The Giants Beat Press Box Report

The Giants Beat publisher Rick Laughland is live from the MetLife Stadium Press Box with three things to watch during the Giants/Jets preseason action.

What to Watch For

1. Manning Up

One completion in two preseason contests isn't going to cut it and Eli Manning knows it. The Giants signal-caller will need to make some plays against a suspect Jets secondary if he hopes to avoid fans across the country pushing the panic button even before the season begins.

2. Cruz Control

Victor Cruz hasn't exactly been dazzling during the preseason and has typified the Giants' offensive woes. The New Jersey native will need to give fans something to cheer about against a Jets team that he terrorized during the 2010 preseason, which jump-started his pro career.

3. Down with JPP?

The star defensive end hasn't been the same player since he underwent back surgery and Big Blue will need vintage Jason Pierre-Paul to be in full force if it hopes to make some noise this upcoming season.
