Patriots Vs. Giants: Giants Hold On To Late Lead For 18-17 Win

The New York Giants played a sloppy three quarters of football, as to be expected given they played a hurricane-delayed game just three days ago. But the Giants took a late lead on a fumble recovery and held on to take a 18-17 win in the last preseason game for both teams.

A Richard Medlin fumble allowed Giants safety Derrick Martin to run in for the game-tying score. Giants wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan barely caught a reception in bounds on the two-point conversion attempt to take the lead.

The Giants game within one touchdown of the Patriots after a fake punt attempt that started the fourth quarter. Da’ Rel Scott surprised every Patriots player on the field and ran 65 yards for a touchdown untouched.

Ryan Mallett played the entire fourth quarter at quarterback for the Patriots, and tried to lead a last minute scoring opportunity as time expired. Mallett was flustered by the Giants defense, and couldn’t get much going with his receivers. Mallett finished the night passing for 57 yards and completing 6 of 16 attempts.
