New York Giants: 4 bold predictions for Week 11 vs. Buccaneers
With the New York Giants Week 11 matchup being against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many are doubtful that New York can pull off the upset. Even so, Tampa Bay is weak against the pass, making this a huge opportunity for Daniel Jones. We go over this Giants-Buccaneers game focusing on some of our Giants Week 11 predictions.
The Giants aren’t being given much hope to compete in this one. For that reason, this is a prime moment for the franchise to shock to the world. Tampa Bay can’t defend the pass to save their lives, and the rush defense has been putrid recently.
For more insight on the Giants’ Week 11 matchup against the Buccaneers, listen below:
We might see the stars align for New York. Kadarius Toney has flashed his potential but hasn’t been consistent. The young rookie will have a chance to get back on track against Tampa Bay. Additionally, Saquon Barkley returns and hopes to make an immediate impact. Meanwhile, Daniel Jones is in line to prove himself against a tough opponent. With that said, here are four bold Giants Week 11 predictions for their game against the Buccaneers.

New York Giants Week 11 Predictions
4. Kadarius Toney proves he’s one of the best rookie receivers this year
The Giants’ rookie wide receiver has all of the tools necessary to become a YAC king in New York. Kadarius Toney is dangerous with the ball in his hands, as he’s capable of making quick cuts on a dime. With Richard Sherman officially on IR, now is the time for Toney to step up for his team.
Look for the coaching staff to get creative as they’ll search for ways to feed Toney throughout the game. He’s still learning to play at the professional level, but if Kadarius Toney can put it together in the final stretch of the season, the Giants will feel comfortable about his development.
3. Saquon Barkley lights up the field for 170+ total yards from scrimmage
It feels like it’s been forever since we last seen Saquon Barkley hit the field. He has a tough matchup against the Buccaneers, but Tampa Bay’s defense has been asleep at the wheel lately. Additionally, Barkley is insanely talented, as he’s a threat to take it to the house on any given play. We should see the Giants give the rock to Saquon Barkley early and often.
2. Daniel Jones goes bonkers for 300+ passing yards and 4 total touchdowns
It’s hard to tell if Daniel Jones is a franchise quarterback or not. He’s flashed potential throughout his career so far, but has yet to take the next step in development the Giants need. Either way, this seems like an opportune time for Jones to prove his worth.
The Buccaneers defense is awful against the pass, which bodes well for Jones. Additionally, the Giants quarterback is dangerous with his legs. If the pocket collapses, he has the ability to scramble and extend the play. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out, but we could finally see everything go right for Daniel Jones.
1. Giants find a way to win and stun the Buccaneers
Based on how the last couple of weeks have gone, nobody is safe. Top teams in the league are losing to bottom feeders left and right. The Buccaneers just lost to a mediocre Washington Football Team, for crying out loud. If the Giants stick to their game plan and attack Tampa Bay aggressively, we could see New York walking away with the victory on Sunday.
