Tampa Bay Buccaneers Key Players To Watch

The Buccaneers led by R. Fitzpatrick put a sweet 48 past New Orleans in week one but they also allowed 40 points. Rankings for the first NFL week put them on the 8th position in pass-blocking effectiveness. That will be put under scrutiny when they face the reigning champs on Sunday.

QB R. Fitzpatrick had an excellent game in week one and will be eager to improve on that. He has a good battalion of receivers in the form of Godwin, O.J Howard, and the impressive duo of Jackson & Evans. All these players need to be in excellent form for the Buccaneers to breach the compact “defending” champs’ safety line.

Philadelphia Eagles Focusing Rookies

The reigning champs got the job done in week one with an 18-12 win over the Falcons. Much of the credit for that win goes to the defensive unit that’s led by Def. Player of the year, Fletcher Cox. QB N. Foles, however, struggled in that game and the offensive team was very inconsistent.

With Wentz out due to injury, Foles will need to pull up his sock and deliver the goods. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on RB J. Ajayi to run the show alongside Clement and D. Sproles. Week 1 saw Ajayi post 62 yards of running and a total of two scores.

Eagles vs Buccaneers Week 2 Game Prediction

The Eagles have been grinding out results in the past seven outings but will need to come out strong to avoid this matchup being somewhat like a shootout like we saw in the Bucs game vs New Orleans.

On the contrary, Buccaneers will need to step up and play a collective quality game when they line up against an excellent Eagles’ defense. The Buccaneers’ defense isn’t the best out there but they’ll have one job on Sunday; slow down the Eagles’ offense as much as possible so that the hosts can squeeze a narrow win.

Eagles have won the past 16 out of eighteen games. However, they are inconsistent in games and the Bucs will opportunistically grab this one. So, the most possible score will be Bucs 27 – 25 Eagles.
