FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- At an initial glance, here's a look at players whose performance stood out in the New England Patriots' preseason finale against the New York Giants, and others at the opposite end of the spectrum:
Michael Buchanan: Rookie defensive end shows up with a few nice rushes and reaches up to bat down a pass.
Aaron Dobson: Rookie receiver doesn't seem to fight hard enough for an underthrown Mallett pass in the end zone that is intercepted and then overturned on replay when it is determined Prince Amukamara didn't stay in bounds.
Leon Washington: Fumbles punt that is recovered by the Giants in the third quarter. Although a 43-yard return in the second quarter is solid.
