Playing in the Monday Night Football time slot on Wild Card Weekend puts plenty of extra eyes on this week's Philadelphia Eagles vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup. The 8:15 p.m. kickoff time means fans across the country will have had time to tune in to catch some of the pregame buildup as well.
One moment that never fails to give me chills before a big game is the singing of the National Anthem, and it's always fun to see who the home teams bring out to do the honors for these playoff games.
The Buccaneers get the choice for this one, and the singer themselves has leaked the information.
Huntley Reveals Himself as Eagles-Buccaneers National Anthem Singer
Huntley is singing the national anthem for the Buccaneers vs. Eagles WIld Card matchup. Nothing official has come out from the Buccaneers, but Huntley himself quietly made the announcement on X on Thursday afternoon.
Huntley was the winner of season 24 of The Voice, and as a native of Spring Hill, Florida (about an hour from Raymond James Stadium), he's a natural choice for the Bucs' home playoff game.
The halftime show entertainment hasn't been announced yet, but we can expect that to be another act with home-town ties.
Of course, the big show is obviously the entertainment between the whistles. And this game projects as one of the most exciting of the week. Oddsmakers expect a close matchup, with the Eagles sitting as only 3-point favorites in a game with a 43.5-point over/under.
