Patriots vs Giants

Davis Webb has thrown the most passes of any Giants quarterback this preseason (53) and has the only touchdown pass, a catch-and-run by running back Wayne Gallman. Webb bounced back from a lousy opening game vs. Cleveland to re-establish himself as the No. 2 behind Eli Manning.

Webb will be under a real challenge from rookie Kyle Lauletta, who has looked more poised than Webb at times even though he’s only thrown 16 passes this summer.

It’s a shame there will be no room for Alex Tanney. He’s looked very good at times in practice and in game action, and has been a positive in the quarterback room.

If Webb plays well in this game, it will go a long way to solidifying his status as the No. 2, but keep an eye on Lauletta. He is one the new regime drafted. Webb is the the quarterback they inherited. This battle is far from over. It may go on for years.

The New York Giants host the New England Patriots in their annual preseason showdown Thursday night at MetLife Stadium. It is the 14th consecutive year the two teams have met in the final week of preseason.

And, as the final preseason game before cutdown day on Saturday, there are plenty of jobs on the line to be determined. Coach Pat Shurmur has been very cagey about revealing who will play and for how long during the preseason, but it’s a good assumption that many starters, if not all, will sit this one out.

Here’s what we’ll be focusing on in this game.
