"I think that's where we expected to be Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie ," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said after throwing for 402 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 27-21 victory over the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles."I don't know if everybody else expected us to be there," the 14th-year pro filling in for suspended starter Jameis Winston said, "but we're just going to continue to ride this momentum."Next up is a prime-time matchup next Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.Suddenly, what once looked like a potentially tough start to the season with Winston serving a three-game ban for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy is turning into one of the league's best feel-good stories.The Bucs, coming off a 5-11 finish last season, haven't made the playoffs since 2007."You can't peak too early. We have a lot of football left," receiver DeSean Jackson said. "I just know this team and this locker room is a different team than how we were last year."So are the Eagles (1-1), who fell behind on Jackson's 75-yard TD reception of the first play of the game and never fully recovered.Nick Foles threw for 334 yards and one TD without an interception, however an injury-decimated offense hurt itself with turnovers, penalties and other mistakes.The loss left Eagles coach Doug Pederson in no mood to draw comparisons to last season."I'm not going to go back and pull out old memories Youth Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys ," Pederson said. "New team, new faces. We've got our own set of circumstances now."Some things to know about the Bucs' victory over the defending Super Bowl champs:FAST STARTFitzpatrick threw for more than 400 yards and four touchdowns for the second straight week. In addition to teaming with Jackson on the first play from scrimmage, the 35-year-old quarterback connected with tight end O.J. Howard on a 75-yard scoring play in the second quarter.Chris Godwin and Mike Evans had TD catches, too, and Jackson finished with four receptions for 129 yards."It's unbelievable," Jackson said of Fitzpatrick, who thrown for 819 yards and accounted for nine TDs in two games. "He's playing out of this world right now."SLOW STARTPhiladelphia's defense yielded 271 yards passing and three touchdowns in the first half. The offense, already playing without Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery and Darren Sproles, wasn't helped by losing running back Jay Ajayi www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com , receiver Mike Wallace and left tackle Jason Peters in the first half.Nick Foles wound up throwing for 334 yards, but by the time the Eagles began to move the ball consistently they trailed 27-7."A lot of self-inflicted wounds," Pederson said of his team's sloppy play early."Guys step up all the time and that's what we did," Foles said. "We gave ourselves an opportunity to win this game."NO TIME TO PANICFoles, who stepped in for Wentz after the Eagles lost their starting quarterback to injury late last season, tried to put the loss and the team's offensive woes in perspective."We didn't win every single game last year. I think people forget that," Foles said. "There's a lot of expectations for us, but we can't put that kind of pressure on ourselves."Nelson Agholor's 2-yard TD reception trimmed Philadelphia's deficit to 27-21 with 2:46 remaining."We had our shots. I just feel like if we had got that ball back one more time, we would have a chance to try to win it," Peters said. "But we were pinned back there with 20 seconds left and we didn't have a lot of options."THE LAST TIMEThe Bucs are 2-0 for only the second time since 2005 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens T-Shirt , when they went on to finish 11-5. They also won their first two on the way to a 10-6 record in 2010, but did not earn a playoff berth. For those that don’t have a dog in the fight - which is the majority of the people who will read this since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t playing - there are a few ways to keep yourself emotionally invested in the game. Of course, there’s the popular square game where if the scores match up to the numbers you have, you win cash. There’s DFS sites like FanDuel and Draft Kings where you can enter fantasy lineups and compete against hundreds of thousands of people.Then, there’s prop bets.Those, I must say, are the most fun. There’s the staples like “Will the coin toss be heads or tails”, the over/under on the National Anthem, or what color the Gatorade will be that is dumped on the head coach of the winning team.But it goes so much deeper than that. Here are a few of my favorites as found over at My Bookie;Number of times Tony Romo says “Oh, Jim - I don’t know Jim” - Over/Under 2.5Number of times Tom Brady’s exact age (41) is mentioned in the broadcast - Over/Under 2.5Which commercial will air first - Doritos (-200) or Pringles (+140)Will Andre 3000 join Big Boi on stage during halftime? - Yes (+100) or No (-140)First song played by Maroon 5? (Lots of songs listed here)On top of all those Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , you can bet over/unders on passing yards, touchdowns, completions, etc for the game or by quarter for each quarterback. Same goes for running backs and receivers.You can bet on the player to score the first touchdown for Patriots, the Rams, and the game as a whole. You can bet on the player to score the last touchdown. There’s millions of props lined up for every player, every position, everything you can think of.Like, for instance;Color of Tony Romo’s Tie (If prominent) - Blue is the favorite at -130, while brown is at +1200Color of Jim Nantz’s Tie (if prominent) - Purple site at +100 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Womens Hoodie , Red +250, Brown or Yellow at +700The quarter where Romo gets his first play prediction correct - 1st (-350), 2nd (+350), 3rd (+1400), or 4th (+1300)All of these are just another fun way to get yourself invested in the game and have a rooting interest. No one is saying spend hundreds of dollars. But hey - give yourself $25 and take some fun little prop bets and see if you come out of Super Bowl Sunday a winner!
