STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Tampa Bay's 2002 Super Bowl championship team will be honored at halftime. S Ronde Barber is only player from that team remaining on roster. His fourth-quarter interception and 92-yard return for touchdown sealed club's victory over Eagles in that season's NFC title game. In past four games against Philadelphia, 16-year veteran has three interceptions and returned all of them for TDs. ... With Michael Vick sidelined by concussion, Philadelphia coach Andy Reid has named Nick Foles as starting quarterback for rest of season. With 793 yards passing in four games, Foles has thrown for most yards by Eagles rookie since Donovan McNabb threw for 948 in 1999. ... With LeSean McCoy sitting out past two weeks because of a concussion, Bryce Brown started at running back, and joins Gary Brown as only players since 1970 to rush for 150-plus yards in each of first two starts. ... Bucs rookie Doug Martin third in NFL in rushing with 1,106 yards. He's second in yards from scrimmage with 1,480, a club rookie record. Martin 73 yards shy of breaking Cadillac Williams' record for most rushing yards by rookie. Since running for 251 yards and four touchdowns at Oakland on Nov. 4, Martin has been held to 68 or fewer on ground three of past four weeks. ... Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman has been instrumental in Bucs overcoming 1-3 start to climb back into playoff contention. He's thrown for 18 touchdowns vs. four interceptions in past eight games. ... Tampa Bay has league's No. 1 rush defense, allowing 82.3 yards per game. On flip side, Bucs 32nd against pass, yielding league-high 309.4 per game.
