The Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) will host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-1) for a Thursday Night Football matchup in Week 6.

Last Sunday wasn’t the greatest outing for the Eagles, but the defense had one of their best games this season and the offense finally got some momentum in the third quarter. As a complete team, they squeaked out a win over Carolina, their first since Week 1. The Buccaneers, however, won decisively against the Dolphins last Sunday, 45-17. Tampa Bay has one of the greatest QBs of all time leading the offense, and a defense that’s super aggressive, so they’ll be a big test for the young Eagles team on Thursday.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.

History Lesson

The Eagles barely lead the all-time series between these teams, 8-7, and the Buccaneers have won the past two meetings. The last time they faced each other was in early-September 2018, with Tampa Bay getting a home win, 27-17, and the last time they played each other in Philly was back in 2015. A lot has changed for both teams since then.
