Eagles' DE Josh Sweat will not play today after overcoming a "life-threatening" situation this week.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
The Eagles now officially hold the 15th, 16th and 19th overall picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. There was immense growth from Jalen Hurts this season, but if Philly wants to pursue a veteran QB via a trade, few teams are as well equipped to do so. A fascinating offseason ahead.
Jalen Reagor loses football games. I've said it all year. He should not be playing.
Jason Kelce & @tkelce's mom Donna is on the ultimate mission today: 2 playoff games in 1 day. First up, Tampa Bay to see Jason and the @Eagles! @dkelce1 pic.twitter.com/qMVR0mSh7n
Hard to run on a loaded box. Might need to get the ball to that DeVonta Smith fellow
Whole league watching. A free agent again this offseason. You're seeing why Ryan Kerrigan is first-team All-CTC.
Boston Scott gets to the end zone. #PHIvsTB | #FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/hfrQEYWOYb
Nick Sirianni is not the worst coach eliminated today.
Fletcher Cox leads the #Eagles out onto the field. Eagles have to get a big game from him today.
- Dallas Goedert - Avonte Maddox - Josh Sweat - Jordan Mailata Four players from a five-man draft class who have developed into key starters and already signed contract extensions. The story behind the 2018 draft: theathletic.com/3066633/2022/0…
Injury Update: LB T.J. Edwards has been downgraded to out.
Miles Sanders, Kenny Gainwell, Boston Scott, Jalen Reagor, and Quez Watkins all have targets. (And Goedert, of course.) Best weapon in the Eagles' passing game can't get a look through 4 possession. twitter.com/JimmyKempski/s…
All you need to know about the racist tendencies of NFL owners to pass over black coaches is the fact that Jonathan Gannon has multiple interviews and Todd Bowles has one
Injury Update: T Lane Johnson (knee) is questionable to return.
Nate Herbig will be inactive with his ankle issue. So Sua Opeta will play pic.twitter.com/aiNtFQ1lar
Jordan Mailata: "It breaks my hurt to see my QB solely take responsibility and say that it's on him. It's not. It's on me. It's on every player. I messed up as well not giving him enough time. ...We all need to be better."
Nick said he would have put Greg Ward back to return punts after Reagor's fumble but Ward was suffering from back spasms.
Jake Elliott just made a field goal from about 45-yards out #Eagles
The time for talking is over and the Eagles are a little under five hours from kicking off a wild card playoff game against the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
The weather could be playing a factor on Sunday, with torrential rain passing through in the morning, and almost 30-MPH winds circulating at game time.
The Eagles averaged a league-leading 159.7 rushing yards per game, and they’ll have both Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard available for Tampa’s top-ranked rush defense.
The Buccaneers ruled out wide receiver Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and running back Ronald Jones (ankle) for Sunday’s game
Down 17-0, Eagles would probably be better off playing Gardner Minshew from here.
Touchdown Eagles. Hurts to Kenneth Gainwell. Going for two, which would still have them down 16.
Josh Allen recorded a 98.5 Total QBR tonight. That's the best postseason QBR game in the metric's history (since 2006). Previous record was Tom Brady's 98.0 against the Jaguars in the 2007 divisional round.
#Bucs RT Tristan Wirfs (ankle) is questionable to return after hobbling off into the locker room.
Mike Evans has set a new Buccaneers' single-game postseason record with his ninth catch.
Remember in Week One when Lavonte David took off his helmet after a red-zone stop vs. Cowboys and no one saw it?
FIRE THE CANNONS. Ke'Shawn Vaughn puts the Bucs up 14-0. #GoBucs 📺: #PHIvsTB on FOX 📱: NFL app pic.twitter.com/7u5TMmPwxl
Rob Gronkowski has 15 rec TD in the postseason. No other TE in NFL history even has 10. pic.twitter.com/F94KJvC8g0
.@Buccaneers defense is rolling! Mike Edwards gets the INT in the end zone. #GoBucs 📺: #PHIvsTB on FOX 📱: NFL app pic.twitter.com/pOjvaq1ajA
Antonio Brown Spoof. Playoff Willy went Super Gremlin on @fullsendpodcast with the @nelkboys right after getting cut from the Raiders. Kumbaya..🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/1xdcNr5gQK
Ryan Jensen still out there at center. Didn't miss a snap. That's who he is.
Not sure why the Eagles are playing so much off coverage. No Chris Godwin, no AB, and the Bucs want to get it out quickly anyway. Especially now with 2 OL out (for now), Gannon has to be more aggressive in coverage in the secondary.

Playing in his first playoff game since suffering a concussion in the Meltdown at Paul Brown, Giovani Bernard scores a TD on Bucs' opening drive.
Buccaneers will be without CB Sean Murphy-Bunting, who has been ruled out. Their secondary is not great. #Eagles
lmao 350 lb Vita Vea dropping into coverage pic.twitter.com/Ebg17W3L7p
Safety Jordan Whitehead putting the pads on these boys!!! #H2P #Buccaneers
Decent chance that a Bucs player with one or zero total touchdowns this season finds the end zone today: Zero: Tyler Johnson, Jaelon Darden One: Le'Veon Bell, Scotty Miller, O.J. Howard, Breshad Perriman.
Most Field Goals made without a miss in postseason career (Super Bowl era) 1. Robbie Gould: 18 (with 3 in 1st half today for @49ers ) 2. Chris Boswell: 16 (entering tonight's game for @steelers) 3. Ryan Succop: 14 (with 1 today in the @Buccaneers win)
#Bucs CB Jamel Dean has played OUTSTANDING football today. One of the best games of his career so far.
Carlton Davis almost had another pick. Two he's missed today, but still a key breakup.
#Bucs are missing their top two RBs in Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones. So Ke'Shawn Vaughn should be RB1 today with Giovani Bernard and Le'Veon Bell backing him up.
Eagles muff the punt return -- Scotty Miller there first and Ross Cockrell recovers the loose ball.
Just spoke w/Bruce Arians about Leonard Fournette and why he won't return today: "It's just a little tweak (hamstring). He wasn't full Speed when he really opened up And tried to push off a couple times. It caught him, So we're just going to be very cautious with him." #GoBucs
I'd like to see Todd Bowles get another head-coaching shot, this time with a QB, a GM with a clear vision and a strong OC. The latter can't be minimized. He had musical OCs with the #Jets. He wasn't able to solve that issue.
So far, the CBS halftime crew has referenced "Jerome" Whitehead, and said Devin White was the linebacker the Bucs just got back from injury. Glad to know how much attention they're paying to the defending Super Bowl champs.
#Bucs LB Grant Stuard is already a special teams ace in Tampa Bay ... even as a rookie. Bright future covering kicks and punts.
Talked on the podcast about how the Bucs used that screen game in the RZ in Week 6, and what that might look like without Godwin and Brown. I guess the answer is screens to Cameron Brate!
Josh Wells is in at right tackle. Wirfs hasn't missed a snap in his two-year NFL career.
Eagles miss on third down -- Joe Tryon-Shoyinka spied Hurts and got a hand on pass incomplete. Punt, Bucs will go from their 30, up 7-0.
Antoine Winfield Jr. has a sack for the second week in a row, forcing an Eagles punt as the second quarter gets underway.
