Tune in at 4:25 PM ET as the Steelers take on the Giants. Gino Bottero will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Welcome everyone! I'll be live blogging today's game between the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Let's get right to the injuries. Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks, and Isaac Redman are ACTIVE.
Notable inactives for the Steelers: S Troy Polamalu, RB Rashard Mendenhall, RB Jonathan Dwyer, RT Marcus Gilbert
Notable inactives for the Giants: S Kenny Phillips, LB Chase Blackburn, LB Keith Rivers
The Steelers were forced to fly to New Jersey this morning because of a travel disruption caused by Hurricane Sandy. The team's hotel in Jersey City was without power and the team could not find other accommodations in the area.
On Thursday, the NFL and players' union announced they would combine to donate $1 million to the American Red Cross to help in the recovery efforts in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. To help support this important cause visit www.redcross.org or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Isaac Redman will start at running back for the Steelers today. Expect Baron Batch to see time on passing downs.
The Giants are 6-2 for the sixth time in Tom Coughlin's nine seasons with the team.
I'm just hoping for a good game. Two good teams here.
As I wrote below, Troy Polamalu is INACTIVE today.
That was a great game last night. Hopefully we'll have another good one here.
Eli actually looked pretty shaky in last week's game against the Cowboys. He wasn't called upon to do much, but he didn't look great when he was on the field.
He's really picked up his play over the last couple weeks.
The absence of Troy Polamalu is a big one.
They're about ready to begin in New York. The Giants won the toss and will receive the opening kickoff.
14:53 New York returned the kick to their 30. Eli Manning and the Giant offense will begin from there.
14:38 Eli Manning went deep on 1st and the pass for Nick was broken up. On 2nd, Manning hit Cruz to the right and he picked up 17.
13:45 Bradshaw ran up the middle for a gain of 4, then he ran up the middle again, this time for a gain of 5. 3rd and 1 coming up.
13:10 Manning threw along the right sideline for Randle and he didn't run the route Manning was expecting.
13:01 Weatherford's punt is downed at the PIT 2.
Troy Polamalu remains INACTIVE with a calf injury.
Isaac Redman is actually starting for the Steelers, with Baron Batch likely to see time as well.
12:56 Redman with a strong run up the middle and he gains 11.
12:14 FLAG - Roethlisberger threw right and his pass was knocked down by Tuck. On 2nd, Roethlisberger hit Redman on a screen for a gain of 3 and a flag came out.
