The beat-up Bucs won their third game as they overcame a short week and typically hostile crowd in Philadelphia to take down the Eagles 28-22.  The running game was more utilised with Leonard Fournette scoring twice.  The defense was only really beaten on two long pass interference calls and kept the mobile Jalen Hurts under control for most of the night.
