Both Tampa Bay and Philadelphia are 4-5 going into this Week 11 matchup on Sunday. But one team has quarterback issues, and it isn't the one with the rookie under center.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -6 -105 at Pinnacle
The NFL odds for this game opened up at -6 for the Eagles at home, but that line has since moved to -5.5 as they have questions about who will start at quarterback. The Buccaneers have won two of their last three and while they're still inconsistent, they've played better as the season has gone on from rookie QB Jameis Winston right down the line. The Eagles have lost two of their last three and are just as inconsistent as the Bucs, but with more talent on the roster. Now, they might have to switch quarterbacks and it'll be fascinating to see what happens if they do.

Injuries
The Buccaneers probably won't have TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins this week as he still has a shoulder injury and hasn't been cleared for contact since getting hurt in Week 2. WR Vincent Jackson has been out since Week 7 with a knee injury, and that means the pressure of the passing game falls on Winston and WR Mike Evans, who has also missed time this season.

For the Eagles, QB Sam Bradford hasn't cleared concussion protocol, but he also has a separated shoulder. Even though head coach Chip Kelly said he hasn't been ruled out yet, it would be a shock if Bradford played, which means Mark Sanchez will probably start for Philadelphia. This is probably why there is a line out despite Bradford not being technically listed as “out”. RB Ryan Mathews also has a concussion, while T Jason Peters (back) and LB Connor Barwin (quadriceps) also didn't practice for the Eagles this week.

 

Trends
The Bucs are 5-4 ATS this season, but they're a stellar 3-1 ATS on the road. The Eagles are 4-5 ATS overall this season, and they're 2-2 ATS at home. The total has bumped up from 45 to 45.5, and the Eagles have gone under seven times this season, while the Bucs have gone over five times.

The Eagles are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings with Tampa Bay since 2000, but the Bucs are 4-5 SU and 4-4 ATS in nine trips to the City of Brotherly Love.
