The Tampa Bay Buccanners, riding on two touchdowns by running back Leonard Fournette, defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 28-22 on Thursday night. With the win, Tom Brady and company are on a three-match winning streak. 

After being dominated by the Bucs for the first three quarters, Philadelphia responded with a 7-0 in the fourth. But the effort fell short. When Leonard Fournette scored on a 1-yard run early in the third for a 28-7 lead, the Buccaneers wrapped a 79-yard scoring drive. A that point, the Eagles had 77 total yards.

The Eagles have now lost four of their last five games. 

Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell had only 69 carries over the first five games. The duo ran the ball on just 22.5% of Philadelphia’s offensive plays. Hurts had 43 rushes himself. Some were scrambles but many are designed runs or run-pass options.

The numbers didn’t get any better against Tampa Bay. Sanders had five carries through three quarters, Gainwell none.

Philly fans were still cheering Sanders for his small rush when he got the ball again on the next play — and lost 2 yards. The Eagles had 99 yards of total offense over the first three quarters. As for Brady, well, the seven-time Super Bowl champion went 11-for-12 for 121 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter alone.

The Eagles gave up points on the first drive of the game for the fifth time in six games. Jake Elliott missed a 46-yard field goal when the Eagles still had a pulse. The Eagles stopped Tampa Bay on a drive in the second quarter (a potential interception was overturned on review) and forced the Buccaneers to punt — and Hurts gave it right back when an underthrown ball was intercepted by Jamel Dean.

Hurts, though, kept the Eagles in the game with his legs and his 1-yard run and 2-point conversion toss late in the fourth made it 28-22.

Sirianni has yet to win a home game in three tries and with straight road games ahead, he won’t get another chance until Nov. 7 against the Chargers.

At this rate, by the time the Eagles come home, their season could be about over.

Earlier in the game, Tampa Bay cornerback Richard Sherman was ruled out with a hamstring injury. The Buccaneers were already without linebacker Lavonte David (ankle) and safety Antoine Winfield (concussion).

Sherman, a three-time All-Pro cornerback who has been dealing with offseason legal issues, walked off the field without his helmet during an Eagles scoring drive in the first quarter.
