Player of the Veek
This is the third time this season a Giants player has won the Defensive Player of the Week award. Osi Umenyiora captured the first two, in Week 4 (after a six-sack performance vs. Philadelphia) and Week 7 vs. San Francisco (when he returned a fumble 75 yards for a touchdown).
*Four Giants did not practice today, including running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who rushed for 151 yards at Buffalo, and has a bruised calf. "It is a day to day thing," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We will see how it is tomorrow."
Also sitting out were cornerback Kevin Dockery (hip flexor), wide receiver Sinorice Moss (back) and defensive tackle Manny Wright (back).
*The NFL has arranged with broadcast television partners CBS and NBC for an unprecedented three-way national simulcast of the NFL Network telecast of Saturday night's Giants-Patriots game. CBS and NBC will carry the NFL Network feed of the game with Bryant Gumbel and Cris Collinsworth in the broadcast booth. The game also will be televised by WWOR (Channel 9) in New York and WCVB-ABC (Channel 5) in Boston.
