Tom Brady and the red-hot Bucs won’t be showing any mercy to the NY Giants on Monday Night Football. Big Blue will need these key guys to step up to keep the game close or pull off the upset.
The NY Giants return home for their second straight primetime game this Monday night. Metlife Stadium will be welcoming arguably the league’s hottest team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs are led by Head Coach Bruce Arians and a newcomer at quarterback named Tom Brady (the guy’s pretty good). The team is well-coached on all three sides of the ball and they have talent in abundance on offense and defense.
After blowing a late lead in Philadelphia, it will be interesting to see how NY responds this week. This game will be another measuring stick to see how the GMen stack up against one of the league’s elite teams. The NY Giants are well-known for rising up to to Tom Brady-led teams.
This game should be no different. Despite their 1-6 record, Big Blue has been competitive in every game sans the 49ers debacle from Week 3.
The GMen beat the Bucs last year in dramatic fashion, winning at the gun on a TB missed game-winning field goal. This game won’t be the same as it features many new faces and both teams are completely different.
If the NY Giants want to pull off the shocking upset, they will need some players to step up and make some big plays in key spots. Let’s look at who to watch for NY in Week 8.
