Offensive line, Saquon Barkley’s discipline helped Giants dictate to Tampa Bay

Offensive line, Saquon Barkley’s discipline helped Giants dictate to Tampa Bay

Improving offensive line feeling good after best performance The New York Giants entered Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the league most inefficient rushing team. They entered with questions about whether their rebuilt and then rebuilt yet again offensive line could open consistent rushing lanes. They entered with questions about whether their explosive rookie running back was willing to lower his shoulders, follow the lanes that were there and take the tough yards. They left the field Sunday having manhandled the Buccaneers on the ground (31 carries, 163 yards, 5.3...

The plays that changed the game in Giants’ 38-35 victory over Tampa Bay

Which plays had the biggest impact on Sunday’s victory? The New York Giants have been no stranger to strange games in 2018 and a 38-35 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers certainly qualifies.

These are some of the most important plays of the game by Win Probability Added (WPA) and Expected Points Added (EPA), per data provided by nflscrapR. Explainers here (WPA) and here (EPA).

Buccaneers at Giants: Day-After-Game Reactions

Buccaneers at Giants: Day-After-Game Reactions

Another week and another loss and more questions to be answered. Dirk Koetter chose to start Ryan Fitzpatrick a week after another loss ridden with turnovers amidst a media wide consensus that Jameis Winston should be starting against the Giants. The result? Fitzpatrick turns the ball over even more and Jameis Winston comes in and leads the team to 4 straight touchdown drives, albeit with some luck, and ends it with a Hail Mary attempt that went for an interception, fitting given this seasons path. After a 3 point offensive performance a week ago, Dirk gave back the play calling to Todd...

Yarcho’s Pick Six: Wints-magic Comes Up Short

Yarcho’s Pick Six: Wints-magic Comes Up Short

Despite the effort from Jameis Winston, the Bucs fell short in New York Well, that’s about all she wrote, folks. The Buccaneers fell to the Giants 38-35, essentially sealing their fate and having yet another season end without a playoff berth. Despite Jameis Winston’s best efforts, the defense couldn’t come up with the one final stop to give the Bucs a chance to win. Had it not been for the early hole dug by the offense - thanks to three Ryan Fitzpatrick turnovers, one of which returned for a touchdown - things might have been different. But that’s the story of the season, isn’t...

Saquon Barkley got the “dirty yards” on Sunday and it helped the Giants win

Barkley’s career-best rushing day It has finally come full circle for rookie running back Saquon Barkley. Finishing with 142 rushing yards on 27 carries, Barkley was leaned on heavily in Sunday’s 38-35 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. An explosive outing like this isn’t out of the ordinary for Barkley. However, this time he proved his ability to be the between the tackles back the Giants need on Sunday In the first half of the year, we witnessed Barkley elect to bounce runs outside for losses when he was given a hole for a 3- to 4-yard gain. This frustrated everyone, including...
