The New England Patriots know to tuck away that football Sunday against the New York Giants.
The Giants lead the NFL in turnover differential at plus-11. They have a league-best 20 total takeaways and just nine giveaways. The Patriots are second in the NFL with plus-seven, with a league-best five giveaways and 12 takeaways.
The Giants have recovered seven fumbles and recorded 13 interceptions. The Patriots have lost just three fumbles and quarterback Tom Brady has thrown two interceptions.
Protecting the football is key against the Giants. If the Patriots can avoid mistakes, they should have no problem winning this weekend.
Check out this week’s three offensive keys in the video above.
