Everybody in the Giants locker room is focused on beating Dallas. They hate Dallas. They want to crush Dallas.

What does Dallas think about that?

“I haven’t really heard anything,” he said.

That would be Dallas Reynolds, the Giants’ backup offensive lineman who was picked up earlier this season when the team was seemingly shuffling its roster a few times each week to keep up with...

All things considered, Victor Cruz would rather not be in Philadelphia.

“We don’t enjoy playing there,” the Giants receiver said of the annual trip down the Turnpike. “It’s something we have to do.”

They have to do it on Sunday, returning to Lincoln Financial Field. So what makes it so terrible?

“Just the atmosphere and it’s not the best place we always want to go and play,” Cruz...

Peyton Manning is doing something today that Eli Manning hardly ever does. He’s missing practice with an injury.

Big Brother apparently tweaked his ankle and is taking a day off from the workouts today, and he’s expected to be back in the Broncos’ saddle by tomorrow and in time for Sunday’s game. But it’s still enough to send ripples.

So how has Eli been able to avoid injury? Look around...

Chip Kelly continues to be politely evasive when it comes to declaring a starter with Nick Foles sidelined by a concussion and Vick not having played since he left the last game against the Giants...

There are some Giants who think losing four straight games is tough. And then there is Cullen Jenkins.

Going back to last year when he was with the Eagles, Jenkins is 1-15 in his last 16 games. That lone win came against the Bucs last December. So what can the veteran defensive tackle tell us about how to handle losing?

“You have to make sure it’s not the mindset,” he said. “You don’t...

Does the Giants offense feel the need for speed?

LANDOVER, MD - SEPTEMBER 09: Head coach Chip

Now that we’ve seen how fast many of the NFL’s offenses will be operating this season, with the Broncos and Eagles setting the early pace and 12 teams getting at least 70 offensive snaps in their openers, the pressure will be on the Giants to try to keep up.

“I feel like we have a pretty good defense as well and they can do a good job of stopping the pass and stopping the run and creating...
