Troy Aikman likely knew this Bucs and Eagles wild card game was not going to be competitive and he was correct.
During the blowout in the second half, Joe Buck brought up the 49ers and Cowboys game that would be coming up next. Aikman seemed rather unhappy he was not able to call that game instead.
It took garbage for the Eagles to finally get on the board and make the score respectable.
Even still, you cannot help but to think Aikman was really hoping to call a game for his former team in a mega matchup with the 49ers in the playoffs, something that hasn’t happened in over 20 years for these historic franchises.
