Already played him once and the Eagles have made major adjustments since then and the Bucs have major injury issues. Gannon can not sit back or Brady will tear him apart no matter what receivers are out there.

The only major concern I have is that the Bucs are very good against the run Vita Vea and Devon White are STUDS.

If the Eagles play turnover free, they can play with most teams. Winning the LOS will be key and Jalen will have to make some big plays in the passing game.

Brady is likely to destroy the Eagles blitz. They have to be aggressive on D agreed, but Brady has sliced up a lot better Ds than the Eagles. I just have zero confidence that Gannon will put together a scheme with the limited talent that he has that will be effective

Brady still has Gronk & Evans

Ideal would be for the Eagles to have success running the ball to shorten the game, but as you mentioned they have studs on the D Line

Eagles activate all of the regulars from the COVID list

Jason Huntley added to the active roster, so hopefully he will play and return kicks

However, our playoff chances are even worse now, JJAW put on injured reserve

TB isn't an insurmountable juggernaut but hard to see a path to victory. TB is 2nd in points for/5th points against, Brady, talent on D, home, etc.

Could use the run game in theory to go on long sustained drives and keep the ball out of BRady's hands. Get a turnover or two. maybe.

If the Eagles somehow get a comfortable lead, they need to keep their foot on the gas. Basically, don't play passive. Hoping your defense will stop Brady is a disaster, waiting to happen.

If they can get that run game going, control the clock somehow and keep Brady off the field they have a shot.

Shut down Fournette. Brady is gonna do his thing no matter if you rush 4-6,8,or 10
