The New York Giants will end their training camp and preseason this week with a game Thursday night against the New England Patriots before turning their full attention to the regular season.
For those on the border, there are still jobs to be won or lost, but with the release of the clock, a much clearer picture of the Giants in 2019 has come into focus.

Giants head coach Pat Schurmour has been repeating himself for more than a month, breaking the record for more than a month everyone to hear that Eli Manning will be the starting quarterback comes Week 1
The media keeps squeezing him, insisting that he has to lie and that there is some internal power struggle – this co-owner John Mara is forcing Eli over him.
Not only did Manning take every first team representative in training camp, he was ruled out for Thursday's preseason final against the New England Patriots, as Schurmur felt the need to keep his start safe.
Shurmur also received a rhythm test last week during their tireless interrogation of the reserve.
"I just said that Ellie was a starter. Didn't I just say it? Excuse the fact that I had to repeat it, but I felt I just said it," Shurmour said Friday after responding to the same exact question twice in a row.
Don't expect this question to stop. We are ready to guarantee that he will be asked again on Monday.
