Monday's matchup between the Giants and Buccaneers (9 p.m. ET, ABC) is a battle of two playoff teams that have fallen on hard times.

The Bucs are the defending Super Bowl champions. However, they are 1-4 at home, haven't won two straight games all season and have decided to deactivate wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson for the rest of the season. New York has lost five of its past seven games and coach Jim Fassel is steadily fielding questions about his future with the franchise.
