The Giants head into Tampa Bay for a giant Week 9 clash where both teams desperately need to come out with a win.
New York comes in off a heart breaking, 52-49 loss to the Saints last week that featured one of the best offensive performances from both teams in quite some time.
As for the Bucs, they blew a 17 point lead, but still managed to come back and knock off the Falcons 23-20 to move to 1 game of the .500 mark.
Eli Manning and the Giants had one of their best performances offensively in team history on Sunday. However, they also had one of their worst performances defensively in team history, which is the reason for them coming up short to the Saints.
Even with the loss, the .500 Giants still sit atop the NFC East and will look to get back over the .500 mark this week with a road win.
First, looking at the offense, QB Eli Manning finished 30 of 41 for 350 yards and racked up 6 touchdowns with no interceptions in the loss. WR Odell Beckham Jr. finished with his best game of the season as he went for 130 yards on 8 receptions with 3 touchdowns.
Defensively, the Giants were just a mess. They allowed the Saints to rack up over 600 yards of offense, which sits well above their poor 428.2 yards against on the season per game.
The Giants have also struggled mightily on the road as they are just 1-3 SU and have allowed 29.0 points against on the season.
The Bucs got their biggest win of the season as they were likely destined to fall to 2-5 on the season heading into Atlanta on Sunday.
However, after racing out to a 17 point lead, Winston and the Bucs looked like they were going to cruise to a win. The defense broke down and eventually blew that 17 point lead, but a field goal in overtime gave the win right back to Tampa Bay.
The Bucs were led by RB Doug Martin, who is really hitting his stride at the right time. Martin finished Sunday’s win with 71 yards on 23 carries, but came up with some giant conversions. QB Jameis Winston had a solid rushing day as he finished with 117 yards and a touchdown.
Overall, the Bucs rush attack has averaged 131.3 yards per game.
With the Giants struggles against the pass, expect Winston to really key in on Mike Evans this week. Evans leads the Bucs with 386 yards on 24 receptions this season.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: New York ATS
Still leading the NFC East, the Giants cannot afford to fall under .500 here. Eli Manning needs to find a way to stake the Giants to an early lead here, as Tampa Bay has shown once they get rolling, they’re tough to stop.
