three takeaways from Giants 23-21 Precision Win Over Patriots Thursday Night in Foxborough, Mass.:
Can Gary Brightwell keep running back as No. 3? He looked quick with six runs for 24 yards and two catches for 19 yards. He made a quick effort as a rookie last season and can play in special teams.
a brief glimpse

there is a catch
WR Collin Johnson has put together a strong training camp in his quest to make the cut, and he used his size and speed in seven receptions for 83 yards in the first half. But he lost the ball on a fumble, a strike against him.
