Eagles vs. Buccaneers live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ game



Tom Brady has long made it known he’d like to keep playing until he’s 50. Roughly a quarter of the way through his age-44 season, he’s shown no signs of slowing down and has a favorable matchup upcoming against the Eagles.

The Buccaneers are 4-1 right now and in first place in the NFC South, with much of the success on Brady’s shoulders. In his second year in Tampa, Brady leads the NFL in both yards and completions thus far and is second in passing touchdowns with 15 through five games. He’s also coming off a 411 yard, five touchdown performance his last time out.

Brady will be without star tight end Rob Gronkowski for the third straight game, but it may not matter. Even in Gronkowski’s prolonged absence, the Buccaneers currently rank third in both points scored and total yards. They’re taking on an Eagles team that has one of the worst defenses in the league as well, which should bode well for Leonard Fournette.

The Eagles are coming off a come-from-behind 21-18 win over Carolina, the first fourth-quarter comeback Jalen Hurts has led the Eagles to in his career. Hurts turned the ball over once and fumbled once, but also notched two rushing touchdowns.

Hurts leads the Eagles in rushing yards, an area the Eagles may lean on with tight end Dallas Goeddert on the COVID list. However, seven skill position players on the Eagles have 100 or more receiving yards this season, so Hurts likes to spread the ball around.

The Eagles are looking to get back to .500 and maintain some ground in the NFC East, while Tampa is looking to extend its lead in the NFC South.
