Tom Brady can regain some ground in the MVP race on Monday night with a dominant performance against the Giants.

The Buccaneers don’t need Tom Brady to be the league MVP this year. In fact, many fans seem to be cheering for the opposite, citing a curse regarding MVPs and Super Bowls.

Despite the superstition, the Bucs do need Tom Brady to play like the league MVP at the very least, and winning the award and ending the drought in Tampa for one of the most prestigious honors in the sport doesn’t hurt.

Brady is the most important part of this roster, and the start of the season has put this on display. The Bucs are much better when their offense is clicking, and that generally happens when the ball is in the air.

The Buccaneers and Brady shot out to a quick start in 2021, with Brady getting plenty of attention as the favorite for MVP, but the past two weeks have derailed those hopes. Fortunately for Brady, the other MVP hopefuls also haven’t experienced great luck either.

Each of the MVP frontrunners have fumbled their position at one point or another this season, and there is a chance for Brady to take over his spot again with a great stretch of games starting with the one tomorrow night.

All awards aside, Tampa does need Brady to step his game up, even if it isn’t for the sake of winning any awards. The past two games haven’t been great for the GOAT, and bouncing back against a team like the Giants is a great way to refocus before the end of the season.

One war or another, the Buccaneers need a huge game against the Giants if they want to keep their season on the trajectory from the early weeks.
