Potential Lineup for Eagles in Wild Card Game Against Buccaneers

Published on


The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to make history in the upcoming season, and it all begins with a pivotal game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. This highly anticipated match will take place on ESPN’s Monday Night Football and will be a rematch of their previous encounter in Week 3. The Eagles are coming off a 25-11 victory in their last showdown with the Buccaneers, where they racked up 201 rushing yards and quarterback Jalen Hurts passed for 277 yards.
