Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27  Philadelphia Eagles 21 Sunday 16 September 2018        at Raymond James Stadium
if the Week 1 victory in New Orleans surprised the NFL in general, this one totally stunned them.  Another 400- yard performance by Ryan Fitzpatrick who became only the second QB in NFL history to throw four TD passes in each of the first two games of the season.  Two big plays to Desean Jackson and OJ Howard were the hlghlights but the defense did its part despite playing with rookies everywhere in the secondary.
