There aren't many reasons left to watch the Eagles, but

Nick Foles


Bryce Brown

certainly qualify as the two best.

The rookie quarterback and running back will start again when the Birds travel to Tampa, Fla., to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. Foles has already been tabbed the starter for the rest of the season, and Brown will fill in for the injured LeSean McCoy (concussion).

Foles played better last week against the Cowboys than he did in his previous two starts. He has four games to show Eagles brass that he should be next season's starter. Brown has dazzled, but three fumbles in two games have diluted some of the buzz. Still, he has been a late-season surprise.

Before the season, many penciled in a win over the Bucs in Week 14. Former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano has Tampa Bay playing with some pride, and at this point, playing for the playoffs.

The Bucs have lost two in a row, but they're 6-6 and one of four NFC teams a game behind the 7-5 Seahawks for the last playoff spot. All their wins are against teams with losing records, and all their losses - except for the Saints - have come against teams with winning marks.

After losing eight straight, the lame duck Andy Reid will take a win any way he can.
