The Buccaneers are still looking for their first win of the season and now a MRSA outbreak has happened in the locker room. Three of the Buccaneers players already have MRSA. The Eagles are coming to town and their quarterback position is still up in the air. Michael Vick is going to be a game time decision. He suffered a hamstring injury last week, but he was able to practice on Friday and may be able to suit up on Sunday.

Eagles Player to Watch: LeSean McCoy
Shady is leading the NFL with 514 rushing yards. On the season, he has 514 rushing yards on 98 carries for 3 touchdowns. He also has 13 receptions for 186 yards. He is a threat any time he touches the football and Chip Kelly is getting him the ball in space so that he can make plays.
Buccaneeers Player to Watch: Mike Glennon
Rookie Mike Glennon has to try and provide a spark for one of the league’s worst offenses. Glennon took over the starting duties from Josh Freeman and tossed for 193 yards and a touchdown in his first game. He also added a pair of interceptions in the 4th quarter of the game. Rookies are going to make their mistakes. Maybe Glennon has learned from those mistakes and he can rebound this week.
Matchup to Watch: Darrelle Revis vs Desean Jackson
Can Darrelle Revis stay with the speedy Desean Jackson? It will be fun to see one of the fastest receivers in the game against one of the top corners in the game. Who will come out on top in this matchup? Revis could lock Jackson down for most of the game, but if Jackson gets loose for one huge play, he will have 130 yards and a touchdown in a hurry.
The Eagles are looking to pull off the victory without Michael Vick and the Buccaneers are still looking for their first win of the season. I think the Eagles still have a really explosive offense, even with Nick Foles running the show and the Buccaneers don’t have the offense to keep up with the Eagles. The Eagles defense should be able to confuse rookie QB Mike Glennon also.
Eagles 34, Buccaneers 13
