The Buccaneers could have their hands full with a scrappy Eagles team.

The Buccaneers are 4-1 and in sole possession of the NFC South. That feels good to say for the first time in a while.

Tampa under Tom Brady really is a new team, and having the time to practice and build some chemistry after winning the Super Bowl only makes this unit more potent.

The Bucs have played a few too many teams close this season, but the Dolphins game was hopefully a turning point for the season. If Tampa wants to truly be a great team, this game against the Eagles is beyond must-win; the Bucs need to dominate.

Buccaneers vs. Eagles Odds Week 6

The Buccaneers are seven-point favorites against the Eagles according to WynnBET. After the beating the Dolphins just took, it is more than fair that Tampa is starting to get a bit more respect from the oddsmakers.

The over/under is set at 52.0. With the Buccaneer offense and defense in consideration, this should be a high-scoring affair by all accounts.

Buccaneers vs. Eagles predictions Week 6

Jalen Hurts is scary. Having to face a quarterback like that with so much mobility and the ability to improvise in broken plays is the kryptonite for this roster.

The Buccaneer secondary will be pushed for the first time since the matchup with the Rams. Hurts will take everything Tampa gave the Patriots and the Dolphins and then some. The short game is all Philly can lean on reliably, and Hurts only complicates matters for the Bucs with his legs.

Regardless, the Bucs are making changes on defense after dominating Miami, and Tom Brady is still playing like the best quarterback in the NFL. It should be hard for the Eagles to keep this one close.
