EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)-- It takes a lot to put a smile on Bill Belichick's face and get a handshake from the stoic New England Patriots coach in the fourth game of the preseason. Third-string quarterback Danny Etling did it all on one play.

BOX SCORE: PATRIOTS 17, GIANTS 12

In a meaningless game Thursday night in which neither team played their starters, Etling added a lighthearted moment to the contest and iced the Patriots' 17-12 win with an 86-yard run on an option keeper that totally fooled the New York Giants' defense.

Sam Darnold appears to have locked up Jets’ starting quarterback job

  Sam Darnold appears to have locked up Jets’ starting quarterback job The odds were already in favor of Sam Darnold starting at quarterback for the New York Jets in Week 1, and what he did in the team’s third preseason game seems to have cemented that. Darnold went 8-of-16 for 89 yards and a touchdown pass in the first half of the Jets’ preseason game against the Giants on Friday. He also rushed twice for 13 yards and led the Jets on two touchdown drives. Simply being the starter for the team’s third preseason game — often regarded as the dress rehearsal — meant the No. 3 overall pick was in the lead for the job. Playing well should give the coaching staff no reason to feel they need to make a change.

''Well that was one of the most exciting plays I have seen in preseason, I'll say. Great call by Chad,'' Belichick said, referring to the selection by receivers coach Chad O'Shea, who was given a chance to call the play.

Etling, who also tossed a 1-yard touchdown pass to Ralph Webb early in the second half, said he looked behind him seven times on the jaunt down the right sideline.

''I just wanted to make sure no one was catching me,'' said Etling, who finished 18 of 32 for 157 yards after throwing six passes in the first preseason game. ''I didn't realize you could use the Jumbotron.''

Etling's big run came on the first play after an Alex Tanney-led drive from the New York 1 stalled at the Patriots 14 with New England ahead 10-6 with 4:11 to play.

Etling, who finished with 113 yards on seven carries, faked a handoff and ran an option around right end and scored untouched to give the Patriots a 3-1 preseason record.

''When's the last time a quarterback ran for 85 (really 86) yards, let alone for the Patriots,'' Belichick said. ''I'd say at least 20 years, I know that. Maybe (Steve) Grogan, (Jim) Plunkett. Eighty, that's a long run.

''Nobody has worked harder than Danny. He's the first one in, last one out. He is diligent. When something like that happens, you are happy for him.''

The Giants finished their first preseason under new coach Pat Shurmur at 2-2.

`"I thought the guys played hard, we didn't make enough plays in the end to win the game,'' Shurmur said.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning chatted with receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the first half, while Tom Brady sat next to the New England water coolers and relaxed.

Two Giants penalties for lowering the head to initiate contact set up Stephen Gostkowski 33-yard field goal in the first quarter.

Etling set up the touchdown to Webb with a 40-yard pass to K.J. Maye.

Tanney closed out the scoring with an 8-yard TD pass to Alonzo Russell with 48 seconds to play. The 2-point conversion run failed.

GOOD IMPRESSIONS

Giants CB Donte Deayon, who battled a hamstring injury in the preseason, might have secured a roster spot with two interceptions. His drawback is he is small and injury prone.

''I won't be nervous,'' Deayon said of Saturday's final cut. ''At this point, I put it all out on the table, I put my best foot forward. At this point, what happens, happens.'' ... Patriots free agent CB J.C. Jackson also had two interceptions and broke up a deep pass before being carted off late in the third quarter because of dehydration. ''Yeah, I had something to prove tonight. I knew I had to ball. This is the last preseason game and I'm trying to make the roster,'' Jackson said. ... Giants veteran CB Chris Lewis-Harris was excellent in coverage and tackling.

Sam's Club: Rookie Darnold to start at QB for Jets .
Sam Darnold will start at quarterback in the New York Jets' season-opening game at Detroit on Monday night. The 21-year-old Darnold will be the youngest quarterback to start in Week 1 since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger. The announcement by coach Todd Bowles comes as no surprise as the rookie was solid while starting the Jets' second and third preseason games. New York traded Teddy Bridgewater to New Orleans last week, and Darnold then sat out the preseason finale at Philadelphia — clear signals that the No. 3 overall draft pick would be under center against the Lions.
