Eagles vs. Buccaneers: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Tampa Bay, Philadelphia each trying to grab a win.


Sunday's NFC South showdown in Tampa Bay is between two teams trying to snap bad streaks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the game at 6-6 with a two-game losing streak. After reeling off five wins in six games, the Bucs fell to the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos the last two weeks.

But the Bucs' two-game losing streak is nothing compared to what the Philadelphia Eagles are going through. The Eagles, who very well could have a complete franchise overhaul this offseason, are in the midst of an eight-game losing streak. Philly is 3-9 this season.

Tampa Bay has featured a balanced offensive attack this season. Josh Freeman has completed 56 percent of his passes for 3,003 yards and 23 touchdowns. He's thrown eight interceptions. The running game has been charged by rookie Doug Martin, who has 1,106 yards and nine touchdowns this season. He hasn't been effective as of late, though, rushing for 56 or fewer yards in each of the last two games.

The Eagles haven't really had any leader in any department this season. After replacing Michael Vick, Nick Foles will be the starting quarterback Sunday. He's thrown two touchdowns and three interceptions in four games this year. LeSean McCoy is the team's leading rusher with 750 yards, but he hasn't played since Week 11 because of a concussion.

Sunday's game is set for a 1 p.m. kickoff. The game will air on FOX.
