Giants Vs. Buccaneers: Expect Another Shootout


The New York Giants play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. A week after Drew Brees torched the Giants for over 500 yards and 7 touchdowns through the air, rookie quarterback Jameis Winston shouldn’t be afraid of what Big Blue can bring at him. The Buccaneers don’t look like they’re equipped to stop Eli Manning so expect this game to be another shootout.

Eli Manning is red hot coming off a six touchdown performance. The Buccaneers have given up three 300 yard passing days in a row. Manning should be able to shred the Buccaneers defense apart much like he did to the defense of the Saints. Manning is on pace to have his best statistical season. The Giants have problems but their quarterback isn’t one of them.

Manning has some unbelievable talent around him that should shine again this Sunday. Odell Beckham Jr., who caught three of Manning’s touchdown passes last week looks unstoppable. Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris have stepped up as go to guys for Manning. The Giants will spread the ball around, Manning will release the ball quickly and the Buccaneers will have no answer for stopping the Giants.

Jameis Winston is playing a pretty inspired brand of football himself. Winston has certainly found the jump to the NFL challenging but he has hit his stride lately. He has thrown for 1,648 yards, 10 touchdowns and 7 interception this season. Winston has been playing much safer with the football in the last few weeks so that touchdown to interception ratio is a bit misleading.

Winston has tons of talent around him. Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are an elite pairing at wide receiver. Doug Martin is one of the best running backs in the game and Charles Sims is a nice receiving running back that complements him.

With all this talent on the offensive side of the football, there is no reason to think that this will be anything but a barnburner.
