PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Tampa Bay's outstanding defense again couldn't overcome its inept offense.
The Bucs are OK on defense. When you face a dominant offensive player (like today) you'll have some lapses. But the Bucs need lots of work on offense. If Tampa Bay and Gruden are going to go anywhere, they need to fix the offense.
Question on the Eagles: Are they overlooked in terms of elite defenses?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
The Eagles are 11-0 after a loss since losing back-to-back games in Week 2 and 3 of the 2000 season. They are 10-3 after a bye since 1989. ... Gramatica has missed 5 of 14 field goals longer than 30 yards. ... Alstott had 14 yards rushing, a week after getting 126 against the Browns. ... McNabb has thrown just two interceptions in his last 197 attempts.
