The Eagles vs Buccaneers live stream features a Philadelphia Eagles team that probably thought they'd be at home during Wild Card Weekend, staying home and resting up on their first round bye week. Instead, they find themselves playing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET in this NFL live stream.

Well into the latter part of the NFL season, the Eagles looked like the most dominant and best team in football. They were 10-1, easily dominating their division, and looking like the obvious choice for the Super Bowl’s NFC team. But then things changed. And in a string of stunning defeats, the Eagles found themselves losing five of their last six games and ending their season at 11-6.

It's with that cold streak in mind that the Eagles are entering Wild Card Weekend with plenty of question marks. On paper, for sure, the Eagles are the better team. They have a better defense, a better offense, a coach who knows how to rally the team, and so much more. But they’ve also lost the last five of their six games and we just don’t know if we’re going to get that dominant team from the first half of the season or if we’ll get the decidedly low-powered team of the last several weeks.

Meanwhile, the Bucs are no slouches. Mike Evans is one of the best receivers in football and continues to put on a show each week. And with the Eagles defense in one of the worst slumps of any squad this year, it’s possible Evans could carve them up tomorrow. Although the Bucs defense isn’t much to write home about, it’s still possible that the recently sluggish Eagles offense just doesn’t come ready to play.

At the beginning of the season, anyone would have said the Eagles would handily win this game. But we can’t say that now — not until the end of this Eagles vs Buccaneers live stream.

DraftKings has the Eagles as 3-point road favorites with the over/under set at 44 points. Vegas seems confident that the Eagles come out with the win, but aren't expecting a blowout.
