Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants’ Leonard Williams looks to reverse fortunes vs. Tom Brady

Williams is 1-10 against Brady.

The workload — on pace to be his heaviest since his lone Pro Bowl season in 2016 — means last week’s bye came at a good midseason point for Williams, who went to Turks and Caicos with fellow linemen Dexter Lawrence and Austin Johnson.

“I usually never do anything during the bye week. I try not to get out of football mode,” Williams said. “That’s what I thought. But having that time off actually was really helpful. I was really excited to be back, and I felt refreshed and ready to finish this season strong.”

Note to Giants: Tom Brady’s Buccaneers are vulnerable

“I don’t think we have given any team our best shot yet,” former Giants and current Bucs defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said this week. “We try to forget we’re the Super Bowl champions, but you’ve got to understand all 31 teams are looking to play their best against us. I don’t think we’ve been playing our best ball, but we’re capable of playing our best ball. Once we do that, you’ll see the true Buccaneers come out.’’
