The New England Patriots have their by week this weekend. Their next game will be in eight days when they visit the New York Giants. Both teams are currently 2-8 through 10 games. The Giants visit Washington to take on the Commanders tomorrow afternoon. These two teams have been virtually identical this season, with stagnant offenses and multiple blowout losses. They would both select in the top three if the 2024 NFL Draft were held today.
Unlike Patriots coach Bill Belichick, it does not appear that Giants’ HC Brian Daboll’s job security is being questioned. They did make the playoffs last season, but it has been an ugly step backwards in 2023. New York QB Daniel Jones is done for the year, and possibly in New York for good if the team opts to replace him in the draft. New England QB Mac Jones might still have a chance to play out the season to save his job.
Either way, this is far from the marquee NFL matchup of Week 12. However, it will have major implications for the 2024 NFL Draft and possibly the future of both teams. Nothing is irrelevant in New England at the moment.

Today’s Tweet of the Day comes from Amelia Probst, who breaks down how the salary caps of NFL franchise have been affected by injuries in 2023…
I feel like there have been so many injuries this year, so I wanted to look into what percentage of the cap they are. This is my first iteration – I'll include players who were on IR short term in the future. Thanks to @PFF_Brad for the help! pic.twitter.com/nhuUQKGQn7
