2. NY Giants starting offensive line looked great together
Despite only playing together for the starting drive, the NY Giants starting offensive line looked very good – with Daniel Jones facing almost no pressure for the entirety of that drive.
It is somewhat unfortunate that the Giants only stuck with the starting offensive line for one possession. However, it was smart to pull some of the starters after Shane Lemieux went down with a toe injury.
Following the first possession, the NY Giants subbed out some of their starting offensive line, which is when they finally gave up a sack to Josh Uche. Evan Neal looked a little shaky at times, ending up on the ground after a couple of blocks. Despite this, there is no reason to be worried, as Neal is a rookie who was forced to switch positions.
As for the rest of the unit, they played very well together. If this can continue for the remainder of the preseason, NY Giants fans should be very excited about the future of the line.
Obviously the Patriots did not play their starters on defense, which makes it hard to judge just how well the offensive line really played. However, compared to what we have seen in the past, there is reason to be excited about this new offensive line unit.
