New quarterback, same lack of faith in the New York Giants. Analysts from around the Internet are overwhelmingly picking the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win on Sunday.

NFL.com — Bucs

Todd Bowles has turned the Bucs’ defense into one of the season’s early surprises by playing to its strengths. In a league where pass rushers and cornerbacks should matter most, Bowles is counting on the great wall of Tampa (Ndamukong Suh/Vita Vea/William Gholston/Lavonte David) to stop top runners like Saquon Barkley and hoping he schemes up enough pressure to create confusion. Expect Bowles’ NFL-leading blitz percentage to remain high against Daniel Jones, a.k.a. Danny Dimes, a.k.a. The Only Living QB in New York.
