Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive THE GAME The Giants (0-3) at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-1), at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday, Oct. 1, at 4:05 p.m. ET. THE WEATHER It will be warm, muggy and maybe a little rainy. The temperatures are expected to be in the high 80s and there's a 60 percent chance of evening thunderstorms, which could make for a messy second half of the game. WHAT IT MEANS The Giants are already in deep trouble and the odds are decidedly against them. Only three teams have reached the NFL playoffs after an 0-3 start since the playoffs expanded in 1990. Right now, before they think about anything else, they need to stop the bleeding. Their last
Last Sunday was an eye-opening day for the Minnesota Vikings. Sam Bradford missed his second straight game, and this time it didn’t seem as unexpected.

''It's hard for me to talk about it right now because I've already moved on,'' Keenum said, when asked about the career-high 369 yards and three touchdowns he passed for last weekend to beat Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-17 . The likelihood of Keenum starting a third straight game Sunday increased when Sam Bradford was held out of practice Wednesday to rest his sore left knee.
