Although, the Buccaneers lost to the New York Giants, the Buc defense still held Eli Manning to just two touchdown passes. Manning had thrown 6 touchdown passes the week before, in the loss to the New Orleans Saints.
“Eli Manning and a resilient New York Giants defense answered one last charge by Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Manning threw for 213 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Giants rebound from last weekend’s debacle at New Orleans with a 32-18 victory over the mistake-prone Buccaneers on Sunday.” “At times we didn’t play as well as we’re capable of playing, and then we kind of boosted it up at the end to make sure that we were going to win,” ” New York coach Tom Coughlin said.” – Report by ESPN
