The 0-1 World Champs New York Giants will host the 1-0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday September 16th, 2012 for their NFL week 2 matchup.
This game is available for betting at BetOnline Sportsbook and the Giants are listed as 7.5 point favorites with a total of 43.5 points.
Tampa Bay´s new head coach started off with the right foot his tenure with the Bucs. He was able to contain Carolina´s praised attack, who totally dominated them in 2011, holding them to only 10 rushing yards on this game, as Carolina surprisingly ran the ball only eight times on the game.
Despite the fact that they were not challenged on the ground they had very good defensive plays when they needed them, and the team showed plenty of discipline. It is now clear that rookie running back Doug Martin is the bell cow for this team, something to consider going into this game against a Giants team that surrendered 143 rushing yards in their hurtful loss to the Cowboys.
The Giants will certainly need to step up with their game to challenge a Bucs defense that looked good, and Tampa definitely needs to find more rhythm in the passing game to be able to exploit a Giants secondary that allowed 290 passing yards and 3 touchdowns on week one. Week 2 might be too soon to expect a major increase in offensive production, and considering both teams’ defenses this game will likely be a low scoring affair.
