The New England Patriots are preparing to host the New York Giants this Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 pm. So far the Pats have played well early on with a 2-1 preseason record. The Tom Brady/Randy Moss combination seems to be back in full effect along with a strong defensive nucleus. This game will mark the fifth consecutive year that the Patriots have squared off against New York before the regular season.
The Giants hold a 1-2 preseason record that includes their thrilling 27-24 victory over the Washington Redskins. It is questionable whether certain starters will get the call to play, knowing official games start in just a week. After Brady was tackled and fell awkwardly on his shoulder against the Washington Redskins, there has been speculation about how healthy he really is.
“Look, we played a physical game against a very physical team…Short-handed game, a lot of guys with bumps and bruises…a lot of guys who played in the game would fall into that category,” said head coach Bill Belichick. “That’s pretty normal after a game like that.”
After Thursday the Pats will look to kick off the regular season in Gillette Stadium verses the Buffalo Bills on September 14th.
