The New York Giants have fallen to 3-7 after a blowout loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. The Giants went into this game with high hopes coming off of a bye week. New York won their last contest two weeks ago, got healthy over their bye, and still delivered a pitiful performance on Monday.

The Giants do not seem like a team that has a realistic chance of making the playoffs anymore. Their offense was inept versus the Buccaneers and their defense gave up 402 yards of offense. Tom Brady and the Bucs made easy work of the Giants to improve their record to 7-3 on the season.

Key stats and takeaways

New York Giants

  • QB Daniel Jones: 23/38 167 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT
  • WR Kadarius Toney: 7 receptions, 40 yards
  • CB Adoree’ Jackson: 1 INT

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • QB Tom Brady: 30/46 307 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
  • WR Mike Evans: 6 receptions, 73 yards, 1 TD
  • TE Rob Gronkowski: 6 receptions, 71 yards

The New York Giants put up only 10 points on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who were averaging over 40 points per game at home entering this contest. The Bucs put up 30 points, demolished time of possession, and won the turnover battle (3-1). Daniel Jones struggled to keep the ball clean and see the field, throwing 2 interceptions and gaining only 167 yards through the air.

The predictable Giants offense received plenty of criticism throughout the night from the ManningCast, the ESPN MNF cast, and fans around the world. Jason Garrett’s offense struggled to establish an identity against a bruised and battered Buccaneers defense.

Tampa Bay went out and put up points as they tend to do. Tom Brady looked as cool and collected as he usually does, completing 65% of his passes for over 300 yards. Brady led the Buccaneers to long, methodical scoring drives with no hiccups.

For the New York Giants, this is a demoralizing loss in what has been a hugely disappointing 2021 season. The writing seems to be on the wall: major changes are on the horizon. The Giants cannot continue their losing ways and will need ownership to step in and turn things around sooner than later.

New York Giants: Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense heating up ahead of primetime matchup

The New York Giants will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8. New York will play its second primetime game in a row after suffering an embarrassing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday night. Heading into this week’ss matchup, the Giants are once again staring defeat in the face on primetime.

Anything is possible, and we have seen the Giants upset Tom Brady in the greatest of fashion, but the Giants will be major underdogs in this Week 8 matchup. Tom Brady and the high-flying Buccaneers had a slow start to the season but have recently emerged as legitimate Super Bowl contenders over the last couple of weeks.

High-Flying Offense

Six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady is leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ high-flying offense in 2020. After two decades of dominance with the New England Patriots, Brady moved on to do things without Belichick in Tampa Bay. So far, Brady has found far more success than the Patriots, nearly putting to rest the “system quarterback” criticism he was dealt in New England.

Tom Brady is playing at an MVP level through seven weeks of the 2020 NFL season. He might not be winning the MVP race right now, but that is not an indictment on Tom, but, rather, praise to sing for the rest of the league’s star quarterbacks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have scored 83 points in the past two weeks. Tom Brady is coming off of an elite Week 7 performance that saw him throw for 369 yards and 4 passing touchdowns, and 1 rushing touchdown with 0 interceptions. Brady is Pro Football Focus’s third-highest graded quarterback in the NFL so far, trailing only Aaron Rodgers and Rusell Wilson.

Tampa Bay’s offense has been connecting on countless deep shots downfield. According to PFF, on 20+ yard throws, Tom Brady has totaled 15 Big-Time-Throws and 0 turnover-worthy-throws. He has been near-flawless when airing the ball out deep.

The New York Giants’ defense has allowed opposing offenses to gain an average of 251.7 passing yards and 24.9 points per game. Cornerback James Bradberry has been performing at an elite level, but he will have his hands full when matching up against Mike Evans and Tom Brady.

The Giants are hosting a beastly Buccaneers offense on Monday night. Unfortunately for New York, Brady and the Bucs are out of their sluggish phase. Now, they are exploding to the forefront of the NFL in a dominant fashion. The Giants’ defense has a tough task ahead of them as they gameplan to slow down the GOAT and his talent-loaded offense.
