The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled away from the lifeless New York Giants for a 30-10 victory on Monday night.

Tom Brady was sharp, but Tampa Bay's offense often stalled in Giant territory, settling for three field goals. Nonetheless, the Giants' only touchdown came off a very short field, as New York couldn't move the ball enough to threaten the defending NFL champions.

The Bucs will face the Indianapolis Colts next Sunday while the Giants have an important NFC East matchup against the surging Philadelphia Eagles.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Quarterback

The Bucs threw the ball quite a bit, as Brady dropped back over 50 times in the game. The passing attack set up manageable down and distances throughout the course of the night.

Tom Brady Passing By Down
Down YPA Average Time To Throw Average Depth of Target
1 7.0 2.29 4.7
2 5.2 2.62 12.2
3 8.0 3.19 12.9
Running Backs

Leonard Fournette led the team with 10 carries but could only muster 35 yards and did not force a missed tackle on the ground. He did catch all six of his targets for 39 yards with 45 coming after the catch. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Brady spread the wealth between his three best targets, as Chris Godwin, Mike Evans and Rob Gronkowski each caught six passes. Only Gronkowski produced more than 2.0 yards per route run (2.54) while Godwin (1.63) and Evans (1.66) fell below that threshold. 

Offensive Line

Three starters Ali Marpet, Tristan Wirfs and Ryan Jensen — didn’t allow a pressure. Aaron Stinnie came on to replace Marpet at guard in the second quarter and didn’t surrender a pressure, either. 

Defensive Line

The Buccaneers' defensive line totaled 18 pressures, and Shaquil Barrett led the line with five. However, backups Anthony Nelson and Cam Gill were the ones who registered sacks. 

Linebackers

Devin White was targeted four times but only gave up three catches for 14 yards and one first down in coverage. Lavonte David was targeted just once, surrendering a five-yard catch. Backup Kevin Minter allowed a short two-yard touchdown. 

Secondary

Sean Murphy-Bunting gave up six catches on eight targets for 61 yards and three first downs. On the opposite side, Jamel Dean was targeted four times but gave up just two catches for six yards. Mike Edwards intercepted a tipped pass. 

New York Giants

Quarterback

Daniel Jones fared well when he was kept clean but was pressured early and often, as he faced pressure on just over half of his dropbacks.

Completion Rate Yards YPA Sacks
Kept Clean 89% 124 6.9 0
Pressure 35% 43 2.1 1
Running Backs

Saquon Barkley rushed just six times for 25 yards as the Giants fell into an early hole. He forced two missed tackles and caught his six targets for 31 yards.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Kadarius Toney was Jones’ favorite target but couldn’t gain much traction, as his 10 targets led to just seven catches for 40 yards. Kenny Golladay was targeted just twice, resulting in a 12-yard reception.

Offensive Line

Andrew Thomas caught a touchdown pass but also surrendered three pressures and a sack. Guards Matt Skura gave up four pressures while Will Hernandez allowed five.

Linebackers

Tom Brady picked on Tae Crowder in the short passing game, as Crowder gave up five completions for 50 yards and three first downs. He did pressure Brady once as a pass-rusher.

Secondary

James Bradberry was targeted 12 times and allowed seven catches for 66 yards, six first downs and a touchdown. Julian Love was targeted eight times and allowed six catches for 60 yards and a touchdown.
