Tampa Bay kicker Matt Bryant continued to serve as the Bucs offense's only source of point production Sunday by drilling a 43-yard field goal in extremely windy conditions at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. Bryant, who has made 6-of-9 field goals on the season, is the Pewter Report MVP of Tampa Bay's 17-3 loss to New York. 
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a tough road contest to the New York Giants, 17-3, on Sunday. After generating only 176 yards of total offense, no one on Tampa Bay’s offense proved worthy enough to win PewterReport.com’s Most Valuable Player honors this week. Despite a couple of good performances by a few defensive players, such as defensive linemen Chris Hovan and Ellis Wyms and linebacker Shelton Quarles, Tampa Bay’s defense failed to record a turnover to help out its struggling offense.

Almost by default, this week’s PewterReport.com MVP honor goes to Buccaneers kicker Matt Bryant, who accounted for Tampa Bay’s only points of the day. Bryant, who was coming off a 62-yard, game-winning field goal last week against Philadelphia, gets credit for nailing a 43-yard field goal in the swirling winds of a blustery Giants Stadium.

After going 3-of-3 on his field goal attempts last week against the Eagles, Bryant has now made four field goals in a row and improved his season field goal percentage to 66.6 percent (6-of-9). Bryant started off the season 2-of-5 (40 percent).
