Here's what Tom Coughlin said he wants to see in Friday's third preseason game:

"You’re running a lot of bodies in and out and it’s not quite the continuity you’d like to have, but still," Coughlin said. "Offensively we need to go. We need to get something done here. We have some people who need to show that. Yes, quite frankly, we had a special teams error in both games. That’s got to be eliminated.

"We’ve got to put the ball in the end zone, that’s something that’s a challenge for the offensive team. The defense played well last week. We had the ball run on us the week before, so it’s a consistency thing. Can we go do that week in and week out? Against a team that scored a lot of points the other day and moved right down the field, advancing the ball in the air. It’s a good football team. It’s time for us to start to move in the direction of the execution and the performance being at a high level."
