The Bucs won their third straight game and moved to 6-2 on the season but it was a far from impressive performance on Monday Night Football against the one-win Giants.  A late scoring drive by the Big Apple team led them needing a two- point conversion to tie the game and it took an officials’ discussion before Antoine Winfield’s pass break-up was ruled valid and not interference.   Ryan Succop had four fieldgoals and Tom Brady another pair of touchdown passes.
