LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 00 New York Giants 10

Despite nine possessions inside the New York Giants’ 35-yard line and six inside the 12, the Buccaneers were held scoreless for the fourth time of the season. It was the Giants’ first shutout since 1970.

Dan Ryczek's high snap to punter Dave Green resulted in the Giants taking possession at the Buccaneers’ 1-yard line, leading to a Bob Hammond run for the Giants’ only touchdown. The Buccaneers were stopped twice when choosing to run on fourth down instead of attempting field goals. Isaac Hagins narrowly missed returning the kickoff for a touchdown following the Giants’ touchdown, but was tackled by the kicker. Danny Reece also was tackled by the last Giant during a punt return that nearly went for a touchdown.

Buccaneers starting quarterback Jeb Blount passed for 234 yards, and threw a touchdown pass to Louis Carter that was called back.
