The New England Patriots are facing the New York Giants in the final preseason game of 2016. Quarterback Tom Brady is expected to start, which will not help the collective blood pressure in the New England region, but it's also the players that aren't suiting up that make the game interesting. Kick off is at 7:00 pm EST.

Most of these players are considered roster locks, but WEEI's Chris Price has made an interesting note that the Patriots very rarely cut a player that does not take the field in the final preseason game.
So players like WR Chris Harper, CB Cre'Von LeBlanc, and OG Jonathan Cooper have to feel pretty confident about their potential roster spot.
We will also get our first look at linebacker Barkevious Mingo, which will be a lot of fun to watch.
