Giants-Buccaneers Score Update: New York Leads 6-3 After One Quarter

After one quarter at MetLife Stadium, the New York Giants lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6-3.

The two teams exchanged field goals on their opening drive, with the Giants taking a 3-0 lead with a Lawrence Tynes kick from 37 yards out less than three minutes into the game. The Bucs answered a seven play, 60-yard drive that ended with a 45-yard Connor Barth field goal.

The Giants drove down the field again in the latter stages of the quarter, but missed opportunities in the red zone forced the team to settle for another Tynes field goal, this one from 24 yards away that put New York ahead 6-3 with 2:58 remaining in the quarter.

Eli Manning is playing efficiently, as he has completed 5-of-10 passes for 96 yards, however, his stats could be better if not for untimely drops from Giants receivers.
