America demolishes Eagles after wild-card implosion against Buccaneers
The defending NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles did their level best to make their wild-card playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers look like a preseason game. Between the horrible schemes on offense and defense, the poor execution on both sides of the ball, the miserable coverage and tackling on defense, and the complete lack of a blitz plan on offense against a Bucs defense that had blitzed at the third-highest rate in the regular season (40.1% behind only the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants), head coach Nick Sirianni, offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia were both singularly and collectively unprepared for what became a 32-9 rout at the hands of the Bucs.
