IRVING, Texas -- Giants running back Reuben Droughns is out with a burner and is being checked out on the sideline.

On the pass interference call on Terence Newman, he was called for an "arm-bar." We talked about how Orlando Scandrick was going to cover Steve Smith in the slot. It's a nice little battle right now.

Scandrick, a fifth-round draft choice, is doing a great job of keeping inside position on Smith, who's been a reliable third-down receiver. One more thing to point out: Watch how the Giants are defending T.O. I've been watching safety James Butler line up on him, but at the last minute, the Giants are running a linebacker (Antonio Pierce) right at him.
