Best Of Social Media: Preseason Week 3 Patriots vs GiantsVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots wrapped up their 2021 preseason schedule with a trip to New Jersey to take on the New York Giants.

While numerous starters were ruled out for the game, the finale remained one final opportunity for bubble players to make their cases to Bill Belichick and the coaching staff before the final roster cuts began on Monday.

Take a look at how the game unfolded through the best social media sights and sounds shared across social media from both the players and various media outlets.

In the first quarter, the Patriots defense dominated the Giants offensive line, creating pressure from all angles on quarterback Daniel Jones.

A 41 yard field goal by Nick Folk gave the Patriots the early 3-0 lead.

On the offensive side of the ball, Cam Newton struggled during his first quarter of reps, finishing his day 2 of 5 for 10 yards and an interception.

During the second quarter, it appeared the Giants were finally going to get on the scoreboard, but D’Angelo Ross had other ideas.

Quarterback Mac Jones would take over for Cam Newton in the second quarter.

A Quinn Nordin 48 yard field goal extended the Patriots lead to 6-0, but just before halftime Kaden Smith found the end zone following a 23 yard pass from Daniel Jones to give the Giants a 7-6 lead heading into halftime.

As the second half began, the Patriots running game continued to shine as they had all summer and helped setup a Mac Jones touchdown to Isaiah Zuber to give New England the lead back at 12-7.

Midway through the third, who else but Rhamondre Stevenson?

During the fourth quarter, Giants quarterback Mike Glennon recorded two touchdown passes but the Patriots held on for a 22-20 victory to end the preseason 3-0.
