There's one preseason game left for the New England Patriots. For much of the roster, that means one shot remains.

One shot remains for them to impress Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots coaches and show why they should be on the active roster going forward.

On Wednesday against the New York Giants, players will make one last attempt to pitch their abilities to contribute in any role, whether it be as a special-teamer, kick returner, tackle/guard hybrid, pass-rusher, etc.

Afterward, the final cuts will be made, with some players sure that they did enough to stick around being summoned to Belichick's office for an unfortunate discussion.

Some, however, will hear good news at the end of the preseason odyssey. They'll be given the chance to start the regular season with the big club, having made a team that figures to be competing for big things in the AFC.

Here are five players whose status will be up in the air the rest of the way, but when the dust clears, will emerge from football judgment day unscathed.
