Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Giants scored 15 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to end the preseason with an 18-17 win over the New England Patriots, while the Jets lost 24-14 to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants open their National Football League season on the road against the Washington Redskins on Sept. 11, the same day the Jets host the Dallas Cowboys. The regular season begins Sept. 8 with the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers hosting the New Orleans Saints.

Benjarvus Green-Ellis ran for a pair of one-yard touchdowns for the Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Da’Rel Scott ran a faked punt 65 yards for a touchdown and Derrick Martin returned a fumble 11 yards for a touchdown before Jerrel Jernigan caught a two-point conversion pass to secure the win for the Giants.

At MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Eagles quarterback Vince Young threw a 16-yard scoring pass to Chad Hall in the first quarter before leaving the game with a hamstring injury.

Dion Lewis and Graig Cooper added touchdowns for Philadelphia, while Scotty McKnight and Ellis Lankster scored for the Jets.
