Who the experts are taking in Bucs vs. Eagles

by Moxieplay

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to defend a 2-0 record, but based on the way experts are picking this week, it may not seem like it.

Pundits and writers have released their Week 3 picks for the NFL slate this weekend, and Tampa Bay isn’t favored to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night football by most people’s metrics. The Bucs faced a similar situation in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, but the team won that game 20-17. Now, the team seeks to prove the doubters wrong again and get a win against the defending NFC champions at home.

Here is how experts predicted Monday’s game will go:

Bill Bender: Eagles 27, Bucs 17

The Buccaneers are off to a surprising 2-0 start with Baker Mayfield, who has a 69.1% completion percentage and has not thrown an interception. The Eagles, however, had extra rest coming off a Thursday Night Football victory. Philadelphia has just four sacks through two weeks. Still, Jalen Hurts should be even better with the emergence of D’Andre Swift in the backfield. Philadelphia keeps it rolling on the Monday Night Football spotlight.

The Eagles led predictions 38-1, so its safe to say that the Birds are heavily favored. Despite this, though, it should be a close matchup between the teams on paper and could be a defining game for the NFC early on this year.
