The (3-6) New York Giants head to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Monday night to take on the (6-3) Buccaneers.
The Giants are coming off their bye week while the Bucs dropped their last game to Washington, 29-19. Quarterback Tom Brady threw two first quarter interceptions in the loss. Still, Tampa Bay is undefeated at home this year, a seemingly tall task for the Giants.
The Giants enter the game with a slim chance of earning one of the final two wild-card spots in the NFC. Seven teams make the playoffs in each conference, and the Giants enter the weekend 13th in overall conference standings. The 5-4 New Orleans Saints and 5-5 Carolina Panthers are currently holding the final two wild-card spots.
Running back Saquon Barkley, who has not played for the New York Giants since suffering a Week 5 ankle injury, is expected to play. Meanwhile, Andrew Thomas, who is still officially on injured reserve, is also trending toward playing.
The Giants also placed defensive back Logan Ryan on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday.
