The New England Patriots are in Jersey for their preseason finale against the New York Giants tonight.

Tom Brady won’t play nor half the starters, so who do you watch? Well, we got you covered.

1. QB Jimmy Garoppolo: Garoppolo will start and finish the game tonight barring no injury. We finally get to see the rookie through out the entire game with some starters and against some starters of the Giants. He will face off against the Giants defense and Eli Manning, who will play tonight. The interest in watching Jimmy tonight is simple, how well can he do for an entire game.

2. CB Malcolm Butler: Butler is not only only battling to make the roster, which he’s pretty much a lock too, but also battling for the chance to start opposite Revis while Browner serves his 4 game suspension. Arrington, Ryan, and Dennard will all play and have a chance to make their case for that number 2 role.

3. The Safety Battle: This will be coming to close tonight and I have no idea who will win. Harmon, Chung, or Wilson. This is worth watching because tonight one will be cut, one will start, and one will be depth.

4. The Linebackers: We have our starters in place but who will give the Pats depth? Steve Beauharnais, Darius Fleming, James Morris and Ja’Gared Davis will all have a chance to state their case tonight. Beauharnais is the favorite to make the team and provide backup, he leads all NFL teams with 21 tackles this preseason and has an interception. Morris is a favorite among the coaches. Fleming can be a situational guy. 

5. DL Jerel Worthy: He’s still on the team after the Patriots released Tommy Kelly and Ben Bass. Worthy had a good preseason debut last week and now will be looked at even more closely. Can he prove he belongs and be the guy Belichick is hoping he will be? He’s a must watch tonight.
