The spotlight will squarely be on New York Giants' rookie quarterback Daniel Jones on Sunday. However, Buccaneers kicker Matt Gay missed the kick giving the Giants and Jones their first win of the season.

Jones' first touchdown came in the second with NY down 12-3 with just over 10 minutes left in the quarter. With New York down 31-25, Jones led an eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive that was capped off by his seven-yard rush into the endzone.

Winston threw TD passes of 21, 3 and 20 yards to Mike Evans to help Tampa Bay build a 28-10 halftime lead.

Jones finished the game with 336 passing yards to go along with his two passing touchdowns and his two rushing touchdowns. "That's what's most exciting".

Jones just spent four quarters showing everyone why he was the pick, why he probably should have been the Week 1 starter, and why the Giants have a bright future with him behind center.




New York's offense stalled somewhat for the end of the third quarter and the majority of the fourth, but when Jones got the ball down six, he executed the two minute drill to perfection.

Tampa Bay top priority defensively was containing Barkley. He spent the second half on the sideline on crutches, wearing a boot on his ankle.

"We were going to stop Saquon", Arians said.

NY trailed by as many as 18 points going into the third quarter.

Buccaneers: at Los Angeles Rams, beginning stretch in which they won't play at home again until November 10.
