Away: Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles are off to a blazing start this season with a perfect 2-0 record, marking the second consecutive year they’ve achieved this impressive feat. Leading the charge is their dynamic quarterback, Jalen Hurts, who put on a remarkable performance in Week 2, accounting for three touchdowns – two on the ground and one through the air.
Hurts has already amassed nine games with two or more rushing touchdowns, placing him just behind Cam Newton in the all-time rankings. Additionally, he’s tied with Newton for the most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in their first 50 career games, boasting 28 in just 47 games. In his last regular-season meeting with the Bucs, Hurts showcased his dual-threat abilities with three touchdowns.
Running back D’Andre Swift is making waves too, rushing for a career-high 175 yards in Week 2, a feat not seen by a Philadelphia running back since LeSean McCoy‘s impressive 217-yard performance in 2013.
Wide receiver Devonta Smith is another player to watch, as he recorded 131 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 2, marking his eighth game with over 100 receiving yards.
The explosive A.J. Brown, who had a touchdown catch in his only previous game against Tampa Bay, is eager to make his mark on Monday Night Football.
On the defensive side of the ball, Josh Sweat is on a tear with 30 career sacks, including six forced fumbles in his impressive career. Fletcher Cox, a stalwart in the Eagles’ defensive line, recorded his 14th career fumble recovery in the last game. Keep an eye on rookie Jalen Carter, who has been consistently disruptive with tackles for loss in his first few NFL games.
In the secondary, cornerback Darius Slay aims to extend his streak of pass deflections, having notched 12 in his past seven primetime games.

Home: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been nothing short of spectacular in the early stages of the season. Quarterback Baker Mayfield showcased his prowess in Week 2, completing 76.5% of his passes for 317 yards and a touchdown, boasting a passer rating of 114.5. Mayfield’s efficiency is a testament to his 11th career game with over 300 passing yards. In his only previous start against Philadelphia, he threw for 204 yards and an 86.2 passer rating.
Rachaad White, a versatile threat in the Buccaneers’ arsenal, had a stellar Week 2 performance, recording over 100 scrimmage yards and his second career rushing touchdown.
Wide receiver Mike Evans was nothing short of electrifying, racking up 171 receiving yards and a touchdown, marking his eighth game with over 170 receiving yards. He’s the only player in the league with six or more receptions and a touchdown catch in each of the first two weeks.
Chris Godwin boasts the longest active streak of games with five or more receptions, currently at 16 games, and is hungry for more success on Monday Night Football.
Tight end Cade Otton is also a reliable target for Mayfield, as he tied his career high with six catches in the previous game.
The Buccaneers’ defense is just as formidable as their offense, with standout players like Lavonte David and Devin White consistently making their presence felt on Monday Night Football. Shaquil Barrett had an impressive Week 2 with a sack and his first career interception returned for a touchdown.
