Bucs Travel to Philly: Week Five Preview and Pick

Donovan McNabb is back for the Eagles, but really they won’t need him here, as the Eagles are way better than the terrible Bucs, who are going again with Josh Johnson at QB. Look for plenty of heat from the Eagles D, and for the Eagles to with rather ease dispatch the Buccaneers. If the Bucs are going to pull off the upset, they are going to have to protect Johnson, which is asking a lot against the tough Eagles D, and they also are going to need to find a way to run the ball, which might come down to a lot of Derrick Ward.

Johnson is also going to have to make some plays, and he’s going to have to get the ball to Antonio Bryant and Mark Clayton, which won’t be easy vs the Eagles secondary. Philly on offense will have a steady back and forth of run and pass, and one way to get them out of their tempo will be to pressure McNabb. I don’t think they can do it. Expect a rather long and ugly day for the Bucs.
