EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Several Giants are still without power, like so many in the New York-New Jersey area.

Eli Manning is among those who are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and hoping that the Giants can lift some spirits on Sunday.

On Tuesday, some players came in for treatment and to work out. On Wednesday, many players had their phones, laptops and anything else they could charge plugged in at their lockers.

"I've just been chilling in my house," said safety Stevie Brown, who hasn't had power since Monday night. "Came in, charged up my stuff as you can see, got my flashlight, laptop. [Just] Me and [my dog] sitting in the dark with the candles lit, pretty romantic."

The team did not have to report to the facility until 10 a.m. Wednesday. Normally they are in by 7 a.m.

Other than a later starting practice time on Wednesday and some inconveniences at home and making sure their families are safe, it's pretty much business as usual for the Giants.

"As Coach Coughlin says, it's a mid-stream adjustment," wide receiver Victor Cruz said. "So, we just have to be able to mid-stream adjust to these things and learn how to prepare throughout any circumstances. I guess it's just the nature of the beast. The show must go on. We've got to be ready to play."
