Jalen Hurts has undeniably been one of the most talked-about MVP contenders this season. Despite carrying the reputation of an NFC defending champion and being touted as a front-runner this year, Hurts’s projected passing yards for tonight stand at 235.5. Surprisingly, he hasn’t surpassed the 200-yard mark this season. Against the Minnesota Vikings, the Eagles took a ground-heavy approach, running the football over 40 times to rack up significant yardage.

But tonight, things might take a turn.

Hurts is known for defying the odds, and he’s not the only Eagle eyeing a stellar performance. Keep an eye on AJ Brown. The whispers suggest that Brown could be a primary target tonight, as the Eagles’ aerial assault aims to challenge the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ defense. Recent betting odds reveal intriguing numbers for Brown. A touchdown prop for him combined with over 73.5 receiving yards stands at a +218 tonight.

DeVonta Smith is a receiver who shows up and gets his without much fuss. However, when Brown isn’t as involved as he’d liked to be, the team hears about it. Brown’s frustration will culminate in multiple passes thrown his way. Such instances can be challenging for team dynamics, especially for superstar wide receivers. They need to get Brown a touchdown soon, or the Browns’ coaching staff won’t hear the end of it. A bet for Brown to score a touchdown and accumulate not-so-daunting yardage is priced nicely.

There’s a strong belief that Brown will be the star to watch on Monday Night Football. The Eagles seem ready to strike, and football enthusiasts should brace themselves for a captivating showdown tonight.
