They’re back. Or, more to the point, they’re going away.

Whatever happens from here on out the Giants will be playing away games. It starts on Sunday at Lambeau Field. One thing is for sure, though. The Giants won’t be playing any more games at cozy MetLife stadium where they have trounced their last three opponents in must-win games.

It’s enough for Tom Coughlin to trot out the old nickname for the 2007 team, an identity that was even engraved on the Super Bowl rings.

“’Road Warriors’ coming out of the woodwork,” Coughlin said of his message to the team. “Time to go on the road, renew some of those thoughts about playing on the road. The togetherness, the team, the all for one, the one for all, the mental toughness. We’re going to need all of those things there.”
