N.Y. Giants vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers preview: G-men can make up for Dallas loss

N.Y. Giants vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers preview: G-men can make up for Dallas loss

COMMENTARY

Overreaction by fan bases over the outcomes of Week 1 is omnipresent. Fanatics’ favorite teams play very well or very poorly, and knee-jerk reactions are inevitable (especially due to the nature of football, where there is a week-long break for the victory or loss to stew).

The Giants will have had 11 days to mull over what went wrong in their opener on Wednesday, September 5 at MetLife Stadium. The short explanation? They had a banged up secondary and played flat against their division rival, the Dallas Cowboys. It happens. Last season, they lost twice to the Rex Grossman-led Redskins, but still went on to be Super Bowl champions.

2011’s NFC Divisional Round opponent, the Green Bay Packers, offers some interesting parallels to Big Blue this season. Both teams have well-publicized weaknesses that other teams try to exploit to beat them, and while only one of these teams was able to overcome their shortcomings last year, both tried to address them during the offseason.
