NFL Monday Night Football: Giants Vs. BuccaneersPublished November 2, 2020 by Sol FH
The New York Giants will try to salvage their weak season but it will be tough against Brady and the Bucs. Live-action from 1:15 GMT.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a two-game win streak and will try to avoid a misstep when they meet the New York Giants, tonight, at MetLife Stadium. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady and Tampa's relentless defense looks like one of the league's top teams after crushing the Packers (38-10) and the Raiders (45-20), in the last two weeks. The Bucs are 5-2 with losses to the Bears and the Saints, but they look like they've worked the kinks out of their armor and should easily take tonight's game.
The Giants (1-6) blew a 21-10 lead against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7, and although their defense has played well, quarterback Daniel Jones and the offense have been inconsistent.
Why the Bucs Should win
To be honest, Tom Brady. The GOAT. The man that threw for four TDs and 369 yards last week against one of the top teams in the NFL. Brady has led the offense to score 83 points over the last two games, and all-star received Mike Evans has 25 receptions and an amazing six TDs. He is the favorite end-zone target for Brady, but, he doesn't even lead the offense in receiving yards. That stat goes to Scotty Miller with 365 yards. Former Pats tight end and Brady teammate, Rob Gronkowski caught the ball ten times for 140 yards and two TDs over the last two games.
The Bucs' defense also deserves praise. They lead the league in rush defense, allowing only 66 yards per game, and sit in ninth place in the league for points allowed with 20.3. Carlton Davis, the Bucs' corner has three of the right team interceptions, but there have been 12 total turnovers for them, this year.
Why the Giants Could Upset
The Giants have had some very bad luck this season. They have lost their last three games by a combined total of just 5-points. The defense is in eighth place against the run with 105 yards against per game and is in 14th place in points allowed with just 24.9. The defense has forced nine turnovers and has 18 sacks. The Giants have the second-best tackler in the league with Blake Marinez, who has 73 total tackles this year.
