The New England Patriots are getting ready for their final tune-up of the 2017 season as they host the New York Giants at Gillette Stadium for a pre-season game.

Barring a last minute decision, Jacoby Brissett will start the game and is expected to play the majority of the contest.  This will also be the last chance for bubble players to impress Bill Belichick and his staff before cut-down day on Saturday.  Maine's Trevor Bates is also expected to play in the contest in the linebacker core for New England
