The two historic franchises between the Giants and Steelers will square off this coming Sunday evening at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands
Both the Giants and Steelers have one of the top elite quarterbacks in the NFL in Eli Manning (Giants) and Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers).
Even though this isn't a rivalry game, but it should be one of the most exciting matchups this football season to watch as an NFL fan.
They only play each other one in every four year and this will the 3rd time Eli Manning will take on Ben Roesthlisberger.
Back in December of 2004, the Steelers beat the Giants 33-30 which was a classic game that season between the rookie duo QB's.
Then later in 2008, the Giants got payback by beating the Steelers 21-14 in a hard fought tight game which was another exciting one.
Now in 2012, they will meet again this Sunday in MetLife Stadium making this the third different stadium with both of teams facing each other.

If it’s short passing; fine, if it’s going deep … Continue reading »
Eli Manning Kate Mara, the daughter of Giants owner John Mara tweeted a photo of quarterback Eli Manning taking a picture of the flooded lobby in his Hoboken New Jersey apartment building.

TweetHere is a message from the New York Giants to Big Ben Roethlisberger.
It's time for Big Ben to be the one who gets ABUSED! He isn't playing defenseless girls and they won't be playing Sunday's game at a nightclub! He will be seeing a heavy doze of Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul (JPP).

Anytime you feel you have a good ball club, as a head coach, you are looking for teams on the schedule that you feel will give your team their greatest challenge. I’ve learned with the National Football League that while it’s fun to look at the 16-game schedule before the season starts, it really doesn’t mean a whole lot. We can circle ‘big’ games and put little stars next...
