Giants vs Patriots Live:Rookie Daniel Jones and the New York Giants will be looking to get back on track, but they face a tall task as they head into Foxborough to meet the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football. Jones lost his first game as a starter last Sunday when the Giants struggled with a running game still missing star Saquon Barkley (ankle) in a loss to the Vikings. Barkley and backup Wayne Gallman (concussion) are both out on Thursday. Meanwhile, ageless Tom Brady and the Patriots’ defense didn’t miss a beat in dismantling the Redskins, costing Jay Gruden his job. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots are 17-point favorites in the latest Patriots vs. Giants odds, up a half-point from the opener, while the over-under for total points scored is 41.5. Before you commit to any Giants vs. Patriots picks, you need to read the NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
What to Know
After two games on the road, New England is heading back home. They will take on the Giants at 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday at Gillette Stadium. New England is currently enjoying a five-game winning streak and is looking to extend their dominance.
The Patriots made easy work of Washington last week and carried off a 33-7 win. RB Sony Michel and QB Tom Brady were among the main playmakers for New England as the former rushed for 91 yards and one TD on 16 carries and the latter passed for 348 yards and three TDs on 42 attempts. Brady didn’t help his team much against Buffalo two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
Meanwhile, after a dominant victory in their game, the Giants were humbled. They lost to Minnesota by a decisive 28-10 margin. If the Giants were hoping to take revenge for the 24-10 defeat against Minnesota the last time the teams met, then they were left disappointed.
The Patriots are the favorite in this one, with an expected 17-point margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team’s contest last week, where they covered a 16.5-point spread.
New England’s victory lifted them to 5-0 while the Giants’ loss dropped them down to 2-3. We’ll find out if the Patriots can add another positive mark to their record or if the Giants can shake off the loss and take the spring out of New England’s step.
