NFL Picks Week 2: Buccaneers Vs. Giants

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulled off one of the major upsets in Week 1 of the 2012 season when they knocked off Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the debut of new head coach Greg Schiano. On Sunday, they'll pay a visit to the New York Giants, and unsurprisingly, not many experts are giving them a shot to score their second straight victory.

Experts from ESPN, Yahoo! and CBS Sports are all picking the defending Super Bowl champions, who enter the game with an 0-and-1 record after falling to the Dallas Cowboys in the season's opening game. The Giants, at the moment, stand as 7.5-point favorites over Tampa Bay, though that is liable to change.

Tampa's defense held the Panthers to only 10 points in Week 1, but stopping Eli Manning and New York's well-oiled passing attack poses an even bigger challenge than locking down Newton and Carolina's offense.
