Tom Brady has long made it known that he would like to continue playing until he is 50. For about a quarter of his 44-year season, he has shown no signs of slowing down and has an upcoming favorable matchup against the Eagles.
The Buccaneers are 4-1 right now and first in the NFC South, with much of the success on Brady’s shoulders. In his second year at Tampa, Brady leads the NFL in yards and completions so far and is second in touchdowns per pass with 15 to five games. He’s also coming off a 411-yard, five-touchdown performance in his last outing.

Brady won’t be able to count on star tight end Rob Gronkowski for the third straight game, but it might not matter. Even in Gronkowski’s prolonged absence, the Buccaneers currently rank third in both points scored and total yards. They’ll face an Eagles team that also has one of the worst defenses in the league, which should bode well for Leonard Fournette.
The Eagles are coming off a 21-18 win over Carolina, the first fourth-quarter comeback Jalen Hurts has led the Eagles in his career. Hurts delivered the ball once and fumbled once, but also scored two touchdowns on the ground.

Hurts leads the Eagles in rushing yards, an area the Eagles can lean on with tight end Dallas Goeddert on the COVID list. However, seven skill position players on the Eagles have 100 receiving yards or more this season, so Hurts likes to spread the ball.
The Eagles are looking to get back to .500 and maintain some ground in the NFC East, while Tampa is looking to extend their lead in the NFC South.
