The New York Giants play the New York Jets in the second preseason game for both teams on Saturday night at MetLife Stadium. Giants coach Tom Coughlin has a loooooooooong list of areas in which he wants to see improvement following a 32-31 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week in the team's preseason opener.
"There were 10 of them at the beginning of the week," Coughlin said. "There probably could have been 12 or 14. The physical nature of the run and stop the run certainly is one right off the bat. The penalty issue, which was ridiculous. Obviously, ball security in the special teams area because that’s been an area… field position, field position lectures, the special teams’ big plays and what it does for a team, which we’ve been lacking in the return game; all those things have been a part of our objectives all along. We had a nice kickoff return the other night, but we put two balls on the ground. We need to shore that up real fast."
Due to a rash of injuries and one performance-based cut (Janzen Jackson) there will be several players making their Giants' debuts Saturday. Those include Laron Scott (CB/KR), Carlton Powell (DT), Marcus Thomas (DT) and Oren Wilson (DT).
No official word from the Giants as to players who will not suit up. Based on who has practiced and who has not, however, here is a pretty good guess at guys who will sit this one out.
Marvin Austin (DT/Back), Will Beatty (OT/Back), Michael Boley (LB/Hamstring), Michael Coe (CB/Hamstring), Jim Cordle (C/Knee), Jacquain Williams (LB/Hip)
Here is your broadcast information. This is a Jets home game, so if you are watching in the New York area you get the Jets broadcast. There is no televised Giants broadcast.
