Eagles vs. Buccaneers final score, results: Buccaneers cruise past Eagles, advances to NFC divisional round

By | January 16, 2022

The Buccaneers dominated the Eagles and will advance to the NFC divisional round for the second consecutive year. 

With the 31-15 win against Philadelphia, the defending Super Bowl champions will host the divisional round against their next opponent, which they will find out after the completion of the Rams-Cardinals wild-card game on Monday. 

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady completed 29 of 37 passes for 271 yards with two touchdowns. He helped Tampa Bay secure an early lead with a touchdown on the first drive of the game and stayed on the field throughout the fourth quarter despite the lead. 

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, on the other hand, had a rough bout against the Buccaneers’ defense. He completed 23 of 43 passes for 258 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The first pick came during Philadelphia’s final scoring opportunity of the first half. Hurts threw a pass intended for wide receiver DeVonta Smith in the end zone, but safety Mike Edwards made the interception to give Tampa Bay possession in the final minute of the half.
