As.com

COMMENT

The Tampa Bay Bucs used a big first half cushion to secure their fifth win of the season in Philadelphia. Tom Brady passed for 297 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs 28-22 win over the Eagles.

High scoring start for both teams

Both teams came out and exchanged touchdowns of their opening drives. Brady and the Bucs received the kickoff and marched right down the field in a five minute 10-play drive capped by a O.J. Howard two yard touchdown reception.

Philadelphia came out looking good with Hurts using is feet and his arm to drive down the field. The big play of the scoring drive was a 45 yard  pass interference call against the Bus which put the Eagles on the five yard line. Jalen Hurts found Zach Ertz for the touchdown pass.

The Bucs punched back right after with another five minute drive that started at their own 25. This time is was Brady connecting with Antonio Brown on a 23 yard pitch and catch for a touchdown.

Dismal first half of offense for Philly

Philadelphia really struggled on the offensive end after their opening drive. They had just one first down the rest of the half and went to the halftime break with just 73 yards of total offense.

Leonard Fournette stretched the lead out with under two minutes left in the half after and 11 play drive to take the Bucs to the halftime break up 21-7.

A three-and-out to start the third quarter wasn’t what the Eagles had in mind. Allowing the Bucs to score a touchdown after a seven minute, 12-play drive was certainly not what Philadelphia was planning on.

Pass interfence call spurred Philly comeback bid

But the home side showed signs of life on the next possession. It all started with another long pass interference call against the Bucs, this time for 50 yards. To this point the Eagles had more yardage because of flags on Tampa Bay than actual offense.

Early in the fourth quarter Bruce Arians decided to go for the first down on 4th and 3 from the PHI 46, but the Bucs were stopped and it seemed like momentum shifted in instantaneously.

Eagles waited until 4th quarter to get Sanders involved

Philly finally got running back Miles Sanders into the game, and 47 of the 54 yards on the touchdown drive that would tighten the game to 28-22 after a two point conversion that in the end really only impacted those who gambled on the game (the spread was 6.5 in favor of the Bucs).

A ticky tac taunting call against Genard Avery and the Eagles advanced the Bucs to nearly midfield. A 27 yard completion from Brady to Brown on third down was enough the close the game out and shut the door on the Eagles comeback bid.

Just 213 yards of offense for Eagles

Somehow the Eagles made the attempt at a comeback after totaling just 213 yards of total offense. Hurts passed for just 115 yards, and a touchdown. He did have 10 rushes for 44 yards, but Philadelphia waited much to long to get Sanders into the game. He finished with 56 yards on nine carries.

Brady went 34/42 for nearly 300 yards, but it seemed like that thumb injury bothered him from the end of the first half until the end of the game. Leonard Fournette had 127 yards of total offense and two rushing touchdowns.

The Buccaneers move to five wins on the season, joining the Arizona Cardinals, who have a game in hand, as the only teams with five victories this season. Philadelphia falls to 2-4 and things could start to get ugly in the City of Brotherly  Love after losing four of their last five.

Not a bad start to a title defense campaign.

Lenny knows what it's all about

Brady and the Bucs will have a mini bye week after the short week.

Coach Arians likes what he's been seeing from his RB1

Hurts to bring it to a one score game, but the Eagles would not get the ball back as Tampa Bay ran the clock all the way down on the next possession.

Primetime games have been giving us plenty of drama since the beginning of the season. Tampa Bay had to use a last minute field goal to beat the Cowboys on the opening night of the season. Last Monday night the Ravens needed overtime to beat the Colts after a remarkable comeback.

According to Bet365.com the Buccaneers are 7 point favorites in Philly with the Over/Under set at 53.

Brady has already passed for 1,767 yards with 15 touchdowns and just two picks with a 108.5 passer rating. He leads the league in passing yards, and is second only to Patrick Mahomes' 16 touchdowns.

Did I mention he's 44?

Brady's thumb

Tom Brady suffered a knock to his thumb in last weeks win over the Dolphins, but finished the game with five touchdown passes. Brady didn't throw passes in Monday's practice and had his hand wrapped and in a glove on Tuesday. He described his finger as being "sore" but nothing serious.

Full story here

In his sophomore season Jalen Hurts has experienced his ups and downs over the first five games. The opening win against Atlanta was surley a sign of promise and what could be in the LIberty City but three straight losses snapped Philly fans out of euphoria real quick.

The Bucs have got their Super Bowl title defense off on the right foot winning four of their first five games of the season, with an offense that looks damn near impossible to slow down.

Helloa everyone and welcome to Philadelphia for tonight's primetime match up between Brady and the Buc's and Hurts and Eagles.

Thursday Night Preview: Bucs vs Eagles

The defending Super Bown champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Philadelphia Eagles to get Week 6 started. AS English will be with you all night long providing live coverage, stats, stories and highlights of tonight’s NFC showdown from Lincoln Financial Field.

Tampa Bay has dropped just one game this year. That came back from a  Week 3 loss in which they were outclassed by a Los Angeles Rams team that came into that game to make a statement.

Since the 34-24 loss in Tinsel Town the Bucs got through a tricky game in Foxborough against Tom Brady’s football father. In the end No. 12 got the better of former coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots after a last minute missed field goal by Nick Folk.

After that came divisional game in a battle for bragging rights in Florida. Brady lit the Dolphins up with five touchdowns in route to a 45-17 stomping of Miami. Everything seemed flawless, but it turns out Brady injured his thumb in the late stages of the first half.

Nothing was said, cameras didn’t pick up on it, and teammates and coaches had no idea until late in the game or after the clock hit all zeros. By that time Brady had tossed three touchdowns since banging his thumb on a defenders helmet in the second quarter.

The Eagles season has been filled with peaks and valleys from the start. Jalen Hurts was handed the keys to the Caddie at the start of the season, and the result has been.. mixed.

All signs pointed to success in Philly’s opening week 32-6 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Hurts had three touchdown passes, threw for 264 yards and ran for another 62.

Three straight losses to the Niners, Cowboys and Chiefs grounded the Eagles. Hurts and the Eagles did have a bounce back game last Sunday when they travelled to Carolina and topped the then 3-1 Panthers. The Philly defense stepped up in the second half, allowing just three points in the second half.

The Eagles shut Sam Darnold down, allowing only 177 yards and forcing 3 interceptions. They won’t have it that easy this week as Tom Brady comes into town. The Bucs have the third ranked offense in the league averaging 33.4 points and piling up 431 yards a game.

Brady is weary of the defensive pressure that the Eagles put on opposing quarterbacks and will have to be vigilant, especially with an injured thumb that he described as “sore” but nothing serious.

We have seen flashes of brilliance from Hurts who has two 300 hundred games, and seven touchdowns with just three picks. Tonight he will need help from his run game, while he plays game manager keeping Brady off the field as long as possible.

Starting running back Miles Sanders has yet to run for 100 yards, and back up Kenneth Gainwell has yet to kickstart his season.

It’s Brady and the Bucs in Philly to take on the Eagles. Kickoff from Lincoln Financial Field is set for 8:20 p.m. ET.
