THE TEAM NEWS

NEW YORK GIANTS

  • New York Giants struggled defensively as they were unable to keep Minnesota at bay and slipped to their first loss in three games with a tough trip to reigning Super Bowl champions New England making it difficult for them to return to winning ways.
  • The Giants were desperate to have RB Saquon Barkley back for this contest after back-up Wayne Gallman was concussed against the Vikings but it looks as though this game will come too soon for Barkley as he continues to work his way back to fitness.
  • Gallman looks set to be ruled out and he should be joined on the sidelines by WR Sterling Shepard who suffered a second concussion in the space of a month which could mean an extended period without playing.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

  • New England Patriots overcame a lacklustre start against Washington Redskins to claim a comfortable victory and improve to 5-0, and they will look to maintain their winning streak to begin the season as they host New York Giants.
  • Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett will not have much time to prove his fitness after picking up a hamstring injury on Sunday and he missed the first two practices of the week which places his status in doubt ahead of this TNF contest.
  • Fellow WRs Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon have also been limited at practice in the early part of the week, with the former continuing to nurse a chest problem, but Edelman has not missed any game time so far whilst Gordon is dealing with a knee issue.

THE PREDICTION

New England remained unbeaten to begin the season as they defeated Washington and they will be confident of improving to 6-0 as they host New York Giants. The Giants struggled against Minnesota last time out and a trip to the reigning Super Bowl champions and are set to be without a handful of offensive stars. The Patriots’ defense has been impressive so far and that will spell trouble for the Giants with the home side able to claim a comfortable win.
