Patriots Vs. Giants: Patriots Take 10-3 Lead in First Quarter

The New England Patriots defense came up big early on in the first quarter of their preseason game against the New York Giants.

Patriot Patrick Chung jumped on a Domenik Hixon fumble on one of the game’s first plays, gaining the Pats prime field position right on the Giants one yard line. Quarterback Tom Brady handed the ball off to Benjarvus Green-Ellis on the next play for a short jog into the end zone to give the Pats the game’s first touchdown.

On the Patriots’ next drive, Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31 yard field goal to give them a 10-0 lead.

The Giants finally settled things down on their offense, and moved down the field to give kicker Rhys Lloyd a chance to boot a 48 yard field goal to get the Giants on the board.
