The Giants game was his first extended playing time since October of 2014. And although he was credited the start in the 2015 season opener against Buffalo, he was in for only one play and didn't throw a pass. "It was great to wake up on Monday morning to feel that soreness and be in the game again. And I promise to work as hard as I can to be better this week." SERIES HISTORY: 17th meeting.

Cassell was acquired in late September from the Buffalo Bills in a trade.
He has more experience than Weeden, with 96 touchdown passes, 70 interceptions and 15,727 yards passing over 10 seasons.
The Super Bowl champion Patriots won their seventh in a row, including last season's playoffs.
The Cowboys (2-3) lost their third in a row without Romo and receiver Dez Bryant, both sidelined with injuries.
Jones said he expects next week's starting quarterback, Matt Cassel, will take those chances for the 2-3 Cowboys.
"I think he's also got experience in basically just stepping up in the pocket and making some plays," Jones said of Cassel.
"To lead the one drive to tie the game and then to give us a chance at the end after that, he is a tough guy, a mentally tough guy. "I'm going to fight until the end no matter what the circumstances, no matter how had they got at times, and try to continue to put ourselves in position to win the ballgame." Cassel has three games with three or more interceptions in his last eight starts dating to 20 with the Minnesota Vikings.
