The final week of the NFL Preseason is upon us, and there is a very interesting matchup on the schedule. The New York Giants will travel to Foxboro to take on the New England Patriots in a game that has significant meaning for both teams. The New York Giants have defeated the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl two separate times in the last decade. New York has fallen on tough times of late, while the New England Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions. This game might not count for anything in the standings, but it will matter to the fans of both teams.
Both the New York Giants and New England Patriots come into this game with perfect 3-0 records in the preseason, and both teams have looked sharp. The New England Patriots have not been playing many of their starters in the preseason, but their team depth has come up huge. New England has been shutting down opposing offenses all preseason long. The New York Giants have a ton of young talent on their roster, and those young players have been delivering them wins in the preseason. The Giants are putting up a ton of points, and scoring in a variety of ways so far in their three victories.
Jones Looking Sharp For Giants
The New York Giants selected Daniel Jones with the sixth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and it appears that they have found a good one. Jones has had several terrific performances so far this preseason, and is giving the Giants fans plenty of hope for the future. Eli Manning is going to begin the season as the starting quarterback in New York, but Jones will be waiting in the wings. The Giants also have a talented third-string quarterback in Alex Tanney, and he has been putting up huge numbers in the preseason.
The Giants have been playing terrific defense through their first three preseason games, but they did struggle a bit in their most recent win. New York gave up 23 points to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals, and that could be a cause for concern in this game. The Giants have a veteran group on the defensive side of the ball, but will be playing mostly rookies and young players in this game. If New York is going to win their fourth straight game, then they will have to deal with Josh McDaniels’ offense.
Patriots Look Ready For Title Defense
The New England Patriots very rarely take the preseason seriously, but things appear to be different this season. The Patriots have looked sharp from the opening weekend, even though most of their starters have yet to take the field. Head coach Bill Belichick is extremely demanding, and it appears that the backup players have bought in to his system.
New England has been one of the best defensive teams in the NFL so far through this preseason. The Patriots have allowed just 11 points per game so far during this 3-0 start, and their defense looks ready to begin the season. New England has a few defensive players fighting for a roster spot, and their defense should put up another low number in this game.
Patriots Finish Preseason With Perfect 4-0 Record
The final preseason game usually features players who are trying to just simply make it on the practice squad. Both teams will not look as sharp in this one, but there will still be some interesting storylines surrounding this game. The New England Patriots just continue to prove how great their organization is, and they are going to get some “revenge” over the New York Giants in this game.
