One of the keys of the game I'll be watching is whether or not the Eagles will take the guvna' off Nick Foles' throwing arm. Tampa Bay's secondary is not known this year for very good coverage. So when "Shaggy" starts out in that run-base personnel package, and the Bucs start lining up 8 or 9 guys in the box, will he get the green light to audible to a sluggo route or a fly pattern?         Should be interesting to see how Shaggy can put the "pro" into pro quarterback... According to Accuscore.com, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-6) are a solid favorite with a 66% chance to beat the Philadelphia Eagles (3-9). Doug Martin is projected for 104 rushing yards and a 56% chance of having at least 1 rushing TD. In over 1,000 mainframe simulations against the Eagles, the Bucs had a 71% chance of forcing more turnovers than they commit. Positive turnover margin helps them win 79% of the time. But throw out the computer simulations if somehow Shaggy steps up and delivers a smart breakout performance. Now the smartest phans in the curriculum of Eagles advanced studies will tell you what's really happening in Tampa today.
