TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - No last-minute heroics for Eli Manning and the Giants this time. New York pulled a dominant running game off the shelf to pulverize the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from start to finish.
Manning threw for two touchdowns and Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw led a resurgence of a strong ground attack that was absent the previous two weeks, helping the Giants (3-0) remain unbeaten with a 24-0 rout of the winless Bucs (0-3).
The game wasn't nearly as close as the final score.
Tampa Bay, which has lost seven straight dating to an 0-4 December that cost it a playoff berth last season, was outgained 397 yards to 86 and did not have a first down until late in the third quarter.
