The Bucs (4-1) are heading north to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles after dominating the Dolphins Sunday, 45-17. Brady threw five touchdowns in the win and came out to his postgame press conference with his throwing hand wrapped up. Tuesday, he told reporters he was having some "discomfort" but the injury is "nothing serious." The 44-year-old is 3-0 for his career in Philly and 13-3 with a 103 passer rating on Thursday nights.. 

Mike Evans and Antonio Brown both helped Brady with his monster game last week. Each put together a two-touchdown, 100-plus-yard performance. 

The Eagles (2-3) are fresh off their first win since week one when they dismantled the Falcons in Atlanta. This past Sunday, they were able to shake off a very rusty start offensively and pull out a 21-18 victory over the Carolina Panthers and they needed help from everyone to do so.

Cornerback Darius Slay came up with two interceptions, his first two-pick game since  December of 2017. Jalen Hurts steadied the offense late in the game to rush for two touchdowns. His second was set up well on a blocked punt by the Eagles' special teams unit. Hurts was able to throw a perfect strike to DeVonta Smith in the back of the end zone for a two point conversion on their final TD.  Hurts has posted a passer rating of 93.3 in his first season having the starters' reins. He's thrown for seven touchdowns and rushed for three more. 

Rookie head coach Nick Sirianni has had some growing pains as a play caller, but this week said a key on a short week is to make things easy, "It's to make sure you're keeping things simple and not getting too complicated," Sirianni told the media Tuesday.

The Buccaneers are 7-point road favorites over the Eagles. The over/under is 52.5 points.

Buccaneers inactives: Rob Gronkowski (TE), Antoine Winfield Jr. (S), Lavonte David (LB), Jaelon Darden (WR), Kyle Trask (QB), Nick Leverett (G)

Eagles inactives: Gardner Minshew (QB), Mac McCain (CB), Lane Johnson (OT), Jack Anderson (OL), Marlon Tuipulotu (DT)
