Why the Buccaneers can cover

If you thought being 44 years old was going to slow Tom Brady down, you couldn’t have been more wrong. The legendary quarterback led the NFL with a career-high 5,316 passing yards and 43 touchdown tosses while setting a single-season record with 485 completions. Brady joined Drew Brees as the only players with multiple 5,000-yard passing seasons and Aaron Rodgers as the only signal-callers with three season of at least 40 TD tosses.

Chris Godwin (team highs of 98 catches and 1,103 receiving yards) won’t be available due to a season-ending knee injury, but Brady still has reliable weapons at his disposal. Mike Evans was second in the NFL with a career-high 14 touchdown receptions and became the first player in league history with 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first eight seasons by amassing 1,035 on 74 catches. Meanwhile, long-time teammate Rob Gronkowski has posted back-to-back 100-yard performances and was second on the Buccaneers in 2021 with six TD receptions.

Why the Eagles can cover

A healthy Jalen Hurts is of the utmost importance to Philadelphia, which is why coach Nick Sirianni chose to keep his quarterback out of the 51-26 loss to Dallas in the regular-season finale. The 23-year-old Hurts, who suffered a sprained ankle against the New York Giants in Week 12 that caused him to miss one contest, played a major role in the Eagles’ league-best ground attack this year. Philadelphia topped the NFL with an average of 159.7 rushing yards per game, and the 2020 second-round draft pick led the team with 784 yards on the ground.

While Hurts will be on the field Sunday, there’s hope that he’ll have Miles Sanders with him in the backfield after he practiced on Wednesday. The third-year running back from Penn State missed the final two regular-season games with a broken hand that he suffered versus the Giants in Week 16. Despite appearing in only 12 games, Sanders is second on the Eagles in rushing with 754 yards and posted back-to-back 100-yard performances, his first two of the season, prior to the contest against New York.
