Thursday Night Football: Buccaneers at Eagles (7:20 CT) —Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

Week 6 of the NFL season is here, and I don’t know about you, but this is flying by for me. I can’t believe we’re this far into the season already. Tom Brady, fresh off a five-touchdown performance against the lowly Dolphins, will bring his 4-1 Buccaneers into Philadelphia for a meeting with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles under the lights on Thursday Night Football.

It’s been rough sailing for the Eagles in the first month-plus of the 2021 season, and the last primetime performance they offered us was not very good when the Cowboys throttled them on Monday Night Football in Week 3. Hurts was picked off twice, and the Eagles gave up 41 points to Dallas in a 41-21 MNF beatdown. So let’s hope they have a better showing in the tank this week against the defending Super Bowl Champions.

Oh, by the way, the NFL dropped their first playoff picture today. Here’s how we’re looking after five weeks of action. (p.s., the Bears are in there!)
