"We have expressed concern to both FOX and the National Football League in advance about both local team match ups being scheduled as single headers for Sunday, Oct. 1", the statement said.
Of course they won't concede this is already a lost season, but everyone else, certainly forlorn and angry Giants fans, will surely do it for them.
Meanwhile, Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston threw three interceptions against the Vikings, and the Buccaneers never established offensive consistency.
Sterling Shepard had a big game, catching seven passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. Against the Buccaneers, the Giants rushed for 91 yards, while allowing 111 yards.
The running game has been led by Jacquizz Rodgers, with 82 yards on the ground. For the Buccaneers, the quarter mark comes following Thursday's game.
Folk redeemed himself after missing two field goals and an extra point earlier in the day, booting the victor after Winston answered Eli Manning's second TD pass of the day with an impressive drive that began at his 25. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV.
Manning, who passed for 366 yards and three touchdowns against Philadelphia, said the Giants are more determined than crestfallen. It wasn't his offense's fault that Landon Collins let tight end Cameron Brate get past him for a 26-yard completion on the fateful final drive. He has caught 16 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown.
The Giants will host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. These two teams are both struggling a little bit, but you have to expect both of them to bounce back. "You can't carry things over from one season to the next". That Eli Manning is able to complete any passes at all is nearly miraculous. But with Minnesota turning Winston's turnovers into points, the Bucs had to all but abandon the running game.
A wounded Tampa Bay Bucs defense will greet them.
The 0-3 Giants are staring at some staggering history.
The Bucs (2-1), who blew a 13-point first-quarter lead, set up Folk with a nine-play, 59-yard drive, highlighted by Jameis Winston's 26-yard pass to tight end Cameron Brate, which positioned Tampa Bay at the NY 13-yard line.
