By scoring a touchdown with four seconds left in the game, the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 31-29 Thursday night at Gillette Stadium.
Quarterback Kyle Lauletta completed a 70-yard run with a four-yard stint at Alonzo Russell in the pay zone. This was the second major of both men.
Lauletta finished with 22 assists in 40 attempts for 248 yards.
For their part, the "Pats" collected 26 points in the second quarter only. During this engagement, the receiver of passes Demaryius Thomas walked twice the goal zone.
The 31-year-old was playing his first game in 2019. He finally captured seven of the eight relays sent to him for a total of 87 yards.
Receiver Josh Gordon also played his first game, which saw his suspension lifted by the NFL nearly two weeks ago.
The latter did less well than his teammate, catching only two of the six passes sent in his direction. He still crossed 30 yards.
The Bills too
In Buffalo, the Bills also found the end zone in the final seconds of the last quarter, allowing them to beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-23.
Tyree Jackson quarterback found David Sills on eight yards, which sealed the outcome of the game. Jackson had scored a major over a six-yard run four minutes earlier. Between these two successes, Marcus Murphy returned a punt for 79 yards into the end zone.
The pivot of the Bills played the whole game, completing 22 of his 33 passes attempted for gains of 175 yards.
As a result of the win, the Buffalo team completed their pre-season schedule with a 4-0 record, while the Vikings suffered a first setback in four bouts.
