Monday Night Football: Giants at Buccaneers (7:15 CT) — Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

A home game against the New York Giants might be just what the doctor ordered for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who enter tonight’s contest on a two-game losing streak. Since crushing the Bears on October 24, the Buccaneers had a bye week sandwiched between a pair of losses to the New Orleans Saints and the Washington Football Team. The defending champions will look to get back on track tonight against the 3-6 Giants at Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs will be getting some help with Rob Gronkowski set to return to the lineup tonight. Gronkowski, who has been sidelined since the Halloween loss to the Saints on Oct. 31 and has played just six offensive snaps since the end of September, is ACTIVE tonight. This makes tonight’s Giants-Bucs that much more interesting.

The last time these two teams got together, Tom Brady and Daniel Jones were trading touchdowns all night and treating us to an entertaining game. Hopefully, tonight will be a repeat performance.
