How to Watch Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wild Card Game

The NFL playoffs continue Sunday in the Super Wild Card weekend with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking to defend their Super Bowl title with a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady begins his quest for an eighth Super Bowl ring against a rookie quarterback, Jalen Hurts, on the other side.

Brady this season led the Buccaneers to their first NFC title since 2007. The Buccaneers are the No. 2 seed in the NFC behind Green Bay, and a win Sunday would grant Tampa Bay another home game in the divisional round next weekend before a looming showdown in the NFC Championship against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers for a second-straight year.

Quick Hits

  • These are the only two NFC teams to win a Super Bowl in the last seven seasons. Tampa Bay won the title last season, and the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots four seasons ago. Tampa Bay's Tom Brady was the quarterback of that New England team from the 2017 season.
  • Philadelphia led the NFL in rushing offense (159.7 per game) and rushing touchdowns (25) this season.
  • The Eagles this season became only the fifth team in the Super Bowl era to rack up 175-plus rush yards in seven-consecutive games (Weeks 8-15), last accomplished by the 1985 Chicago Bears, who had Walter Payton and won the Super Bowl that year.
  • On the flip side, Tampa Bay's defense led the NFL in rushing defense with only 92.5 yards allowed per game.
  • Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady led the NFL in passing yards (a career-high 5,316 yards) and passing touchdowns (43). His yardage was the third-most in a single season all-time. Brady's 485 completions were the most in single-season all-time.
  • Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, who'll be the fourth quarterback in just three games this year to make his postseason debut, led all NFL signal callers in rushing yards (784) and rushing touchdowns (10) this season. Hurts has five career games with 2-plus rushing touchdowns, which is the most by a quarterback in his first two seasons in the Super Bowl era.
