Thursday Night Football open thread: Buccaneers at Eagles

Pride of Detroit

Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season kicks off tonight with a matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Buccaneers are one of the best teams in the league right now, riding a 4-1 record and an excellent offense. Their lone loss came against the Rams in Week 3, but last week’s victory over the Dolphins was a stomping. Although their run game has disappointed, the wide arsenal of targets for Tom Brady certainly makes up for it.

The Eagles are just below .500, but tonight should be a major challenge for them. Jalen Hurts has been a roller coaster of a quarterback, with great plays often overshadowed by awful ones. He and his offense will need to find some consistency if they want to topple the Bucs. Much like Tampa Bay, the Eagles run game has been missing in action, with Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell combining for just 105 rushing yards over their last two games.

Can the Eagles overcome a tough opponent, or will the Bucs keep rolling?
