Giants Pass Rush Provides Real Test For Bucs Offensive Line

Consider the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be a bit in awe of the Giants pass rush they'll face this Sunday against New York, at least judging by these quotes from the Tampa Bay Times:

"They're freaks of nature," LT Donald Penn said.

"They've got, like, three or five Pro Bowlers on their defensive line, something crazy like that," LG Carl Nicks said. "They're beasts."

"They're the world champs," Penn said. "After the loss last week, it's going to be tough. There's going be a lot of hitting in the mouth."

Well then. Against the Panthers last week, Tampa allowed two sacks of quarterback Josh Freeman for a total of 10 yards, and the Panthers held Freeman to a modest 128 yards on 16-of-24 passing. Meanwhile, that vaunted Giants pass rush could get no sacks of Tony Romo, as the Dallas quarterback threw for over 200 yards and beat New York at home.
