The NFL’s preseason is finally coming to an end: later today, the New England Patriots will visit the New York Giants for both teams’ fourth and final exhibition contest of the year. As usual, star players and roster locks are expected to sit out the contest which will give the depth players plenty of opportunities to prove themselves one last time before roster cutdowns start.
