New York Giants at New England Patriots: Preseason Game Info, Notes, and More

Here's everything you need to know about the New York Giants' preseason opener.

The long wait is over, and the return of Giants football is back.

Ok, sort of. The game won't count for another month. The matchups we'll see starting with this evening's Giants preseason opener against the New England Patriots will pit the Giants starters against most of the Patriots' backups.

Football is football, and it will be nice to watch the Giants hit others instead of each other, right?

While it's always preferred during the preseason to see how the Giants starters go against the opponents' counterparts, this reported setup works in the Giants' favor.

The silver lining is that the evaluation process for the Giants will be on even ground. In other words, the first- and second-team offenses will likely face the same competition in the first half. That puts the evaluation process on equal footing and makes things easier for the Giants coaching staff when they sit down to do their evaluation.

Speaking of evaluation, the final score of this game doesn't matter. Daboll and company will use this game to see how far along the team has come in grasping all the installs. They will also use it to figure out where upgrades to the depth might be needed to get the team ready for its regular-season opener next month against the Titans.

Keep it here at Giants Country for complete coverage of all the action.
