Some people might say that preseason games don’t mean much, but that didn’t stop things from taking a violent turn down in New Jersey last week when the Patriots visited the Giants in the preseason finale.

In the game the Giants handed the Patriots their first loss of the exhibition season, beating New England 17-9 at MetLife stadium.

It should have been a happy time for Giants fans, but things still took a wrong turn outside the stadium, with a group of fans getting involved in a violent scuffle that was caught on video.

(Warning: NSFW, Language, Violent Content:)

Obviously given the fact the only two Super Bowl loss of the Bill Belichick era came at the hands of the Giants, clearly there’s no love lost between the two fan bases.  But violence after a preseason game seems pretty pointless, and it’s certainly something that you never like to see regardless of how it was started or what was said.
