Instead of shoes at the bottom of his locker, New York Giants safety Stevie Brown had a couple of power cords.
One carried a charge into his cellphone and the other current into his laptop in somewhat of a crossing pattern.
While the Giants (6-2) prepare for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-4), the electronic equipment at the bottom of the NFC's defensive player of the week's locker was a sign of another opponent the Giants are facing this week - the aftermath of Sandy.
The superstorm devastated areas of New York City and New Jersey and it has left a number of Giants without power at home, something an NFL player needs to review videotape of upcoming opponents - as well as to stay warm and comfortable.

Hurricane Sandy has left huge chunks of New Jersey and New York without power and the New York Giants have been affected as much as anyone else. Players had their first practice since Sunday night's physically draining 29-24 victory over the Cowboys in Dallas. The slightly altered session was held in the late afternoon instead of the morning to give assistant coaches — who...
SALSA IN THE CITY
Victor Cruz has been attempting to get a new contract from the Giants, and it looks like the two sides are close to agreeing on a new deal.
Safety Kenny Phillips, who has watched Stevie Brown emerge as a force for the New York Giants on defense since Phillips went down a knee injury in the fourth game of the season, declared on Thursday that he is ready to return to action.
"I'm going this week," Phillips said. "I do feel confident in my knee. It's been a long, long process. I feel like it'...

Giants receiver Victor Cruz (calf) fully participated in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Cruz' calf injury was never expected to keep him out of Sunday's game. Start him and expect a bounce-back week for the Giants big-play receiver.
Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) at New York Giants (6-2)
Last week, the Giants won in Dallas in the exact type of game they normally win. They are now 18-7 ATS as road favorites under Tom Coughlin. On the road in general, they are 50-25 ATS under Tom Coughlin, as opposed to 34-38 ATS at home. As home favorites of more than 3, which they are this week, they are 18-26 ATS under Tom Coughlin...
What more can you say about Lawrence Tynes? He gets a ton of opportunities each week. He has only missed two filed goals this year, both over 40 yards. Even when he doesn’t get many field goal attempts, he still will get around five points because of how many times the New York Giants score. If you have Tynes, I would expect him to get ten to fifteen points each game, and I...
