TAMPA, FLORIDA - SEPTEMBER 25: D'Andre Swift #0 of the Philadelphia Eagles rushes during the first quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on September 25, 2023 in Tampa, Florida.

The Eagles season to this point has been a disappointment. There is no getting around that. You don’t start 10-1, finish with only 11 wins, and act like things are okay. The Eagles have been a disaster since the calendar turned to December. 1-5, with one of the worst defenses in the league. And even the offense has underperformed in that time.

That said, they are still in the playoffs. And as they have told us 100 times, their record is 0-0 now. It is a new season, a fresh start, and every other cliche they have thrown at us. As annoying as them spamming that message is, they are partly correct. They could still turn things around and go on a run. In which case, all would be forgiven. No one will remember them losing to the Cardinals if they win a Super Bowl.

But first, they have to get through the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Probably the most favorable matchup they could have gotten. The Bucs snuck in because they play in the NFC South. Their 9 wins are the fewest among the playoff teams. But they did go 5-1 over their final 6 games. And their defense gave up the 2nd fewest points. The polar opposite of the Eagles since December.

They also offer up some disadvantages for the Eagles. They love to Blitz, and the Eagles have proven they can’t handle the blitz. They have two 1000-yard WRs, and the Eagles have one of the worst secondaries in the league. Even with the Bucs being the worst team on paper in the playoffs, the Eagles will have their hands full trying to get past them. And now they will be without AJ Brown. So these 7 Eagles players will need to step up on Monday Night.

Here are the 7 most important Eagles players for Monday Night:
