The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to go 2-0 for the first time since 2010, when they take on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hit the road for the first time during the 2012 NFL seaon, as they head to East Rutherford, NJ to take on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

The Buccaneers come into the game looking to go 2-0 for the first time since 2010, but must do so against the defending Super Bowl champions. The Giants, on the other hand, are looking to avoid going 0-2 after losing to the Dallas Cowboys, 20-17, on Sept 5.

The Buccaneers will need to do a good job against the vaunted pass rush of the New York Giants if they want to head back to Tampa with a win. The Giants defensive line, led by Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck, will be a challenge for a Tampa Bay offensive line that is missing Davin Joseph and could be without Jeremy Trueblood, who injured his ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. ET and will be aired nationally on FOX.
