The Giants are coming off a 6-10 year that saw them finish second in the NFC East. Saquon Barkley missed in Week 2 with a torn ACL, and the offense struggled without him. Daniel Jones only threw for 11 touchdowns without Barkley, racking up 12 turnovers in the process.

However, Jones could be ready for a season of recovery, given the increased talent around him. The Giants signed Kenny Golladay and drafted Kadarius Toney this season, and both will play a big role this season.

Despite how poor the offense was, New York's defense was impressive and improved down the stretch. The G-Men allowed just over 20 points per game in the last 11 weeks, which was one of the best. James Bradberry and Jabrill Peppers, two Pro-Bowl-caliber defenders, have led this team since high school.

Doubts about the depth of the Giants were frequent last season, so they could have problems in the preseason. However, they improved over the summer, and these concerns have subsided.

The Jets , meanwhile, were the second worst football team last year with a 2-14 record that was last in the AFC East. They have had a losing record every year since 2015, with a season of 7-9 in 2019 being the highest mark.

New York handed over the keys to the franchise to Zach Wilson this offseason, and he will start immediately. His main target will be Corey Davis, a former Tennessee Titans , who was signed this offseason.

Tevin Coleman and Michael Carter (another rookie) will split the duties in the backfield after Frank Gore was not rehired. The Jets only had nine career touchdowns all of last season, so an upgrade from the new backfield will be required.

The Jets defense was not good last year, to put it mildly. Quinnen Williams and CJ Mosley are his two best players, but even they couldn't save New York's porous defense . The team allowed the fifth-most passing yards per game and was always on the field due to offensive difficulties.

Like the Giants , the Jets are not known as a team that has a lot of depth. Still, it's preseason, and his top draft picks will be eager to impress at their first chances.
