The New England Patriots turn their attention to the New York Giants in a Thursday Night Football matchup at Gillette Stadium.
Last Sunday, the New England Patriots defeated the Washington Redskins 33-7 and now face two opponents at the same time: the 2-3 New York Giants, and a short preparation work week (Sunday to Thursday). While Thursday Night Football contests are great for fans, they certainly present a slew of challenges to players, coaches, and staffers on NFL teams.
New England enters Week 6 with a perfect 5-0 record, and remain one of two undefeated teams in the NFL – the other being Jimmy Garoppolo’s San Francisco 49ers.

Here are four key points to keep an eye on when the New England Patriots take the field at Gillette Stadium tonight against the New York Giants.
