Crowd noise at practice? The Giants are not anticipating a welcoming audience when they play at MetLife Stadium. Of course, considering the booing and lashing they have gotten there for most of this season, maybe having a Jets crowd in the seats will help them.

“Stress the fact that we’re the road team,” Tom Coughlin said of what will be different for them this week. They’ll be in the same locker room and have use of the same stadium facilities. They just will be on the opposite sideline.

And, as Coughlin clearly intimated in his comment, the Giants are 4-3 on the road this year and only 3-4 at home.
