Brady Plays Two Series In Final Preseason Game Against The Giants

Manning, Brady solid in finale tuneup


AP Sports Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Eli Manning and Tom Brady were

solid in their final tuneups for the regular season.

And Rhett Bomar may have nailed down the job as the New York

Giants' backup quarterback, throwing a 60-yard scoring pass to Duke

Calhoun with 1:49 to play as the Giants rallied for a 20-17 victory

over the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

The winning score came just minutes after Darnell Jenkins put

the Patriots ahead 17-12 by catching a short pass from Brian Hoyer

and turning it into a 66-yard scoring play with one move and a

burst of speed.

The good news for both teams was they came out the preseason

finale relatively healthy.

New England (2-2) will host Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco and

the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 12. The Giants (2-2) will open at

home against Carolina in their new $1.6 billion stadium.
