Buccaneers Vs. Giants: What To Look For On Offense

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one upset under their belts, and they'll face the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants looking for another. SB Nation's Buccaneers blog Bucs Nation has a breakdown of what to look for in the game, starting with the Bucs O-line against the Giants' pass rush:

If there is one single matchup that could decide Sunday's game, it's this one. Starting right tackle is injured and hasn't practiced the past two days, making Demar Dotson the likely starter on Sunday. That could actually bode well for the Buccaneers as Dotson is the better pass-blocker, but his lack of experience will hurt him a lot against the Giants' awesome front-four. With third-year guard Ted Larsen next to him he won't have a lot of help, either - unless the Bucs decide to keep in a tight end or running back to help him out. Which would be a smart idea.

There's more to it than that, as well as breakdowns of matchups that impact the rushing game and the deep ball. Head over to Bucs Nation to check it out.
