Welcome to Week Six Live Blog! Your 5-0 New England Patriots host the 2-3 New York Giants at Gillette Stadium tonight in what could be a blowout. The Giants are extremely banged up. They are missing starters all throughout their offense. They’re led by rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, who will have his hands full facing the best defense in the NFL.

The Patriots have some issues with their passing game, so not everything is perfect in Foxboro. Tom Brady will try to get on the same page with his weapons, but the most important thing is protection. The offensive line has been very inconsistent due to the injuries the Patriots have dealt with over the first half of the season.

We are less than one hour from game time, so get yourself squared away with whatever you have to do to pregame. Fire up that TV, open a tab for the Week Six Live Blog, and enjoy the game! We will post the inactive players in about 15 minutes. Enjoy the game, and don’t be afraid to leave a comment on the blog.

Inactive 

Patriots- OL Korey Cunningham, DL Byron Cowart, RB Rex Burkhead, RB Damien Harris, QB Cody Kessler, WR Phillip Dorsett, CB JoeJuan Williams

Giants- RB Saquon Barkley, RB Wayne Gallman, TE Evan Engram, WR Sterling Shepard, LB Tae Davis,DT Eric Smith, G Chad Slade

Those first four players listed for the Giants are basically their best offensive skill players. Needless to say that this might be a tough night for the Giants offense.

FIRST QUARTER

15:00- The Patriots take the opening kickoff and return it to the 30. The offense will start their first series.

14:49- Michel runs for four; 2nd & 6…

14:13- Michel picks up 19 on the catch, something they need to do more to get defenders out of the box when he is in the backfield. 1st & 10…

13:43- Bolden, who runs HARD, runs for 22 off tackle; 1st & 10 from the Giants 28…

13:06- Gordon picks up seven on the catch; 2nd & 3…

12:31- Michel runs right into a pile up front; 3rd & 1…

11:57- This team struggles in short yardage; Michel runs for nothing, 4th & 1…

11:15- The offensive line is simply not good enough right now. It didn’t look like he got the 1st, and he didn’t. That is horrible offensive line play. The had two downs to gain THREE FEET and they couldn’t do it. Time to stop worrying about trading for a wide receiver and change that focus to a tackle that can block. 1st & 10, Giants, who now have ALL the momentum in a game the Patriots should win by 40.

11:05- Gain of nine on 1st down for NY; 2nd & 1…

10:30- No gain; 3rd & 1..

9:52- Wow, this defense is no joke. They allow nine yards on first down, and then they slammed the door shut to force the punt; 4th & 1…great punt, and the Patriots offense will take over at their own 20. 1st & 10…

9:37- Sack. Wow, this O-line is really bad so far; 2nd & 17…

8:55- Gain of seven by Meyers; 3rd & 10…

8:05- Three and out for New England and the punt is fair caught at the Giants 28. 1st & 10, Giants…

7:51- Hillman runs for three; 2nd & 7…

7:08- INTERCEPTION!! Simon picks off the deflection and sets up the offense with decent field position. Gilmore with the strong PBU that led to the pick; 1st & 10, Patriots…

6:47- Aaaaand Brady throws it right back to them on either a terrible throw or bad communication. Awful start; Brady is terrible against the Giants, even when he isn’t getting pressured. That pass should have been a completion. 1st & 10, Giants…

6:44- McCourty with strong run support; 2nd & 9…

6:09- Hillman runs for four; 3rd & 5…

5:30- Gilmore drops the pick on the slant, but the Patriots still get the stop. Olszewski made the fair catch at the Patriots 10. Can the Patriots offense actually get something going against this 30th ranked Giants defense? Are the Giants Tom Brady’s kryptonite? I have so many questions. I wonder if they’ll be answered in the next drive. 1st & 10…

5:18- Dropped pass, Michel; 2nd & 10…

5:14- Gain of one by White; this is ugly. 3rd & 9…

4:31- Flags everywhere on a completion for what should be a first down…and it is a first down because both penalties were on the Giants. 1st & 10…

4:15- Michel runs for three; 2nd & 7…

3:43- Edelman appeared to fumble, but the Giants lost the challenge. The Patriots are forced to punt, again. 1st & 10, Giants…

3:25- Van Noy with the tackle for no gain, just missing a sack; 2nd & 10…

3:02- One yard gain as the Giants are trying to rush up and make a play…didn’t work. 3rd & 9…

2:18- No gain on the screen pass (Giants jumped, wasn’t called) and the Patriots come up with another three-and-out.

1:41- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Bolden pushed the personnel protector back into the punt and forced the deflection which was caught and returned for a touchdown by rookie defensive end Chase Winovich. This team is very talented on defense and specials, which they need to make up for their aging offense. Nugent connected on the extra point; Patriots 7, Giants 0

1:33- First down reception for Slaton, the first of the night. 1st & 10…

1:10- Three yard gain on the ground; 2nd & 7…

:20- Pass is complete on the slant for 10 yards and another first down. Daniel Jones looks legit. That is the end of the first quarter, a quarter the Patriots offense really struggled in, but again they were picked up by the defense. Patriots 7, Giants 0

SECOND QUARTER

15:00- Pass was overthrown on a play that Slaton had a step; 2nd & 10…

14:48- Ellison with the catch for five; 3rd & 5…

14:06- Jonathan Jones breaks up the pass to force the punt. The Giants were called for illegal formation, so the Patriots will start from their own 15. 1st & 10…

13:52- Edelman with the catch for 15; 1st & 10…

13:17- Olszewski with a gain of five on the catch; 2nd & 5…

12:44- White with the catch on the bubble screen; 1st & 10…

12:09- Michel gains three on a play that looked like it could have gone for much more; 2nd & 7…

11:26- Once again, bad blocking. No gain; 3rd & 7…

10:53- Brady throws it behind Izzo; this is hard to watch tonight. Did I ever tell you all how much I HATE Thursday Night Football? Yuck. Patriots 7, Giants 0

10:42- Gain of six on first down; 2nd & 4…

10:08- Gain of four, and the Giants pick up another first down…

9:26- INTERCEPTION, PATRIOTS!! Harmon makes the play after Simon hits Jones’s arm on the throw. 1st & 10, Patriots, from the Giants 20…

9:19- Brady drops the snap, then almost throws a pick; 2nd & 10…

9:11- Meyers with the catch at the two; that was a beautiful catch. 1st & Goal…

8:29- Bolden for one in an area that is not a strong point right now; 2nd & Goal…

7:35- Brady stuffed; 3rd & Goal…

7:11- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Bolden pushes it in, finally. The extra point is good, and the Patriots, who have NOT played well on offense, lead by two touchdowns. Patriots 14, Giants 0

7:06- Tate picks up seven on the catch; 2nd & 3…

6:04- Touchdown, Giants. 64-yard touchdown catch and run by Golden Tate. Where is the safety help on that play? Patriots 14, Giants 7

5:57- Edelman picks up 24 on the play-action pass; 1st & 10…

5:09- Great tackle by Haley on Edelman; 2nd & 12…

4:39- Touchdown, Giants. Brady holds the ball forever, and is strip-sacked which leads to a touchdown. Here is the kicker- Josh Gordon raced down the field to make the play, and appeared to injure his leg, possibly seriously. The Patriots should be ashamed of themselves tonight. Unprepared, and it is obvious they took these guys lightly. We are allowed to do that in the media; they are not allowed to do that though. Giants 14, Patriots 14

9:16- Collins makes the tackle after a gain of one; 3rd & 9…

8:32- FUMBLE RECOVERED BY NEW ENGLAND! Van Noy returned it for what appeared to be a touchdown, but he was marked out at the two. Bad spot, that was a score.

8:19- Gain of three on the run; 2nd & 7…

7:48- Tate picks up five; 3rd & 2…

7:08- Slaton is covered by Jackson well, forcing 4th down…4th & 2…and they’ll punt? Weird. 30-yard punt due to hurricane winds and the Patriots not only get the gift punt, but they also get strong field position. Patriots 28, Giants 14

6:13- Michel runs for four more; 2nd & 6…

2:59- Incomplete pass after the pressure by Calhoun; 3rd & 10…

2:52- Pass is broken up by Jones; 4th & 10… the Giants are challenging that there was interference, which there was. Most likely 1st & 10…and I’m dead wrong. 4th & 10…I could just delete that, but I’m keeping it real.

2:49- Incomplete pass on the great PBU by Gilmore, who has dominated tonight. 1st & 10, Patriots…

Thanks again for joining us this week! Be sure to join us next week when the Patriots take on the hated rival New York Jets on Monday Night Football. New England gets a mini-bye week with a Thursday-to-Monday game schedule, which will allow some of the banged-up guys to get healthy. Have a great week everyone! We’ll see you all next week.
