The high-flying Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to take on the struggling New York Giants to wrap up Week 8 in a Monday Night Football matchup. The game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on ESPN.
The Buccaneers have won two straight games since losing to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Tom Brady has thrown six touchdown passes with no interceptions en route to two blowout victories. The resurgence of Rob Gronkowski has opened up the passing game and Ronald Jones has looked like a dominant back by rushing for more than 100 yards in three of his last four games. Tampa Bay’s run defense is elite and should contain one of the least productive backfield’s in the NFL.
New York only has one win this season but has managed to keep most of its games close. Daniel Jones leads the Giants in rushing yards and has struggled to get production out wide because of how injured his top weapons have been. The duo of Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton will have to show up to give New York a chance against the Buccaneers.
