The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held on Thursday for a 28-22 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on the road. This marked the fifth win of the season for the defending Super Bowl champions, now 5-1.
Quarterback Tom Brady landed two touchdown passes, a two-yard toss to O.J. Howard and a 27-yard pass to Antonio Brown. Leonard Fournette ran two touchdowns in following impressive scoring drives. The game looked like a rout most of the night, with Tampa at one point holding a 28-7 lead.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts rallied back to tighten the score, but Philadelphia remains winless at home.
