Garoppolo Starts Preseason Finale
Tonight is the final dress rehearsal for the New England Patriots 2014 season, and the final chance for some to make the team.The Pats are in New York tonight for the preseason finale against the Giants who have yet to lose this summer. With most of the starters expected to sit out tonight’s matchup, rookie quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will make the start for the Patriots as he tries to unseat Ryan Mallett for the back-up spot to Tom Brady. Over the last several years New Engand has only kept two quarterbacks on the roster which has made for a competitive preseason for that position.
The other position to watch is the left guard spot that was formally occupied by Logan Mankins who was traded to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. A couple guys to keep an eye on are Josh Kline and Jordan Devey. Both spent last year on the practice squad but have seen lots of action during camp.
Remember that you can hear the game live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket with coverage starting at 4:30pm.
