New York Giants
Millikin Big Blue
Playing in New Jersey the week of the Superstorm Sandy that ravaged the area, this home game was supposed to be an emotional lift for the home crowd. Instead, the New York Football Giants laid an egg against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
There was no reason for the Giants to play so poorly this week. With some of the ceremony before the game, this should have been a motivating 9/11, Hurricane-Katrina-like return to the field. Not only was it a home game, and a travel game for the opponent, the Steelers traveled in the same day. Kind of last minute. And not just that, they were without their star brightest defensive star Troy Palomalu and their top two running backs. And not just that, their blazing kick returner got hurt during the game as well as one of their top wide receivers. All the advantage should have been with the Giants.
And in the first half, all the advantage was with the G-Men. Without a doubt, the home team got every call. In their only offensive touchdown drive of the game...

Eli Manning is a great NFL QB. Ice water in his veins that allows him to bring his team back late in games. This has translated to fantasy stats in recent years and his preseason ranking in the top 10 was an indication of where owners thought he should be getting drafted.
In the first 5 weeks of the season, Eli scored 15 or more fantasy points...
There's no replacement refs to blame for the poor officiating in the Steelers-Giants game.
Ryan Clark was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a big hit that seemed clean according to NFL rules. Eli Manning threw an ill-advised pass directly at a Steelers' defender, which was followed up by Clark lighting up Giants receiver Victor Cruz. Clark didn't...
If you enjoy football—which we assume most of you do—yesterday marked a pretty cool day as the Steelers traveled to New York to take on the Giants.
While the two team’s might not be your favorite, the quarterback matchup between Big Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning was something that should be celebrated. Why? Not because they put up a ton of yards or touchdowns—their stats...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a game billed as the battle of two first-round quarterbacks from the Class of 2004, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger outlasted the Giants' Eli Manning by copying Manning's fourth-quarter comeback act to steer Pittsburgh to a 24-20 win over New York at MetLife Stadium. The Giants (6-3) saw their four-game winning streak end, and Manning'...
Several teams in the NFC East had the opportunity to record signature wins – and one still does heading into the Monday Night game – but at the end of the day on Sunday, all that those teams had to show for their efforts was major disappointment.With the Philadelphia Eagles (3-5) in desperate need of a win against New Orleans tonight, here is what happened with the other three...
