Buccaneers defeat Giants in controversial fashion on Monday Night Football

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won their third straight game. However, this one ended in controversial fashion.

New York Giants head coach Joe Judge was so frustrated with the call that he was yelling at the officials well after the game. Initially, the officials flagged the Buccaneers on a two-point conversion.

After having a group huddle, the Buccaneers won 25-23 over the Giants on Monday night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

With the win, the Buccaneers have improved to 6-2 on the season. Tampa Bay was held to 25 or fewer points for the first-time since the season-opener when they lost 34-23 to the New Orleans Saints on September 13th.

Tampa Bay just happens to face the Saints on Sunday Night Football on November 8th.

The Giants dropped to 1-7 with the loss. New York is currently on a two-game losing streak.

Judge’s team was in this game. If Daniel Jones did not over throw several receivers, the team could have potentially won this game.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady went 28 of 40 for 279 yards. He had two touchdown receptions.

Leonard Fournette had 15 carries for 52 yards. Mike Evans had five receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones went 25 of 41 for 256 yards. He had two touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Wayne Gallman Jr. had 12 carries and 44 yards and a touchdown. Sterling Shepard had eight receptions for 74 yards.

Evans and Rob Gronkowski caught touchdowns receptions for the Buccaneers. When Brady hit Gronkowski for the third quarter touchdown reception, it was their 93rd touchdown as a pair.

The touchdown ended their tie with Steve Young and Jerry Rice, who are now third with 92. Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison are the leaders with 114.

Ryan Succop also made four field goals.

Dion Lewis and Golden Tate caught touchdown receptions for the Giants. Gallman Jr. also scored a rushing touchdown.

Graham Gano booted a field goal for the Giants, as well.
