(East Rutherford, NJ) -- The New England Patriots are finishing the 2021 NFL preseason with a perfect record after a 22-to-20 win over the New York Giants on the road Sunday evening. The Pats went 3-and-0. The league shortened the preseason by one game and increased the number of regular season games from 16 to 17 this year. Cam Newton only saw limited action last night, which is leading pundits to predict him as the Week 1 starter. Mac Jones notched his first and only passing touchdown of the preseason versus the Giants, going 10 for 14 and picking up 156 yards. The Patriots open the regular season at home versus the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, September 12th at 4:25 p.m.
