Week 11 – vs. New York Giants (Monday Night)

Believe it or not, this game has the potential to be somewhat juicy. At first glance, it may not be the most “glamorous” matchup but consider where both teams could be. Well, not so much the Buccaneers.

By this point, it’s pretty safe to assume the Bucs will be in very good shape. That’s not saying they’ll have a doughnut in the loss column by the time this game kicks off, but with all 22 starters and then some from a Super Bowl championship roster returning, it isn’t exactly a hot take to surmise that the Bucs will have a winning record.

Then there’s the New York Giants.

The NFC East, or NFC “Least” for all the comedians out there is a total mystery. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if any team won it, even if their record isn’t up to snuff. The Giants happen to be one of the “favorites”, if you want to call it that, so given how the standings usually are this time of year, it could be somewhat important. They have weapons on offense, which could make for some good matchups against the Bucs defense. The question mark is Daniel Jones, as it’s unknown where he will be by this point. As far as the Bucs go though, this is definitely the least anticipated of their primetime games in 2021.
