Pressure Eli Manning
New York’s issues along its offensive line are well documented. For the past few seasons, Eli Manning has faced a terrific amount of pressure up front.
Unfortunately, Manning can barely move around the pocket, and it leads plenty of sacks. On the year, the Giants have allowed 32 sacks, the third-highest mark in the league.

Tampa Bay has had trouble rushing the quarterback this season. With just 21 sacks on the season, the Buccaneers failed to consistently pressure quarterbacks this season.
Last week, against a Washington Redskins offensive line that was without three starters, Tampa couldn’t impact Alex Smith.
Although it would seem like the Bucs would have a great chance to get after Manning, they haven’t been able to take advantage of any favorable matchup this season.
If they want to find the win column for the first time in over a month, it starts with pressuring the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
