If the “Monday Night Football” showdown of week 11 feels familiar, it’s because it should. It’s a game that has occurred in each of the last three seasons and was on “Monday Night Football” last season.
The showdown is one between the Buccaneers and the Giants. Tom Brady has a long history against the Giants that includes two of his three losses in the Super Bowl. He’s been great against them in the regular season, but they just matched up really well against him during their two postseason games.
Brady will want revenge, even though the last Super Bowl they faced was nearly a decade ago. The Bucs are desperate for a win after losing straight games for the first time this season. Meanwhile, the Giants are only 3-6 on the season, so they will need to win frequently down the stretch to have any chance of making the playoffs.
Here’s everything you need to know about ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game for Week 11, including start time and more.

He is 7-1 in Super Bowls, where he does not play the Giants.
Tampa Bay has lost consecutive games. They lost 36-27 to the Saints in Week 8 and were stunned by Washington 29-19 in Week 10. Brady won’t be happy that he didn’t win three weeks in a row (even if one was a break), so he and the offensive they will. be motivated for this.
The only questions for the Bucs in this one are about the health of Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown. Both have missed several weeks due to persistent injuries. Defensively, the team may be without Vita Vea and also placed cornerback Richard Sherman on IR with an injury.
As for the Giants, they are coming off a win over the Raiders in Week 9 and a goodbye in Week 10.

If they play, Daniel Jones could move the ball better than many expect against this defense.
