With key players such as Brandon Jacobs, Kareem McKenzie and Fred Robbins all practicing on Friday after missing the Cowboys game or suffering injuries while playing it, it could be all hands on deck for this week's biggest game of the season.
"This is a big game – this is exciting," quarterback Eli Manning said. "It is the end of the season, you are going to play in some big games that mean a lot to both teams and so this is it. I think we are ready for it, we are excited about the opportunity playing at home in a big game, and we need to get back to playing good football."
"We want the bye, we want home field advantage, we want the number one overall seed and one game gets all of that for us," linebacker Antonio Pierce said. "Same goes for the Carolina Panthers, so I think both teams will go into the game focused and understand ing what is at stake."
Also, TGI has learned that Giants WRs coach Mike Sullivan interviewed on Saturday for the vacant Army head coaching position. Sullivan is believed to be the leading candidate to take over for the departed Stan Brock.
