The Eagles (9-8) find themselves in the playoffs one year after a four-win season. They accomplished that goal with first-year head coach Nick Sirianni and second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts who had just four starts under his belt before taking over the starter’s reigns for good this season.

Sirianni made an adjustment in the middle of this season and with it, changed the fate of the Eagles' season. He shifted his play-calling from a pass-first approach to rely more on their run game. As a result, the Eagles closed out the 2021 regular season as the NFL’s top ranked rushing team. Hurts led the team and all quarterbacks with 784 yards on the ground, while running backs Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenny Gainwell combined for 1,824 yards this season.  

The Buccaneers (13-5) enter the playoffs as the NFC's second seed, and they are in pursuit of becoming the first back-to-back Super Bowl Champions since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots. Of course, that Patriots team was led by none-other-than a 26 and 27-year-old Tom Brady. The now 44-year-old has led the Bucs’ franchise to consecutive playoff appearances for the first time in two decades. Even at this age Brady continues his stellar career as he led the NFL in passing yards (5,316) and touchdowns (43) this season. 

Tampa wrapped up their regular season winning seven of their final eight games despite some adversity in the final weeks of the season. They lost leading receiver Chris Godwin to an ACL tear in a week 15 loss to the Saints. Then a few weeks later released Antonia Brown following a wild on-field altercation that ended with the 33-year-old wide out removing his pads and jersey only to prance off the field during the game. 

The Buccaneers are currently 7-point favorites against the Eagles. The over/under is 47. 

So, who wins this leg of the race to Super Bowl 2022?
