Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10.5) at New York Giants: O/U 47.0 (-107/-115)
Last time out, Tampa Bay used a big fourth quarter to blow out the Las Vegas Raiders and come away with a 45-20 road win. Tampa Bay led 24-17 heading into the fourth quarter when Las Vegas settled for a field goal to make it 24-20. The Buccaneers scored 21 points in the final 7:22 to put this game on ice and get out of Vegas with a win. Tom Brady was lights out as he went 33/45 for 369 yards, and four touchdowns. Scotty Miller, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, and Tyler Johnson all hauled in touchdowns from Brady.
New York suffered a painful 22-21 loss at the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday. The Giants led 21-10 with less than five minutes to go, but Philadelphia scored the final 12 points to come away with the win and the division lead. Daniel Jones went 20/30 for 187 yards, two touchdowns, one interception, and led the Giants with 92 rushing yards on four carries. The Giants still have a lot of work to do.
Series History: New York has won seven of the last eight meetings and now leads the all-time series 16-7.
