The Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers square off in a Thursday Night Football week 6 NFL contest at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look for their second road win to build on their 4-1 record. The Philadelphia Eagles look for back-to-back wins to get back to a .500 record.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won six of their last seven road games. Tom Brady is completing 66.2 percent of his passes for 1,767 yards, 15 touchdowns and two interceptions. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin have combined for 759 receiving yards and six touchdowns, while Antonio Brown has 20 receptions. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ground game is averaging 82 yards per contest, and Leonard Fournette leads the way with 251 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tampa Bay is allowing 24.4 points and 360.2 yards per game. Devin White leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 36 tackles, Shaquil Barrett has 3.5 sacks and Mike Edwards has two interceptions.

The Philadelphia Eagles have lost three straight home games. Jalen Hurts is completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,365 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins have combined for 581 receiving yards and one touchdown, while Dallas Goedert has 15 receptions.

The Buccaneers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The over is 4-1 in Buccaneers last 5 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Eagles last 10 games overall. The underdog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked terrific last week, and that may be playing into this line a bit. The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off their biggest win of the season on the road against the Panthers. While the Bucs should continue to light up the scoreboard with the best passing attack in the league, the Eagles should have success against the worst pass defense. The Buccaneers have not played great in their first two road games of the season, and the Eagles have covered five of their last seven games as a home dog. Hard to turn down a free touchdown with the home team in a quick turnaround. Give me the Eagles.
