Week 13 arrives with a whopping 16 teams with seven or more wins, the most ever in NFL history through 11 games. Unfortunately, the Giants (3-8) and their Week 13 opponent, the 1-10 Jacksonville Jaguars, are not in that group.

The Giants began the season with two quick losses but then won three straight, only to lose the next six. The Jags came out of the gate 0-5 before getting in the win column with a Week 6 victory at home against Cleveland. They have not won since.

That doesn't mean this game isn't worth watching. Both teams are at crossroads. The Jags are building around rookie QB Blake Bortles and a young group of receivers. The Giants are probably in the last year of the Tom Coughlin era and are poised for major changes in the upcoming offseason.

From SNYGiants columnist Jon Wagner:

After winning his second Super Bowl in five seasons with the New York Giants, head coach Tom Coughlin kicked off the defense of his team?s most recent world championship by returning to the place where he first made a name for himself as an NFL head coach, as the Giants lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 32-31 in the teams? preseason opener on Friday night.

As with all preseason games however, the final outcome didn?t really matter as much as the players? health and seeing how they performed. On that front, here is what the Giants? coaching staff probably took note of the most:

13 players sat out of last night's game due to either and injury or a physical issue. CB Terrell Thomas, OT Will Beatty, DT Rocky Bernard, LB Michael Boley, LB Jake Muasau, DE Justin Trattou, RB Da'Rel Scott, LB Jacquian Williams, DT Chris Canty, WR Hakeem Nicks, TE Travis Beckum and LB Clint Sintim were all expected to sit out.

WRs Domenik Hixon (hamstring) and David Douglas (quad) were late scratches. Ramses Barden started in place of Hixon. Douglas, who many had hoped to see after creating a stir at camp, was spelled by the group of other WR hopefuls.

Rookie Rueben Randle had two receptions; a 21-yarder and a six-yard pass from Ryan Perrilloux in the end zone. UDFA Julian Talley had two receptions for 22 yards and Isaiah Stanback made the play of the night reeling in a David Carr pass with one hand in the right corner of the end zone.

Head coach Tom Coughlin met the media after his Giants dropped their preseason opener to the Jaguars, 32-31:

(on turnovers)??We do the best we can and move forward. The number one thing is ball security as a punt returner.? The first thing you have to do is catch the ball. We also have a lot of people who quite frankly don?t know what they?re doing. They may have some talent and ability, but they?re going to have to spend some more time trying to figure out how to do what we?re asking them to do.?

(on if the problems in the return game are recurring forJerrel Jernigan??lt looked like he took his eye off of it. I didn?t see it. Give credit to the punter; he punts the ball very, very high, but all you have to do is signal fair catch and concentrate totally on catching the ball. You don?t have to go through all that.?

Giants coach Tom Coughlin summed up his team's victory over Jacksonville via conference call with reporters today...

"Just to again draw together yesterday afternoon, by looking again at the numbers between the first and second half, you can see the quality of the improvement from 92 yards gained by a good Jaguars team in the second half compared to what they did in the first half. I think that we did not stop the run, and for that being our number one objective, that was disappointing. In the first half, I didn't think we got an awful lot done there. We had some miscommunications. We had some alignments that were designed to stop specific runs that we didn't quite get communicated. That was disappointing."

- For the first time this year, the Giants did not turn the ball over. ?They still have not yet scored a touchdown on an opening drive. ?These are not characteristics of your typical 7-4 team, but I suppose the 2010 Giants are nothing close to typical.

- Eli Manning made some poor throws early in the game, but I have a hard time criticizing his performance seeing as he was playing with only two of his normal receivers, and his play in the second half of the game saved the season. ?I noticed a couple of times when his new receivers (Michael Clayton and Derek Hagan) clearly ran the wrong route, so Eli may still be adjusting to life without his two favorite targets.

- Mario Manningham had a nice game, and his statline should have been a lot better. ?His first touchdown catch was called back on a Kevin Boss hold, of which CBS showed no replay (Fox would have shown at least two replays...just saying...). ?He was also open on a couple of other plays, but Eli failed to get him the ball. ?Manningham and Boss (despite the hold) are stepping up when the team needs him to, but it should also be noted that the Jaguars have one of the worst secondaries I have seen over the past few years of watching NFL football.

Before I start, let me out-cliche everyone. A win is a win. There are no style points in the NFL. You are what your record says you are....yada yada yada....

The Giants won a game they were favored to win. At home. By four points. Big deal.? I am glad the Giants won. However, I am perplexed at their all-too-frequent lethargy.

Try this cliche....the ends do not always justify the means.....

from Jon Wagner....

Reminders of last year filled the New Meadowlands stadium on Sunday.

Giants? fans had seen this story before. A 5-0 start only to finish 3-8 and miss the playoffs last year, while losing home games against opponents the Giants should have beaten.

The Giants survived the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 24 to 20.

- After trailing 17-6 at halftime, the Giants outscored the Jags 18 to 3 in the second half.

- Eli Manning had a good game despite being without his best receivers. ?He completed 14 of 24 passes for 226 with two touchdowns and no interceptions. His go to receivers were familiar faces: Kevin Boss had 3 receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown, while Mario Manningham had 3 receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown.

The Giants came out flat again today.....the offense failing multiple times in the red zone and the defense bending but not breaking.

The Giants scored first on a Lawrence Tynes 22 yard FG, but gave that lead up on the next possession when Jacksonville drove 75 yards in 9 plays, taking the lead on a 5-yard TD run by Rashad Jennings.

Scobee hit a 22 yd FG on the next drive to extend the Jags lead to 10-3.

1. Maurice Jones-Drew

The Jaguars do one thing well, and that's run the ball. ?They are 6th overall in the NFL with 135 rushing yards per game, and Jones Drew's 878 is 4th most in the league. ?Jones-Drew is only 5-7, 208 pounds, but he has great strength and will push the pile forward for extra yards. ?He disappears at the line, making it difficult for the defense to spot him at times. ?He is also a threat to catch the ball; he hasn't had less than 40 receptions in his four years prior to this one, and even though he's not being thrown to as often as the past couple of years, he's still their most dangerous weapon. ?If the Giants can shut down Jones-Drew, the Jaguars should not be able to move the ball.
