Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants on November 2, 2020

New York Giants vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The New York Giants certainly aren't the same team they were just a couple years ago. The Giants got a new quarterback in 2019 and now they have a new head coach in 2020. Eli Manning, Odell Beckham and Landon Collins are gone. Dave Gettleman is now the team architect and he has brought in quarterback Daniel Jones and Head Coach Joe Judge as the Giants try to climb out of a hole that has seen them win just 12 games over the past three seasons combined.

Jones got his baptism by fire last season, as the sixth-overall pick in 2019 draft took over for the now-retired Manning, a franchise icon, just a month into the campaign. Jones had some impressive moments, particularly when he won his first career start in Tampa, beating the Buccaneers 32-31 when the home team missed a potential game-winning kick at the end of regulation. Jones then threw seven picks in his next four games but righted himself to have two four-TD/zero-INT games and one five-TD/zero-INT game in the season's second half.
