A 28-22 win over the Eagles wasn't as close as the score suggests, as Tampa Bay continues to roll through the NFC. But, as has become a weekly ritual, the win came with the cost of a defensive back, this time newly-signed Richard Sherman. All things considered, the Buccaneers' pass defense has held up decently under the strain of so many secondary injuries; an 18th-ranked pass defense isn't anything to write home about, but it's not the total disaster it could have been. The Bucs can limp to the bye without taking too much damage from those missing corners. They'll want at least a few of those guys healthy, however, for the stretch run. --  Bryan Knowles
