Eagles-Buccaneers scouting report from Ray Didinger

Ronald Martinez

The Eagles will look to avoid their ninth consecutive loss on Sunday against the Buccaneers.

The Philadelphia Eagles visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, and Ray Didinger at CSNPhilly gives fans a great breakdown of the matchup. The Tampa Bay defense is No. 1 against the run this season, but 32nd against the pass. But Didinger says that favoring the pass game would be a mistake:

"[Nick] Foles clearly performed better the last two games when the play-calling was more balanced (52 runs, 55 passes). His worst game was the first one in which the coaches called 50 passes to just 21 runs. Foles was far more comfortable -- and the line much better -- in the last two games when the defense was worried about [Bryce] Brown gashing them on the ground.

The key to running the ball on the Bucs is controlling the nose tackle Roy Miller. That will be the responsibility of center Dallas Reynolds."

Didinger goes on to analyze the Buccaneer offense, and compares the special teams and intangibles for both squads. Click here to read the full article and get Didinger's prediction.
