Tampa Bay tries for another upset on Sunday.

From 2001-2011, Greg Schiano called New Jersey home. The former Rutgers head coach turned the program around before leaving for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Just two weeks into his next rebuilding project, Schiano returns to New Jersey for a game at the Meadowlands.

Surprisingly it is Schiano's team, and not the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants, that enters the Week 2 game with the better record.

Tampa Bay is 1-0 after showcasing a strong defense and strong running game that scored the team a 16-10 upset over the Carolina Panthers.

Meanwhile, the Giants fell to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 due mainly to spotty play in a secondary plagued with injuries. Prince Amukamara might return at cornerback this week after missing the first game with a high ankle sprain.

The Buccaneers will likely need a strong performance from Josh Freeman to pull off another upset.
