Why the Buccaneers can cover
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers’ offense exploded against the Miami Dolphins. Tampa Bay had 558 total yards of offense and averaged 7.9 yards per play. Tom Brady dominated the Dolphins’ secondary, going 30-of-41 for 411 yards and five touchdowns. Even at 44 years old, Brady is still doing things for the first time in his career. In fact, that was the first game in which he threw for 400 passing yards and five TDs in a single game.
The Buccaneers’ offense has an abundance of weapons, but wide receivers Antonio Brown and Mike Evans stood out in Week 5. Brown hauled in seven passes for a season-high 124 yards with two touchdowns, while Mike Evans reeled in six receptions for 113 yards and two scores.
Why Eagles can cover
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles rolled into Bank of America Stadium last Sunday and beat the Carolina Panthers in Week 5. Philadelphia’s defense came to play on Sunday and caused havoc for Sam Darnold. The Eagles snagged three interceptions on the day and held Darnold to 177 passing yards. The Eagles’ offense struggled in the first half, but found its groove after the break.
Hurts connected with receiver Quez Watkins for a 53-yard gain to put Philadelphia in the red zone. Hurts then forced his way into the end zone for a rushing touchdown. The 2020 second-round pick rushed for two scores and led the Eagles to 15 second-half points. Philadelphia showed its grit and desire in its comeback victory against Carolina and will carry that momentum on a short week against the Bucs.
