Eagles vs. Buccaneers Final Score, Highlights, and Result: Jalen Hurts and Eagles Offense Outplay Baker Mayfield

Eagles vs. Buccaneers is the first of two Monday Night Football games during tonight's doubleheader. Follow along with PFN for the latest highlights!

The Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday Night Football game was somewhat a tale of David vs. Goliath. The Eagles, undefeated and coming off of a Super Bowl appearance, did battle the Buccaneers, who were the odds-on favorite to be the worst team in the league with Baker Mayfield under center.

With nearly 500 yards of offense for the Eagles, Philadelphia once again proved why they are still one of the most dominant teams in the NFC. This one was never close. But there were some highlights still worth checking out below.

Highlights and Analysis

Final Score: Eagles 25, Buccaneers 11

10:08 p.m. ET: The Eagles proved just how dominant they can be with their last drive of the game. They got the ball and did not give it back. A long 6+ minute drive brought the clock all the way down to double zeros. Eagles are now 3-0 for the second year in a row.

9:47 p.m. ET: The Bucs aren’t done fighting just yet. Thanks to a highlight reel catch from Mike Evans, Tampa Bay finally got something clicking and scored a TOUCHDOWN of their own. They added a two-point conversion to cut this game to 14.

9:37 p.m. ET: The Buccaneers have under 100 total yards of offense. The Eagles have over 400. That is the best way to describe what we are seeing here tonight. Eagles add a FIELD GOAL to make it a 22-point game.

Third Quarter: Eagles 22, Buccaneers 3

9:26 p.m. ET: After a three-and-out, the Bucs punted back to the Eagles. Swift continues to dominate and now has 119 rushing yards. However, Hurts is trying to keep the Buccaneers in this one throwing his second INTERCEPTION of the night. However, it was basically at Tampa Bay’s 1-yard line. So Tampa needed to try to make some space to potentially drive down the field. Unfortunately, the Eagles’ defensive line was just too much and Rachaad White couldn’t even get out of the endzone. SAFETY for Philadelphia.

9:08 p.m. ET: And the most hated play in the NFL returns. Hurts and his offensive line run the “tush push”, a play that has now become infamous and will hopefully be illegal next year. Eagles get the TOUCHDOWN and extend their lead to 17.

9:05 p.m. ET: Swift is slowly taking over this game. And, he did so with an unreal highlight play which you can see below. The Eagles are once again in the red zone looking to extend their lead to two scores. Also, shout out to the PFN social media team. Excellent tweet (X?).

Second Quarter: Eagles 10, Buccaneers 3

8:35 p.m. ET: Nevermind. Rookie Jalen Carter forced a FUMBLE and the Eagles are back on the field with 24 seconds left.

8:30 p.m. ET: The Eagles were driving and about to score. They also get the ball in the second half. So this was a massive drive if the Buccaneers wanted to remain in this game. Well, the defense did their job with a massive INTERCEPTION on Hurts. Now, with less than 45 seconds to go, Tampa Bay could go into the half tied at 10.

8:17 p.m. ET: The Bucs played with fire and got burned. This Eagles offense is simply too good. Hurts took a deep shot to Olamide Zaccheaus for a 34-yard TOUCHDOWN. The Eagles are now up 10-3. Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, when it rains, it pours. On the very next drive, Mayfield makes a bad throw in the center of the field and the Eagles get the INTERCEPTION. Eagles are now at the 37-yard line and are driving again.

8:05 p.m. ET: Think the Bucs were listening to me? As soon as I criticized the offense, they finally got something going. Although they had an excellent shot at a TD with Mike Evans, the Eagles’ defense managed to stop Mayfield and limit the Bucs to a FIELD GOAL. We have a tied game! And under 44.5 betters are enjoying the snail’s pace this one is currently moving at. 8:33 remaining in the second.

7:55 p.m. ET: At the start of the second quarter, the Buccaneers brought a ton of pressure on Hurts and forced a three-and-out. Tampa Bay now needs to find a way to get this offense going. Mayfield has completed just four passes for 44 yards.

First Quarter: Eagles 3, Buccaneers 0

7:44 p.m. ET: Eagles get the first points of the night thanks to a chip shot FIELD GOAL from Jake Elliott. The Bucs are lucky to only be down three at this point. The Eagles have not had a tough time moving the ball.

7:37 p.m. ET: Swift makes another impressive run, causing Troy Aikman to proclaim that he could play tailback with this Eagles offensive line in front of him. We have our doubts Mr. Aikman. We have our doubts.

7:33 p.m. ET: And just like that, the Buccaneers go three-and-out, punt the ball, and the Eagles are already past midfield thanks to an impressive 52-yard punt return. Tampa Bay will not beat this talented Eagles team making mistakes like that.

7:25 p.m. ET: As good as that drive was for the Eagles, it came to a surprising end as the team went for it on 4th and less than five. Kenneth Gainwell failed to convert and it is once again Buccaneers ball. Guess the Eagles can’t always rely on pushing their QB forward for a few yards.

7:20 p.m. ET: The Buccaneers start the game with the ball but fail to move it downfield. They got one first down and then needed to punt. The Eagles, meanwhile, have not had a hard time moving the ball. The first play from Jalen Hurts was a 26-yard pass to A.J. Brown. Then, followed that up by another deep ball for 16 yards. D’Andre Swift then rushed for 7.

Eagles vs. Buccaneers Picks and Predictions

All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook unless stated otherwise.

  • Spread
    Eagles -5
  • Moneyline
    Eagles -225, Buccaneers +185
  • Total
    45

Bearman: Not all 2-0s are created equal, as we saw with Washington on Sunday. Give credit to the Bucs for starting 2-0, but now the NFC champs are coming to town.

I expect Hurts and company to move the ball at ease to give the Bucs their first loss of the season.

The Eagles’ weakness this season has been their pass defense, but I don’t think Mayfield and the Bucs will be able to exploit it.

I’d also play Hurts to score a touchdown like we did last week.

Picks: Eagles -5 (-110 at DraftKings), Jalen Hurts anytime touchdown (-105 at DraftKings)

Katz: There’s a lot more optimism surrounding Rachaad White after his admittedly much-improved Week 2 performance. But let’s not forget he faced the Bears — you could probably run for 60 yards against them.

In Week 1, White carried the ball 17 times for 40 yards against a Vikings run defense that just allowed D’Andre Swift to run for 175 yards. Now, he gets an Eagles run defense that completely stuffed Alexander Mattison and Rhamondre Stevenson in each of the first two weeks.

Philadelphia has yet to allow a single run of 10+ yards. Stevenson and Mattison combined to total just 53 yards over the first two weeks.

White also has just one carry for 10+ yards on the season, and it came last week against the Bears (13 yards). Essentially, this is a two-unit play on White split into two bets that I love.

Picks: Rachaad White under 47.5 rushing yards (-115 at DraftKings) and Rachaad White longest rush under 11.5 yards (+100 at DraftKings)
