Last week, Giants’ head coach Joe Judge held joint practices with a guy that beat him out for a starting quarterback spot in high school at Philadelphia’s St. Joe’s Prep. That ‘’guy’ was Browns’ head coach Kevin Stefanski. Now, Judge will face for the first time, albeit in a preseason capacity, the coach who gave him his first NFL job back in 2012, Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick. 

The two were able to organize joint practices this week. While the Giants are coming off a week in Cleveland with the Browns, the Patriots are coming off a week in Philadelphia with the Eagles. For the Pats, that week ended with a 35-0 stomping of the Eagles. The Giants didn’t fare as well in the “Dog Pound”, falling to the Browns 17-12 dropping their preseason record to 0-2. However, help looks to be on the way for the Giants. 

Daniel Jones, New York’s number one quarterback is expected to make his preseason debut Sunday. Judge said earlier in the week that Jones will play the first half and possibly some of the third quarter. Mike Glennon has taken the majority of the snaps for the Giants this preseason. 

As the Giants get their number one signal caller back on the field, the Patriots may have taken a big step Wednesday in trying to figure out who their QB1 will be. Cam Newton has started both games for New England to this point, but missed the first three days of joint practices with the Giants after he was put in COVID Protocol. According to a Patriots press release, Newton was “subject to a five-day entry cadence process before returning to the facility” after traveling outside the New England area. While Newton has only been allowed to participate in virtual team activities through Wednesday, rookie first-round pick Mac Jones has been turning heads in actual team activities. The fifteenth overall pick in April’s draft reportedly had his way with the Giants secondary and with a good performance Sunday could wrap up the Pats’ starting job.

The Giants host the Patriots as 3.5-point home underdogs. The over/under is 35.5.
