The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the final Wild Card game of the weekend, hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. As of this writing, the Eagles are 3-point favorites against the Bucs despite the game taking place in Tampa Bay.

The Bucs managed to win their division at 9-8 and knew that whoever didn't win the NFC East would be coming to play them over Super Wild Card Weekend. That team is the Eagles, who started the season strong before crumpling in the final month, losing five of their final six games.

That meltdown led to the Cowboys passing the Eagles for the division title and now there won't be any playoff games held in Philadelphia (well, I guess it's possible but unlikely). The Buccaneers didn't look all that great in their season finale but they won the game and that's utlimately all that matters, especially this time of the year.

With this being the final game of the weekend, who is set to be in the broadcast booth?

Buccaneers vs. Eagles Wild Card announcers

The Bucs/Eagles game will air on ESPN so that means it's the typical Monday Night Football crew that will be calling this one. We'll have Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Lisa Salters on call with Buck doing play-by-play, Aikman doing color commentary, and Salters as the sideline reporter.

Funny enough, we saw this exact same match-up on Monday Night Football earlier in the season and with this same broadcast team on the call. The Eagles won that game 25-11. That was the only time the Buccaneers played on Monday Night Football this season.
