Buccaneers vs Eagles Picks
It’s hard to go past anything other than a Tampa Bay win. Fresh off a dominating win in which the offense did as it pleased, Brady and the Bucs should be able to put up points against the Eagles defense.
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles got a much-needed confidence boost after their win over the Panthers last week, but the Buccaneers are a different beast.
The Buccanners defense has shown it has trouble stopping the pass so that might be an an avenue Hurts could do down, however this is a match the Buccanners can and should be winning.

Buccaneers vs Eagles Prediction
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will be looking to improve their record to 5-1 with a win over the Eagles. It should be a game Tampa wins, however, away from home and with the Eagles riding high on confidence after their win last week, it does present a dangerous game for Brady and co.
Prediction: Buccaneers win a close game.
