The season rolls on. Week 8 guarantees the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans a rivalry game. They visit Landover, Maryland to tackle the Washington Commanders and, more than likely, beat up Sam Howell. That one kicks off at 1 p.m. EST and helps us kick off an intriguing early slate on Sunday.

Before we arrive there, we have another stop to make, a prime time game on Thursday that features tw teams the Eagles know well.

The visiting team is one that the Birds have some history with. They also hosted Philly in prime time back in Week 2. The home team is one of the AFC East's best teams, one that visits Philly on November 26th in Week 12.

Who is playing Thursday Night Football in Week 8?

This week's Thursday Night Football matchup features two division winners/playoff teams from last season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit the Buffalo Bills at Highmark Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. EST/7:15 p.m. CST.

Who won the last matchup between them?

Playing in different conferences means the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't cross paths often. Unless they meet in a Super Bowl, they are only expected to play once every four seasons.

They have met 12 times prior to tonight's meeting. The Bucs lead the all-time series by an 8-4 margin. The Bills are expected to win in Week 8.
