EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Defensive starters for the New England Patriots (3-4 alignment) in their preseason finale against the New York Giants:

DE: Jerel Worthy
DT: L.T. Tuipulotu
DT: Zach Moore
OLB: Darius Fleming
ILB: Steve Beauharnais
ILB: James Morris
OLB: Michael Buchanan
CB: Malcolm Butler
CB: Logan Ryan
S: Alfonzo Dennard
S: Duron Harmon

This is a night to evaluate some of the lesser-experienced players, such as Moore, the sixth-round pick from Concordia.

Perhaps most interesting was some experimentation with Dennard, the third-year cornerback, at safety.
