Patriots vs Giants Preview


patriots vs giantsThe New England Patriots are set to close out their preseason against the New York Giants in a game on Thursday that both squads hope to win before the regular season gets underway next week.

The Patriots are likely to rest all of their teams key contributors for the game in order to maintain their health, but there is a chance that the Giants will play Eli Manning in order to help the veteran quarterback shake off some of the rust he has displayed this preseason. In addition the backups can expect an extended look so the teams can more easily make the cuts down to the 53 man roster.

The Giants enter this game 4-0 in the preseason, after also playing in the Hall of Fame Game, will the Patriots enter the game with a record of 2-1 in the preseason.

The New England Patriots would love to continue their over a decade long reign of dominance in the AFC East as they continue to out perform their division opponents, the Buffalo Bills, the New York Jets, and Miami Dolphins. The Patriots will likely fins themselves on top of the division again this season as they look to return to the playoffs and play their way back into the Superbowl and compete for another championship.

The Giants, who have cost the Patriots their last 2 chances at a Superbowl victory, are looking to bounce back this season after a terrible performance last season within the NFC East. Eli Manning played to one of his worst seasons last year and the Giants suffered because of it. The Giants hope to overcome the powerful offense of the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as the Washington redskins and Dallas Cowboys.

The line on this game favors the Giants by 3 games while the over/under is set at 41.5.
