The Buccaneers will look to break their losing streak as they face the Giants on “Monday Night Football.”
Coming off back-to-back losses against the Saints and the Washington Football Team, the Buccaneers will battle the Giants to keep their lead over the NFC South. Tom Brady will lead the Buccaneers at quarterback as he prepares to face the ninth-ranked pass defense in the league. Meanwhile, the Giants will look to come off a bye week capitalizing against the Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay struggled against Washington during its 29-19 loss, as Brady threw two interceptions in his first six passes. Running back Leonard Fournette, who leads the Buccaneers with 486 rushing yards, ran for only 47 yards against Washington. However, veteran tight end Rob Gronkowski will make his return after suffering back spasms, cracked ribs, and a punctured lung that kept him out for five games.
Leonard Williams and Azeez Ojulari — who both lead the Giants with 5.5 sacks — will look to make life difficult for Brady, Fournette, and Gronkowski. Offensively, quarterback Daniel Jones will finally be able to make use of running back Saquon Barkley as the latter makes his return from an ankle injury. Although the running back has struggled to stay healthy throughout the season, Barkley and running back Devontae Booker will be challenged against the NFL’s top-ranked rushing defense. The Giants also activated left tackle Andrew Thomas from the injured reserve after he missed four of the last five games with foot and ankle injuries.
Linebacker Shaquil Barrett leads Tampa Bay with 5.5 sacks and an interception, while Mike Edwards and Jamel Dean both total two picks. Former Giants linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul, who totals three sacks with one forced fumble, will also pressure Jones and his former New York teammates.
