New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Andrew Elderbaum

The Daniel Jones era begins against Famous Jameis. Unfortunately, unless Jones is also going to rush the passer and then defend said rushed passes it won’t matter. I am curious to see how a pick 6 machine like Winston fares against the Giants leaky secondary. Either way, the New York Giants will lose again. Tampa Bay 28 Giants 10.

The New York Giants officially debut Daniel Jones as the starter in a sloppy game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones will play decent football but will commit multiple turnovers that will ultimately seal the team’s fate. Jameis Winston will make just enough plays downfield to Mike Evans to secure a victory. Bucs win.

The Daniel Jones era is officially underway in New York as Eli Manning has been benched for the shocking sixth-overall pick from this year’s draft. Giant fans have warmed up to Jones since their team shockingly took his way too early in the draft and it is safe to say that most are excited for a new era in New York.

There will be learning curves, however, in his first start against a Buccaneers defense that is better than it gets credit for. Jameis Winston will suck slightly less than Jones will and the Bucs will edge out the GIiants by a field goal in one of the uglier games of the week. Tampa 20, Giants 17.

The New York Giants are in a pickle this week. They are starting a rookie against a team who has something to play for. Tampa Bay can contend for an NFC South title because the other teams in their division have their own issues. The Bucs will be coming hard after Daniel Jones in a variety of blitz packages. Additionally, count on them to stack the box against Saquon Barkley.

Tampa doesn’t have much of an offense. The Giants, on the other hand, have almost no defense. Not much will beat almost none. As Josh Allen showed last week, Bucs QB Jameis Winston doesn’t have to be that good, he just can’t give the ball away. Buccaneers win.
