The New York Giants end their 2012 preseason the way they ended the 2011 season -- facing the New England Patriots. when the team meet Wednesday (7 p.m. ET) at MetLife Stadium, there is certain to be discussion of the 2012 Super Bowl. This game, though, won't look anything like that.

Starters are likely to play very little, if at all, as both teams prepare to open the regular season. The Giants open Wednesday, Sept. 5 in the NFL Kickoff game against the NFC East-rival Dallas Cowboys.

Roster have been trimmed to 75 and must be trimmed to the regular-season limit of 53 by 9 p.m. ET on Friday night. This is one final showcase for players who are trying to show they belong on the team.

"There’s going to be ample playing time for a lot of people who are in position to prove whether or not they can help us. People that we can utilize their skill level. They have another opportunity against another good opponent to prove this, and there is going to be a lot of playing time for these people, whether they’re young, they’re rookies, whatever status they are," said Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. "Opportunities for them to truly prove that they can contribute. From that standpoint, we’re always looking and always evaluating and always challenging. And there will be some tremendous challenges."
