Series History

Tampa Bay leads all-time 11-10 including NFL playoffs. The last meeting was a wild card game following the 2021 season, which the Bucs won 31-15 in Tampa – what would prove to be the final playoff victory in Tom Brady’s career. The Bucs jumped out to a 31-0 lead on the strength of Tom Brady touchdown passes to Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski, and the Bucs’ defense held quarterback Jalen Hurts to 38 rushing yards and one touchdown pass while intercepting him twice.


Why Bet on Philadelphia Eagles?

The Eagles are 2-0 but have played two closer games than they needed to. In last Thursday’s 34-28 win over Minnesota, the Eagles missed three defensive starters (linebacker Nakobe Dean, cornerback James Bradberry, safety Reed Blankenship) to start the game and then lost a host of players at various points of the game – most notably cornerback Avonte Maddox – and played on. Bradberry and Blankenship are back this week. Maddox will not play.

The Eagles are the first team in NFL history to open a season 2-0 despite allowing seven passing touchdowns through two weeks. Nine teams allowed six, from the 1955 Washington Football Team through the 2018 Chiefs. They’re also the first team in NFL history to go 2-0 despite allowing 300 or more passing yards while being held to 175 or fewer yards in both of their first two games.

Philly has turned the ball over twice so far – a Jalen Hurts fumble in Week 1 and an interception in Week 2 – but has compensated for those giveaways by forcing an NFL-high six takeaways – five on defense and one on special teams. That plus-4 is a huge reason the Eagles have started 2-0.

In the win over Minnesota, Hurts recorded his 9th-career game with at least two rushing touchdowns. With two rushing touchdowns more on Monday, Hurts will tie Cam Newton (10 games) for the most such games by a quarterback in NFL history. Hurts has 28 rushing touchdowns in 47 career games. With one more rushing touchdown, he will surpass Newton (28) for the most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in his first 50 career games.

Star wideout DeVonta Smith had been dealing with some minor injuries last week in practice but has been cleared to play. He already has nearly 200 receiving yards and 11 receptions through two games. Fellow wideout Quez Watkins and reserve running back Boston Scott are both out. Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) didn’t have an injury listed on the team’s final injury report so he will be back after missing Week 2 and likely share carries with D’Andre Swift and Rashaad Penny.

With Watkins out, Coach Nick Sirianni spoke on Saturday about a potential chance for an expanded role for Olamide Zaccheaus, who has 13 catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns in his career against Tampa Bay from his time with the Falcons.

“He brings a toughness. We trust him. He’s a savvy route runner,” Sirianni said of Zaccheaus. “He’s got great football instincts. If it’s turn to play this week, I’ve got a lot of faith in him that he’ll do a really good job.”

MNF road favorites of three to seven points — like the Eagles — are 46-33 ATS (58%) over the past two decades.

Why Bet on Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

The Bucs are a surprise 2-0 team and new starting QB Baker Mayfield has been dialing it up in first-year offensive coordinator Dave Canales’ system in ways we haven’t often seen from him in the past. Mayfield has completed 47 of 68 passes for 501 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 105.1 — fifth-best among quarterbacks taking at least 50% of their teams’ snaps this season.

Mayfield’s overall numbers include a 104.4 passer rating, a 69.1% completion percentage and a rate of 7.21 yards per pass attempt. His passer rating on non-third down plays is 86.3, but on third downs it’s a stellar 132.1. He has completed 87.0% of his passes (20 of 23) on third downs, compared to 60.0% on all other downs. And his yards per attempt on third downs hasn’t just jumped up a bit, it’s gone up a lot, from 6.42 to 8.74.

For head coach Todd Bowles, the key to this isn’t just how well the play-calling is on third down — it’s making the most of first and second down, too.

Mike Evans finished with eight catches for 171 receiving yards and a touchdown in last week’s win over Chicago, his 10th career game with 150 or more receiving yards. It moved him out of a three-way tie with Tyreek Hill and T.Y. Hilton for most games of 150 or more receiving yards since 2014.

“I think if we get in third-and-manageable – I know [Mayfield]’s got some third-and-longs – if we can get in third-and-manageable, that gives us a good chance to succeed,” Bowles said. “We’ve been running it [well] enough to get in third-and-manageable positions so we’re going to try and continue that.”

The line of scrimmage will carry significant weight on the outcome of Monday’s matchup and the clash between Bucs’ left tackle Tristan Wirfs and Eagles’ power rusher Haason Reddick will be one to keep an eye on. Reddick is one of the best in the NFL at getting from point A to point B, and he does not just win off the high side. But Wirfs can absorb rushers, redirect their power to shield the quarterback in the pocket and Wirfs has the strength to push opponents off his frame, utilizing a well-timed punch to gain leverage.

The Bucs’ run defense ranks second in the league, behind the Eagles, and their total defense is ninth. The Bucs’ defense has allowed 17.0 points per game, which is top 10 in the NFL. But there are a few key injuries. Pro Bowl linebacker Devin White is questionable with a groin injury and starting cornerback Carlton Davis is questionable with a toe injury. Both were limited in practice this week but both likely to play.
