Buccaneers-Eagles Preview: Ron Jaworski's game prediction, players to watch

PHILADLEPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles host the defending champ Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday night with the Birds seeking their second upset win in four days.

The Eagles are a seven-point home underdog against Tom Brady and company despite a 21-18 win over the then-3-1 Panthers on Sunday. Philadelphia was a three-point underdog in that game.


The Eagles' defense came alive in Carolina with three sacks and three interceptions, buying the offense enough time to wake from its doldrums and score two late touchdowns, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Tampa Bay is coming off a 45-17 rout of Miami, so we asked Ron Jaworski to catch us up on how the Birds could pull off the miracle at home.

Watch Jaws go three deep on the Tampa Bay-Philly matchup in the video above.
