In a game that is a yearly snoozer, New York Giants safety, Stevie Brown, returns to the team to pick off a pass against the New England Patriots.
Tight end, Jerome Cunningham, could’ve easily earned a spot on the roster as the third-string tight end after an outstanding 33-yard catch.
Rookie sixth-round pick, Geremy Davis, caught a 40-yard pass down the sideline from quarterback, Ryan Nassib. Davis, is clearly on the roster bubble in a crowed Giants wide receiver group, so making a play like that definitely turned some heads.

Free agent acquisition, George Selvie, recorded two sacks in what was a very uplifting performance for a Giants defense that has looked very confused thus far in preseason.
Nassib, finished the game completing 16 of his 32 passes, and throwing for just 193 yards. Not impressive by any standards. Playing the entirety of the game with Eli Manning getting rest for week one against the Dallas Cowboys.
Eli said the offense is better than where it was at this point last year. #NYGvsNE

The highlights that I did point out, were exactly that, in what was a very bland performance for New York. The starting offensive line played the entire first quarter, which tells you all you need to know regarding where the team feels they stand as the regular season begins. The team takes on the Cowboys in week one, which is always an interesting matchup for both fanbases.NEXT: Bad Trends Turning Into identity for New York Giants
