Giants vs. Buccaneers NFL Week 3 Predictions, Preview & NFL Betting Tips
We have Giants vs. Buccaneers NFL Week 3 Predictions, Preview & NFL Betting Tips for the game in Florida this Sunday.
The third week of NFL action rolls on this weekend as the New York Giants travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers. Both sides had contrasting results last time out, but this match could go either way.
New York Giants Predictions
It has been a disastrous start to the new season for the Giants as they have lost both their matches already. They opened the season with a 35-17 defeat against the Cowboys, before taking on the Bills last time out.
The 28-14 defeat was a disappointing performance from a Giants perspective, and they will need to improve across the field if they are to have any chance of winning against Tampa Bay.
New York started well and ended well as they scored seven points at the opposite ends of the game. However, they fell off the pace in the quarter before half time as they conceded 14 unanswered points.

Eli Manning completed 250 passing yards and made two interceptions as well as assisting a touchdown for Saquon Barkley. The only other touchdown in the game was scored by T. J. Jones.
Aldrick Rosas also contributed two kicking points. However, the Giants will need to improve.
Manning has been benched and young Daniel Jones will replace him. That should make for interesting viewing.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Predictions
The Bucks meanwhile are sitting pretty at the top of the NFC South. They started the season with a disappointing 31-17 defeat against the 49ers before getting their first win of the season last time out against the Panthers.
The 20-14 victory was tighter than many expected, and there is still some way for this Bucs side to go before they are spoken about as potential Super Bowl winners.

Their next two matches will go a long way to examining their chances. Tampa were consistent throughout the game with the Panthers and outscored their opponents in every quarter.
Jameis Winston completed 205 passing yards and assisted one touchdown. Peyton Barber and Chris Godwin contributed the touchdowns, while Matt Gay added eight kicking points for the Bucs.
Giants vs. Buccaneers head-to-head
