Live Ticker Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Philadelphia Eagles (NFL 2022 Playoffs, Wild Card Weekend)


With full force?

The Eagles can go into the crucial part of the season at virtually full strength with only guard Nate Herbig and defensive end Josh Sweat being serious absentees. In contrast, the Buccaneers will be missing injured wide receiver Cyril Grayson in particular, after lead receiver Chris Godwin (injured) and Antonio Brown (fired) are already out. In addition, Brady has to do without his two top running backs Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones on his offense. There might be an opportunity for the Eagles here.


Philly underdog

The Philadelphia Eagles narrowly escaped the playoffs with a 9-8 season, while four franchises with the same record can only watch today. Four wins from Week 13 through Week 17 swept the Pennsylvania team into the wild card, where they now compete as underdogs. In October, the Eagles lost 22:28 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and were now 21 points behind. But in Philadelphia they like to write underdog stories, like three years ago when they beat Tom Brady 41-33 with the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.


The defending champion enters

Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers just missed a bye week. Now they have the Philadelphia Eagles to deal with, even though the Bucs shared a franchise-record 13-4 record with the Green Bay Packers in a win-loss ratio. At the beginning of the season things got stuck, which is why they were only 6-3 at times, but Tampa Bay improved again in the second half of the season. Scoring in particular worked flawlessly, with the exception of the 15th game day when Brady and Co. lost 9-0 to the New Orleans Saints.


It’s getting wild!

Wild Card Weekend is coming up! After the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills qualified for the divisional playoffs yesterday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles want to follow suit today. Kick-off is at 7:00 p.m.!
