Patriots Vs. Giants Final Score: New York Squeaks Past New England, 6-3

After about two minutes of nail-biting in anticipation of an unnecessary preseason overtime game, the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 6-3 in each team's final dress rehearsal before Week 1 of the NFL season.

Tied 3-3 until the final minute of play, Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes sealed the victory with a 32-yard field goal with 1:03 remaining in the game.

The field goal came on the heels of a game-changing turnover when Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer was sacked and fumbled the ball, which was then picked up by Giants defensive tackle Marcus Thomas. The lineman marched down the field into enemy territory, and from there the Giants were able to bleed clock and position Tynes for an easy game-winning kick.

On the Patriots' final possession, Hoyer attempted to hit a home run with a 45-yard pass to the end zone, but the heave was picked off by the Giants' Laron Scott.

The Patriots finished the preseason 1-3, while the Giants ended 2-2.
