Who saw this Giants season coming? It defies some sort of football logic that Jon Beason, Terrell Thomas and Andre Brown are big reasons Big Blue still has a pulse.
No lead had been safe for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So it was up to the defense to help them get their first win of the season.
After an 0-6 start to the season, the Giants (3-6) are suddenly only 1½ games behind Dallas and Philadelphia in the division, and only one back in the loss column.
At some point, even if they won’t admit it, Gus Bradley and his Jacksonville Jaguars must have wondered if a victory would come this season. They can stop wondering.

Boomer & Craig both aim to please – so with that in mind they decided to offer their award winning NFL Picks-Picks-Picks, for what is sure to be an entertaining Week 10 of the NFL season. They are as follows…
Eli Manning surely will miss Steve Smith, one of the NFL’s premier route runners and his go-to receiver, but the Giants still should have enough weapons to execute their game plan against the Cowboys.
The New York Jets were dragging on offense, unable to get anything cranking during a second straight sluggish performance. Then, desperation led to a successful spark: the hurry-up offense.
