abilities, my vote leans more toward Philadelphia Eagles here due to their top rushing defense, which allows only 52 yards per game compared to 30th place for Buccaneer’s pass defense. Furthermore, they have enjoyed more rest time since playing their previous matchup on Thursday providing ample preparation and recovery time before this one takes place.
