Brady hopes Bucs have fixed problems

Tom Brady says the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are urgently trying to fix the issues that have led to two straight defeats for the Super Bowl champions ahead of their Monday night matchup with the New York Giants.

The Bucs, who can be backed at 20/23 -11 on the Point Spread, are desperate to bounce back from their loss at Washington when they welcome the 15/4 Giants to Raymond James Stadium.

Brady threw two first quarter interceptions and Tampa Bay's defence allowed 11 of 19 third-down conversions as Washington ran out 29-19 winners in what is arguably the worst loss of the Brady Era when considering the Bucs' current status and the quality of opponent.

In the NFC South, the Buccaneers are one game up on the 5-4 New Orleans Saints, who exploited some glaring deficiencies on both sides of the ball in their 36-27 victory over the Bucs that preceded their bye week.

Struggling

Brady hasn't gone three straight games without a victory since 2002, but a loss to the struggling Giants would set alarm bells ringing for the whole team as well as the seven-time Super Bowl champion.

"I think we have to change it and I think winning football is about doing the right thing as often as possible," said Brady, via buccaneers.com.

"Everyone being on the same page, great communication and just giving the best effort as possible on every play. Things aren't always going to be perfect out there, but you have to have as few as mistakes as possible.

"I think there's a real urgency for us to have it right."
