NY Giants football is back tonight, and it kicks off against a team they have a rich history against. The New England Patriots will be the team’s first opponent this preseason, and it should be a must watch for Giants fans.
Although a lot of the main players won’t be getting onto the field tonight for an extended amount of time to prevent any injuries, it will still feature many new faces looking to make a name for themselves on the roster. It will also be the first time that Giants fans get to see what new head coach Brian Daboll’s system will look like in a live game.
Heading into this preseason, fans will be paying attention to a lot. This season is filled with hope for fans, as they are hoping to see the young talent make strides in these preseason games and flash their capabilities.
Even though it’s just a preseason game, this young team should be coming out hungry for a win. A lot of the players on the roster this year are motivated to make things work, and put together some winning football.

Will Daniel Jones start for the NY Giants against the Patriots?
Heading into this one, people are wondering whether or not fourth-year quarterback Daniel Jones will be getting the start in this one for the G-Men. Well, Daboll has said that his starters will take the field, but we shouldn’t expect Jones and Co. to be out there for too long. Perhaps the first quarter?
That remains to be seen, but Jones should be leading out the first-team offense out onto the field against the Pats. The hope is that Jones can make some strong throws and not record any turnovers. The signal-caller is in need of a strong preseason to get people off his back. Let’s hope things start strong for him against New England.
