Eli Manning will square off with brother Peyton in East Rutherford next season when the G-Men host the Denver Broncos. It will be the third time that the brothers face off in the regular season.
“That is what I talked to our team (about) this morning — pride, honor, dignity,” Coughlin said. “Play the game that we are capable of playing, finish the season with a game we can all be proud of.”
The return of Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks to practice on Thursday after missing the previous day with a sprained left knee could only bode well for his on-field rapport with quarterback Eli Manning.
“Your back is against the wall,” Coughlin said. “You don’t have any choice. What we really want is right there for us. There is only one way to get it, and it’s not like playing like we did (on Sunday).”
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that he has not ruled out running back Ahmad Bradshaw from Sunday’s matchup in Atlanta, despite a knee injury.
With three games left, the Giants (8-5) have a one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington (7-6) and Dallas (7-6). If they win their final three games, they’ll win the division title for a second straight year.
No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“You don’t worry about it,” Rolle said of Green’s comments. “I’m a deep safety. I’m going to play my responsibility, and if I get a chance I’m coming across. He’s a great receiver, though. You can’t take anything from A.J. Green.”

“We wanted to go out there and give the Giants fans and the people around New York something to cheer about,” Manning said. “We weren’t able to do that. It’s disappointing, just the way we played.”
While the Giants prepare for Sunday’s game against the Steelers, the electronic equipment at the bottom of the locker of the NFC Defensive Player of the Week was a sign of another opponent the Giants are facing this week — the aftermath of Sandy.
In the last three weeks, the New York Giants’ offensive line has played extremely well together — so well that there doesn’t seem to be room for veteran David Diehl to return to a starting role.
A spokesman said that 42-year-old David Chupcavich of Orange, Conn., was leaving the stadium in East Rutherford on Sunday when he fell over the side of the escalator. It’s not clear what caused him to fall.
A football fan was taken to the hospital Sunday, after falling off an escalator at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP has been sacked a league-low five times through the first six games of the season, and he’s been hit only 11 times — total.
