Remember, the Giants went 5-0 last preseason thanks mostly to some late-game heroics from Corey Washington and other players who either didn't make the final roster or didn't make an impact during the real games. It isn't the final score that matters in these games. It is the trends you see, especially from the guys who are going to play when it counts.
Here are a couple of other key dates.
Sept. 1 -- Rosters trimmed from 90 to 75 players
Sept. 5 -- Rosters trimmed to regular-season limit of 53 players
Sept. 6 -- Practice squad of 10 players can be formed
