If you’re an NFL fan or you simply enjoy watching big games every week, you should consider tuning in to the Sunday afternoon game between the New York Giants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The game, which will kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 22, promises to pit two of the more interesting and worth-watching NFC teams against each other in sunny Tampa. And perhaps most importantly, this game will feature the debut of Giants star quarterback Daniel Jones, who will be replacing longtime Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
Needless to say, the game promises plenty of drama.
So, if you’re in the mood to watch a big game and be there the first time Daniel Jones plays in a regular season game, read on to find out how to watch New York Giants vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers online.
Giants vs. Buccaneers start time, channel
The New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers game will kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, September 22. The game will air on FOX, but if 1 p.m. games stretch on too long, there’s a possibility you might miss the kickoff until the earlier games are over. As always, famed play-by-play announcer Joe Buck will be calling the game.
