If there was ever a player in the NFL for whom an opponent’s hot streak would not matter, it would be Brady. Even his detractors can’t deny that he’s unflappable under pressure. He’s also undefeated against the person with the greatest NFL hot streak of all time: Father Time.
Age and deterioration have caught up to every NFL player who has ever played the game. Brady, somehow, has avoided that pitfall.
This is not to say that Philly can’t pull off a win on Thursday Night Football once again. It’s just an acknowledgment of how good Brady and the Buccaneers really are. Their one hiccup this season came against a
The Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) have had success on Thursday Night Football over the past few seasons, and that’s putting it lightly. The Eagles have absolutely crushed it on Thursdays, which is somewhat surprising considering just how tough that night tends to be for most NFL teams.
The issue for Philly this week is that the Eagles are about to run into one of the best teams in football. Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-1) head into town, and they’re looking to prove they should not be taken lightly.
Even as the reigning Super Bowl Champions. Even without Rob Gronkowski.
There’s no doubt Thursday night has been the Eagles’ good luck charm

Tampa Bay is easily one of the top teams in not just the NFC but in the NFL as a whole, but Philadelphia does have undeniable magic heading into Thursday night’s matchup. Fox Sports highlighted an impressive stat on Twitter ahead of the game. The Eagles are 6-0 on Thursday Night Football over their past six games.
It’s a streak that goes back all the way to the 2016 season. The streak was so notable that former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was once asked why Thursday night was such a winner for Philadelphia. He joked that his wife would make fun of him for making things look easy on Thursdays while they became much harder on Sundays.
“Honestly, I make light of it, but my wife tells me all the time that you can put a game plan together in a day and go win a game on Thursday night,” Pederson told NBC Sports in October 2020. “Why can’t you do that for a Sunday game, right? So she kind of kids me a little bit that way.”
“But I do think that there’s some validity, so to speak, to keeping it simple,” Pederson said. “To going back to some of your training camp-type plays. Utilizing all your personnel. And a lot of it, too, falls on the players. It’s more of a narrow focus, a laser focus for a couple of days. Focusing in on the game plan. It’s all about mental preparation over the physical.”
The problem for Philadelphia: The streak is misleading

Context is always key when examining statistics. It’s easy to cherry-pick stats that lean one way or the other, so it’s always worth digging in a level deeper in order to find the real story.
Yes, it’s true that Philly has been stellar on TNF. Eagles fans can certainly lean into that hope as Tampa Bay invades Lincoln Financial Field.
A deep dive into the streak gives it less power, though.
Three of the Eagles’ wins have come against the New York Giants (1-4). On one …read more
