(AP) – Tom Brady will lead the defending Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, against Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in a prime-time matchup Thursday night.
The 44-year-old Brady injured his throwing hand last Sunday during his first career 400-yard, five-TD game and expects to be fine to play.
The Eagles are coming off a comeback win at Carolina but are still seeking their first home win under new coach Nick Sirianni. Hurts is facing the league’s worst pass defense that’s missing several key players, including linebacker Lavonte David.
The Bucs have won the last two meetings but the Eagles have won seven in a row on Thursdays.
