The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got a narrow win over the New York Giants 1-7. All of this leads to the unsuccessful 2-point conversion with only 28 seconds remaining in the game which some consider to be highly controversial.
Antoine Winfield Jr appeared to have hit Dion Lewis’s arm just as the ball was reaching him, resulting in a final flag lifted by the executive team. It will only tie the game, but nevertheless it’s a narrow escape for the Bucs.
So why are we talking about a team with one of the worst performances in the NFL that barely wins against one of the best in the league?
I haven’t seen many of the Giants’ games this season, but of all the highlights I see, this is a team that can really play. It was a shame that Saquon Barkley sank as it caused shock waves throughout the tournament. There’s a lot of hope for the entire NFC East this year, but now it’s in turmoil. There is still some optimism in New York as they rebuild.
The Giants lost three of their last four matches with three points or less. Granted, it’s a bunch of division opponents that unfortunately don’t look any better than the Giants, but it looks like they’re starting to get a chance with their new conductor, Joe Judge.
When I started watching the tapes of the game, I realized that these Giants are not as bad as their performance we believe in. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard are both very good catchers. Evan Engram should be considered a tight finish in the top 10. I also really like Devonta Freeman (although he doesn’t play this game).
In general, I think the game is competitive because both teams went home all night. What I don’t like is the constant play in the weak area from the Bucs sub-team. The attack line was struggling to protect Brady, and failed to take advantage of the main plays and transition from third point.
It’s one of those games where you think the Bucs have not been preparing for the current week’s match. A lot of similarities with the week 5 competition with the Chicago Bears. Arians actually admitted that they started preparing for Packers two days before the Bears game.
Looks like they had the eighth week locked and jumped forward to reach the saints. Regardless, a win is a win, even if it’s ugly. So if they start preparing early, let’s hope they prepare better to get strong and win next week against Saints.
It seems we are always talking about an early turning point. Usually comes as sales.
#Bucs and #Giants each held the ball: 44 on their second hit in the game. Tampa Bay’s ended with a mess by Ronald Jones. New York’s, a Dion Lewis encounter. Not for the first time in 2020, we’ve seen sales plummet in a dynamic dynamic of volatility.

The awkward RoJo turned the tide early, and the Bucs just couldn’t stand up to them. Like what we’ve seen before, they let the opposing team score first.
This time, I hope it’s just the typical 2020 Buccaneers soccer tournament. They’ll come back and start marching down the pitch and they’ll end up with four or five touches and five sacks for the day, possibly an interception. CONGRATULATIONS!
After the Giants’ first touch, we beat the next two properties and scored only the second before the first half took place. Former Clemson Tiger player Wayne Gallman, their third string running back, ran at the next score after they marched down the pitch. I mean, I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit demoralized to watch.
It’s hard to win when you keep rolling the ball. Bucs only had one rotation but seemed to have disturbed the force. The Bucs lost their lead, they didn’t score any goals until the end of the third quarter. After that, RoJo had to sit on the bench for the remainder of the match.
This was supposed to be a 20-point strike against a struggling New York team. The defense has been solidified until now, JPP has said happily saying he will destroy his old team, and Brady and offense have shot all of the turrets up until now.
Deflation That is probably the best way to explain it. Bucs just look deflated. Without the touches of Evans and Gronk, there would be no hope for this team. Rojo was punished for losing her kick, but Fournette was ineffective. He’s only 52 yards in the night and doesn’t have a touch.
They kept running even knowing that it didn’t work. I’m not complaining, they’re running as hard as they can, but not when it stops working.
So, back to my original point: The Giants really looked like a good team, and the Bucs allow that! They should have completely destroyed them, but there’s a big difference from last year. No matter how bad they are, they are still trying to win.
Brady and Bucs have some tough competitions ahead of the week’s goodbye. This is probably the most difficult period in football right now. Saints, Panthers, Rams, and then they have the Champs Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chief. The good news is: it’s at home.
Whatever the kinks are, get them out right away. Anything that needs to be wiped out, get them out right away. Whatever it takes to shape, they need to get it done quickly. They make it through this stretch, it will be smooth sailing after a week of goodbye.
