Tom Brady is back on primetime to kick off the NFL week 6 slate in a Thursday night visit to Philadelphia. Brady had his share of struggles against old ‘mates on Sunday Night Football vs. New England, but bounced back with 5 TD passes last week vs. Miami.
The Eagles aren’t necessarily a pushover in this spot at home and getting a TD. Philly got their defense in check in a 21-18 win at Carolina last weekend and Jalen Hurts seems to get better every week whether it’s on the ground or through the air.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The short turnaround isn’t ideal for a Tampa Bay team that would’ve hoped for some extra rest to get some bodies back. Lavonte David, Jason Pierre-Paul, Antoine Winfield, and Carlton Davis are all on the injury report for the Bucs defense.
Tampa Bay could get Rob Gronkowski back from the rib injury that has cost him the last two games but does Brady even really need him? Brady threw for 411 and 5 scores on Sunday vs. the Dolphins with Antonio Brown (124) and Mike Evans (113) both having big yardage days as well as 2 TD catches apiece.
Brady gets to face a Philadelphia defense that was solid against Carolina last week picking off Sam Darnold three times. They gave up 83 total points the two weeks prior – albeit against Dallas and Kansas City – but Tampa Bay has a pretty good offense of their own ranking #3 in points scored (33.4).
The Bucs defense does get a challenge this week as they haven’t really faced a mobile QB like Jalen Hurts all season. Tampa Bay is also an enigma on defense, ranking 1st vs. the run (45.8 ypg) but last vs. the pass (314.4).
Can Hurts take advantage if Tampa Bay does indeed continue to be a little banged up on defense? The Philly QB had 198 yards and an INT through the air on Sunday in Carolina but also had 30 yards rushing with two scores.
One of the big concerns the Eagles should have right now is that Hurts is the majority of their offense. Miles Sanders finally got double digit carries vs. the Panthers, but he and Kenneth Gainwell had a total of 13 carries in the two weeks prior. Hurts has 26 carries over the last three weeks.
The Eagles defense also isn’t totally out of the woods especially with Brady coming to town. Philly gave up a 5 TD day to Patrick Mahomes in week 4 and allowed 3 TD passes to Dak Prescott the week prior as well as 2 TD runs to Zeke Elliott.

4* Free Week 6 NFL Betting Prediction: Over 52
This game feels a lot like Tampa Bay’s 20-19 loss to Chicago last season. It was on the road, on a Thursday night, and roughly the same time of year (week 5). Tampa Bay is a bit banged up on defense and haven’t faced a dual threat QB quite like Hurts this season.
It would be nice if the Eagles had a little more balance in their offense, but on the bright side the Philly defense looked much better last week against Carolina. That being said, this is still going to be a shootout.
