THIS WEEK vs. PATRIOTS
THE LAST TIME vs. PATRIOTS The Giants wrapped up the 2010 preseason with
a 20-17 victory over the New England Patriots. Quarterback Eli Manning and the first team
executed Big Blue’s finest drive of the preseason, moving 86 yards in nine plays, including a 13-yard TD pass to tight end Kevin Boss. Following Thomas Clayton's 55-yard kickoff return to the Giants' 45-yard line, Tom Brady and the Patriots first team offense covered the remaining territory in eight plays, including a five-yard TD pass to Rob Gronkowski. A successful extra point gave New England a 7-6 edge.
After an Antrel Rolle interception, an exchange of field goals, Tynes from 24 yards and Stephen Gostkowski from 46 yards, in the second the Patriots led10-9 halftime.
The Giants took possession at the 50 after Jonathan Goff intercepted Brian Hoyer's pass for Laurence Maroney. Tynes' second 24-yard field goal gave the Giants their third lead, 12-10, in the third quarter.
DeAngelo Willingham intercepted a Rhett Bomar pass early in fourth quarter, and three plays later Darnell Jenkins scampered for a 66-yard score, giving the Patriots a 17-12 lead.
On the first play after the two-minute warning, Duke Calhoun caught a Bomar pass at the Patriots' 43- yard line and ran through the entire secondary without being touched. Gartrell Johnson ran the ball in for the two- point conversion and the Giants won 20-17.

LOSSES TO SECONDARY
GIANTS CONNECTIONS DYNAMIC DUO
PROTECTION IS KEY
Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck tied for the team lead with 11.5 sacks apiece in 2010, the first time the Giants had two players with at least that many sacks since 2005, when Umenyiora had 14.5 and Michael Strahan finished with 11.5. Umenyiora also led the league with 10 forced fumbles, tying Jason Taylor’s record set in 2006 with Miami. The stat has been kept since 1994.
The New York Giants welcome a new coach in the 2011 season. After a legendary 14-year career that included three Super Bowl championships and three Pro Bowl appearances, Larry Izzo, 36, will assist Giants special teams coordinator Tom Quinn. He replaces Thomas McGaughey, who left the Giants this spring to become the special teams coordinator at LSU.
Eli Manning was not sacked in seven games in the 2010 season. The Giants allowed only 16 sacks all season, including four in the last nine games. That shattered the previous team record in a 16-game
