The Eagles try to snap an eight-game losing streak against the Buccaneers in Week 14.


Philadelphia visits the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday as the Eagles look to climb out of the cellar in the NFC. After a 3-1 start, Philadelphia now finds itself at 3-9 with the worst point differential in the conference. They will try to get back on track against a Tampa Bay team that is fighting for the playoffs.

The Eagles let a second-half lead slip away last week against division rival Dallas. Bryce Brown rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns, while rookie quarterback Nick Foles completed 22 of 34 for 251 yards and a score in a losing effort. Brown may be called on once more against the Bucs as starting running back LeSean McCoy recovers from a concussion.

Tampa Bay has lost two straight at a critical point in the season. The Buccaneers are now tied with three other teams at 6-6, one game behind the Seattle Seahawks for the final playoff spot. Tampa Bay is hoping to have star wide receiver Vincent Jackson healthy as he battles a calf injury.

Game time, TV schedule: 1 p.m. ET, FOX
