In Week 2 of the 2018 NFL Season O. J. Howard Jersey ,have faced off eighteen times (regular and post-season) in their history with the Eagles holding a 10-8 advantage over the Bucs currently.The last time the two teams faced off, Tampa Bay came away with a 45-17 victory over the Eagles on the road in November of the 2015 season.In fact, the road team has won the last three meetings between the two teams dating back to 2012.Leading up to the game, James Yarcho and I published a series of game previews with special guests joining us to assist us as we try to cover every angle of the match-up.LOCKED ON BUCS / LOCKED ON EAGLES CROSSOVER EPISODEThe first preview episode features a crossover with Louie DiBiase of the Locked on Eagles Podcast. Together, James Yarcho and DiBiase shed some light as to how each side views their upcoming opponent and make the first score predictions of the week.INJURY UPDATES, LISTENER VOICEMAILS AND BOLD PREDICTIONS WITH BRENT ALLENThe second preview of the week features injury updates as both the Buccaneers and Eagles release their first official injury reports of the week.News of Vernon Hargreaves III heading to the injury reserve broke early, and before the day was over we learned Jason Pierre-Paul, Brent Grimes and Vita Vea were held out of practice while offensive linemen Donovan Smith and Caleb Benenoch were limited participants.The Eagles saw Alshon Jeffery and Carson Wentz listed as limited participants as was running back Darren Sproles. Brent and David discuss the possibilities of facing the defending Super Bowl Champions without three key playmakers, and Brent makes his first bold predictions of the week as well as trying his hand at predicting the winner.Dirk Koetter commits to Ryan Fitzpatrick When the Buccaneers took the field for their first official training camp practice on Thursday morning, it was obvious that there won’t be a quarterback controversy while Jameis Winston sits out for the first three games of the season.35-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick Authentic Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , as expected, got reps with the first team offense. Ryan Griffin, who has yet to see action in an NFL regular season game, got work with the second team. Winston, who can practice and play in the preseason before his suspension kicks in, mixed in with all three groups. After practice, head coach Dirk Koetter gave a very straightforward assessment of the quarterback situation, saying that Fitzpatrick will start and it would take “something that I can’t foresee right now” for Griffin to unseat him.Ever since the re-signing of Fitzpatrick, it was assumed that he would be the No. 2 behind Winston. Even still, there has been questions Youth Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey , at least among the fan base, about Griffin potentially taking that role if he has a strong preseason. Koetter shot that down, but was very complimentary of the 28-year-old:Griffin seemed to have a chance at winning the backup job during the 2017 preseason before going down with a shoulder injury. Koetter referred to him as a “veteran quarterback” on Thursday, which seems strange for someone who hasn’t taken a snap in the regular season. But it does make sense, considering the Tulane product has spent the last three seasons with the Bucs, all under the offensive direction of Koetter.Despite it already seeming like a foregone conclusion prior to Thursday, it was significant for Koetter to get this out of the way early. It’s already complicated enough to figure out how to split first team reps between two quarterbacks, so not having to entertain the idea of a third is a positive. Plus, it knocks out any possible distractions that can come with a quarterback controversy. The Bucs certainly have plenty of distractions to worry about already.
