Thanks to an injury suffered last week, the Philadelphia Eagles will head into their week six game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a backup quarterback leading the way. According to ESPN on Oct. 12, Michael Vick will sit out this game with an injured hamstring and Nick Foles will get the start. Here is a look at the big game this afternoon and how you can see the Eagles vs. Buccaneers live stream online.
Tampa Bay is having quarterback difficulties as well, benching and then releasing their starting quarterback Josh Freeman while promoting rookie Mike Glennon to take his place. As a result, they rank dead last in the NFL in passing, which hurts running back Doug Martin and their 18th ranked rushing offense. They have yet to win a game, and will hope that the Eagles, without Vick, will give them a chance to break that.
While Vick won’t be starting, Foles was the starter for most of last season. While he has not gained much experience in Chip Kelly’s new offensive scheme, he is familiar with his teammates and should be able to manage the game. This will lie on the shoulders of the NFL’s leading rusher LeSean McCoy.
Philadelphia is favored over Tampa Bay by one.
