Buccaneers fall to Giants




The Buccaneers fall to 1-2 after a heartbreaking loss to the New York Giants. The offense started off great by scoring on their first five possessions. The offense was on fire to start the game scoring on each of its first five possessions.

The Buccaneers defense was solid if not great to start the game. The front seven swarmed running back Saquon Barkley essentially shutting him down before knocking him out of the game in the 2nd quarter.

The second half started off horribly for the Buccaneers defense and the comeback was on. The defense seemed to lift their foot off the gas in the 3rd quarter and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones took full advantage.

Even with the horrible effort the Buccaneers had a chance to win it. Unfortunately rookie kicker Matt Gay was not up to the challenge.
