Playoff Picture: Eagles Wild Card opponent revealed
The Eagles have a date with the defending Super Bowl champions next weekend.
With San Francisco defeating the Rams, Philadelphia will enter the postseason as the #7 seed to take on the #2 seed Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The two met back in Week 6 with the Bucs coming out on top 28-22, but they are both very different teams now than they were three months ago.
Tampa has lost key players down the stretch, now without Chris Godwin, Leonard Fournette, Lavonte David, and Antonio Brown. Meanwhile, the Eagles have emerged as the top rushing team in the league behind second-year QB Jalen Hurts.
The matchup will take place Sunday at 1 PM at Raymond James Stadium.
The Eagles end the season with five (5!) rushers averaging over 4 yards per carry:— Victor Williams (@ThePhillyPod) January 9, 2022
• Jalen Hurts: 5.6
• Miles Sanders: 5.5
• Jordan Howard: 4.7
• Boston Scott: 4.3
• Kenneth Gainwell: 4.3
Idk how many other teams have done this prior, but I’d be willing to bet not many.
