Giants Beat Patriots In Final Preseason Tune Up

In the final tune up, where the Giants didn’t even play their starters, Big Blue’s backups beat the Patriots’s backups  18-17.

The Patriots got off to an early lead. BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored on a 1 yard touchdown run. .After trading field goals, Green-Ellis scored another touchdown early in the 2nd to make it 17-3. After a scoreless 3rd, Da’Rel Scott got the Giants back on the board with a 65 yard touchdown run. Safety Derrick Martin recovered a fumble and ran it 11 yards to the end zone. Jerrel Jernigan caught the two point conversion to make it 18-17.

David Carr threw for 116 yards and 1 interception, but Sage Rosenfels did not play, indicating that Carr might have won the backup role. Da’Rel Scott continued his strong preseason, running for 114 yards on 12 carries. Devin Thomas led the receivers with 42 yards.

Clint Sintim left with a left knee injury, while Jerrel Jernigan went for x-rays on his left wrist.

This game didn’t really give us any indication of what the 2011 Giants will be like. It’s more just a game to bide time. Next week, we’ll learn a lot more.

    If Carr wins that battle thats two million saved from the cap. Lets turn that into a quality TE.

    It does show resilience, that guys on the backside of our roster our going to be ready to step up. Also we didn’t beat their backups 18-17, we beat their backups 15-0, Tom Brady and the first unit offense scored 17 points before giving way to their backups who were obliterated by our second/third units.
    Carr looked horrible though, turnovers need to be cleaned up (sadly we’re still saying this after last season), there’s a lot of d-line talent on this team, even in the backup units, too bad there’s no developmental league we could be stockpiling these kids.
    The one player I will single out in this game in terms of positives is Greg Jones (other than not falling on a fumble early) looked great, his lack of size actually makes him more elusive on blitzes where on at least 3 occasions he squirted right through the line and put immediate pressure on the passer, good game kid.
