Philadelphia total offense – 383yds/gm

Bucs total defense –  394yds/gm

Bucs total offense – 280yds/gm

Philadelphia total defense – 262yds/gm

3rd down conversions Philadelphia offense – 18/42 or 42.9%

3rd down conversions Philadelphia defense – 9/40 or 22.5%

Philadelphia turnover margin – +2

On paper this game doesn’t look close.  The Eagles have been dominant on both sides of the ball while the Bucs have looked awful in just about all aspects of the game.  I do think Josh Johnson will show some improvement today, but the Bucs D will need to bring its a game for us to have a chance.

Prediction:  Eagles 27  Bucs 16
