The Eagles are an 8 1/2-point underdog this Sunday in Tampa when they face the Bucs in the Wild Card.

And they have several perhaps under-appreciated advantages:

A great offensive line.

Which has led to the best running game in the NFL in the second half of the season.

A quarterback who can run like no other and passes well enough to win.

And there’s one other:

Tom Brady’s memory, and Super Bowl 52 and the Philly Special.

He was wearing the Patriots uni, and it was a crushing 41-33 defeat even though the Pats ran and passed for more than 500 yards.

And he’ll also remember the way the Birds were in his grill all day.

That’s another advantage the Eagles will have Sunday.

The Buccaneers’ injured starters are trickling back into the lineup.

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that he expected running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring), linebacker Shaquil Barrett (knee) and edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) to play Sunday.
