The underdog Giants, led by an aggressive defense and an effective offensive attack, led the visiting Buccaneers at halftime, 14-6. The Giants’ offense made quick work of Ronald Jones’ first quarter fumble, as Daniel Lewis found Dion Lewis for a seven-yard touchdown pass three plays after the turnover. New York, following two more forced punts by its defense, stretched the lead to 14-3 after Wayne Gallman capped off a 10-play, 77-yard drive with a two-yard touchdown run. Tampa Bay, led by Tom Brady’s six completions on the Buccaneers’ final drive of the half, set up Ryan Succop’s 40-yard field goal just before intermission.
Can the Giants keep it up in the second half, or will Brady avoid another “giant” letdown? Keep it locked right here as we follow along with Monday night’s game:
