Thursday Notes

Defensive tackles Fred Robbins (shoulder) and Kenderick Allen (calf) did not practice and remain questionable for the Detroit game. <BR><BR>

"They're better today," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "They did not practice, but I think they are making some progress. Now whether they make it far enough, I don't know."

*Coughlin was 1-1 against the Lions as coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the defeat is one he would truly like to forget. In 1995, the Jaguars' inaugural season, Detroit beat Jacksonville, 44-0. It is the only shutout Coughlin has ever suffered as a head coach.

*The Lions have won their last four games in Giants Stadium, beating both the Giants and Jets in 1994 and 2000.
