Buccaneers Smash Giants (30-10) to Get Back in the Win Column

Tom Brady was back to his old form on Monday Night Football as the Buccaneers rolled the Giants (30-10). After two straight losses, the defending champs needed a rewind. The return of TE Rob Gronkowski added another dimension. Four pass-catchers caught six balls, including Gronk, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette. Head coach Bruce Arians called the team “dumb” after last week’s loss, but Monday’s total team effort delivered Tampa Bay another home win. They’re 5-0 this season at home.
