SECOND TIME OUT
After opening the preseason with a loss to the Jets at home, the Giants made their first road trip of the season to Ohio, where they will face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at 1 p.m. The teams' preseason series is tied, at 9-9. They last met in the preseason on Aug. 9, 2018, a 20-10 Browns victory in New Jersey. The Giants' most recent preseason visit to Cleveland was on Aug. 21, 2017, when they lost, 10-6.
Joe Judge and Kevin Stefanski, a pair of second-year head coaches who grew up close to each other in the Philadelphia area, gathered their teams this week at the Cleveland's practice facility in Berea, Ohio. They held joint practices on Thursday and Friday, which provided a change of pace for both teams in the dog days of training camp.
"I thought our conditioning as a team looked good," Judge said of the joint practices. "That was an encouraging thing right there. Really, you've got to get a factor on that when you really start stacking up against other teams in seeing where your team is. I don't think as a coach you ever feel fully confident in where your team is conditioning-wise until you can measure it against somebody else on a field for a duration of time. In terms of where we are, I mean look, training camp's not what it used to be. The duration is different. The ramp up is different. You try to push your team to make sure they can stay on the field healthy and then play effectively for 60 minutes with good football position and fundamentals."
The Giants will arrive home Sunday night, and on Tuesday, they will hit the road again, to New England for two days of practice with the Patriots. The teams will meet in the preseason finale in MetLife Stadium on Aug. 29.
