Brian Daboll is making his debut as Giants head coach and starting quarterback Daniel Jones figures to see little time in the opener, if any. The backups are Tyrod Taylor and Davis Webb and they will see the bulk of the action in this game. Taylor has been in the NFL since 2011 with six teams, and last season completed 60.7 percent for 966 yards with five touchdowns and five interceptions for the Houston Texans. Webb was drafted in 2017, but has appeared in just one game and that was last year when he didn't attempt a pass. The Giants were 4-13 in 2021 and are in another rebuilding phase while losing much of the starting secondary. New England finished 10-7 with Mac Jones enjoying a fine rookie season although he is not expected to play in this game, and the backups are Brian Hoyer and Bailey Zappe. The Patriots are putting some new schemes in their offense this year with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels having gone to the Raiders. Hoyer is a 13-year veteran, who played in five games last year and completed 9 of 11 for 227 yards and a touchdown. Zappe set FBS season records for passing yards and passing TDs while playing for Western Kentucky last year and should see a lot of playing time against the Giants. The underdog has covered the last five preseason meetings and New England has covered its last three preseason openers. Bill Belichick is 59-45 straight up and 52-45-7 ATS in preseason. Take the Patriots.
