The New York Giants are still mad about the final kneel down in their win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and are issuing a warning for any team that tries the stunt again.

The Buccaneers dove at Giants quarterback Eli Manning's knees and knocked him to the ground trying to cause a fumble when Manning said he made it known that he was going to take a knee.

Giants guard Chris Snee said his team will be prepared next they are in the victory formation.

“We’ll just tighten up and just be ready for them to fire off,” Snee said to the New York Daily News.“And I wouldn’t change my reaction in any way. If a guy dives at my knees, my knee is going into the back of his head. That’s what happened in the game, and that’s what will happen going forward.”

Defensive end Justin Tuck said he would disobey orders from his defensive coordinator if he were told go after a player's knee.

“I have been in the league for eight years, and that is the first time that I’ve seen that. If Perry Fewell told me to dive at a guy’s knee, when we were losing, I would say ‘No,’” Tuck said. “And that is just a man on man talking.”
