Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles, second week of the season, this is not one of the best games to watch on TV but one of those with a good chance to bet with the Eagles. The visitors won the first game of the season against the Falcons, proved as a team that they have improved offense and defense. The home team also had a good debut against the Saints in the first week, but at home last year things did not end well for the Buccaneers.
Philadelphia Eagles: We are champions.
The Eagles come to Tampa Bay with a clear objective, to win this game that apparently will be very easy from the offensive point of view. Last season the team not only won the superbowl, but left a record of 16 wins and 3 losses with 85% effectiveness, the other important point is that on the road the record was 5 wins and 2 losses, likewise the end of the season was not easy against the Patriots 41-33. The calendar of this season is a bit easier than last season.
Carson Wentz will not be available for the second week. Nick Foles is the quarterback chosen for this game, against the Falcons did not have the best performance in the first game of the season, only 117 yards in passes, 19 passes completed 34 attempts. The effectiveness of Foles is only 55.88% in the season. Foles still does not complete a touchdown pass.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: We are ready to win.
Last season at home against big teams the Buccaneers lost 4 games of five against the Patriots, Panthers, Lions, Falcons and the only victory was against the Saints. Actually last season was a pessimism, 5-11 overall with 35.3% effectiveness. In the last six weeks of last season the Buccaneers could barely win a game. In this year’s debut, the team won against the Saints 48-40, it was a close game where all the quarters were tight and the team showed that they are hungry for victories but also problems in the defense.
Ryan Fitzpatrick had one of the best starts of the season in his career, 417 yards against the Saints is not easy, especially if you also include 4 touchdowns passes and 21 passes of 28 attempts with 75.1% effectiveness. The numbers support Ryan Fitzpatrick but offensive problems remain a serious problem. The Eagles have the best offense of the divison and the entire NFL.
