Coming off their second victory of the season on Monday night the 2-7 New York Giants find themselves in a pick ‘em game this coming Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the 3-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Coach Pat Shurmur was already thinking about the Bucs in his post-game press conference Monday night.
“It’s always fun to win a game and like I told them, I said that the ones that you have to fight the hardest for are the ones that should feel the best,” Shurmur said. ‘I know where we’re at, but this feels good to win a game and hopefully we can build on this getting ready for Tampa.”
Tampa Bay has lost six of its last seven games after a 2-0 start. The Buccaneers have gone back to Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, replacing Jameis Winston.
Sunday’s game will bring former Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who leads Tampa Bay with 8 sacks, back to New Jersey.
