Bucs @ Giants

Recommended Posts



The Buccaneers had lost five in a row to the Giants, including the playoffs, before beating them in Week 4 last season on a field goal as time expired. Tampa Bay is 1-7 all-time on the road against the Giants, with the lone win coming in Week 14 of the 1997 season.

Tampa Bay has lost six of its last seven games, including an active three-game losing streak. Last week, the Buccaneers became the first team in the Super Bowl era to score three points or fewer with at least 500 net yards in a game.

New York snapped a five-game losing streak with a 27-23 victory at San Francisco last week. The Giants have not won consecutive games since Weeks 14 and 15 of 2016. They're 0-4 at home this season and haven't scored more than 18 points in any of those games.

The Buccaneers rank first in the NFL in passing yards per game (361.2) and third in both touchdown passes (23) and passing yards per attempt (9.04). The only team this millennium to rank in the top three of each of those categories and miss the playoffs was the 2008 Saints.

DeSean Jackson leads the NFL in yards per reception among qualifying players at 21.0, on pace to be the second-highest mark in his career (2010 -- 22.5). Jackson has 693 receiving yards on 55 targets this season; among players with 600+ receiving yards in 2018, Jackson has been targeted the fewest times.

Saquon Barkley is the only player this season with at least 500 yards rushing and receiving. The only other Giant to reach those numbers through the first 10 weeks of a season was Frank Gifford in 1956.
