The last time Brady met the Eagles in the playoffs he dropped a TD pass. He doesn't forget.
Five keys to the game for when the Eagles play the Buccaneers this weekend.
Eagles vs Buccaneers Wild Card Weekend
From Patriot General to Bucs Pirate Tom Brady is the consummate playoff QB. In week 18 he posted 326 yds, 3 TD, and a 130.4 QBR. It's Brady's game. The rest of us are just watching.
Jalen Hurts has 16 TDs, 9 picks, 209.6 YPG, 61.3 cmp%, and an 87.2 QBR on the season. Not elite production. BUT he is also their #2 rusher with 784 yards and 10 TDs on the ground for 2021.
The Eagles' passing defense is rated 23rd overall and is tied for 31st in completion percentage. BUT 8th in YPA and 1st in YPC. You have to dink and dunk to move the ball on them and Darius Slay will pick your pocket. Will Brady be patient?
Eagles Pass D
Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Jordan Howard, and the rookie Kenneth Gainwell AND their backups represent the best rushing attack in the NFL. Oh, and QB Jalen Hurts is their #1 producer. Yes, the Eagles will be running the ball.
