Both the New England Patriots and New York Giants played a slightly sloppy third quarter, with no scoring. But as the fourth quarter started, the Giants caught a napping Patriots defense to score their first touchdown of the game.
The Giants Da’ Rel Scott ran 65 yards with barely any Patriots around him to score a touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter. Rhys Lloyd kicked the extra point.
Brian Hoyer finished his evening near the end of the third quarter. He went 3 for 5, with 31 passing yards on the night. Rookie Ryan Mallett will take the remainder of the Patriots’ preseason snaps.
