Greetings from the Meadowlands
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- We're about 30 minutes away from kickoff and Giants running back Brandon Jacobs just called all his teammates over for a spirited discussion in the end zone.
It's in the high 20s, but the players are under bright sunshine. A lot of people were worried about high winds, but right now, it doesn't seem like much of a factor on the field. Sal Paolantonio will be joining me in a moment. We'll see if he has any last-minute information.
No huge surprises there. Lewis was carted off the field before last week's game against the Vikings with an ankle sprain but he returned. Schobel, of TCU fame, was in the lineup last week because of L.J. Smith's absence. We'll see if Smith gets his starting job back. Brent Celek has played really well in his absence.
