After a strong first half, the Buccaneers head into halftime leading the Giants, 16-10, in Tampa. The Buccaneers have led for the duration of the game thus far.

Jameis Winston tossed a pair of first-half touchdowns - one to Mike Evans and another to O.J. Howard - to help Tampa Bay off to an early lead. Winston hit Evans for a six-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, which helped Evans move to the No. 3 spot on the Buccaneers' all-time list for touchdown receptions. His second touchdown came in the same quarter after connecting with O.J. Howard on a 48-yard touchdown. It was the first score of Howard's career.

Nick Folk booted a 20-yard field goal at the end of the half to give the Buccaneers their first field goal of the game.

The Giants didn't get on the board until the second quarter, where they scored all ten of their points. New York hit a field goal at the start of the quarter and found the end zone for the first time at the end of the half when Eli Manning scored on a run.

The Bucs' defense, which struggled a week ago, has performed well thus far. Gerald McCoy has been partictularly impressive. The Giants are set to start the second half on offense.
