There’s more bad injury news for the Giants heading into their tough matchup against the Patriots.

Giants Will Try to Fight Off Injuries and History During Superbowl Rematch

In this article…

ESPN:

The New York Giants are 5-2 again.

And Justin Tuck knows what you're thinking.

"We get big-headed and start sucking," Tuck deadpanned.

All joking aside, Tuck and the Giants aren't exactly sure why things start to get scary for them after Halloween.

Since Tom Coughlin took over as coach in 2004, the Giants have started every season 5-2 or better. But the finishes haven't been so smooth. While the Giants have won 74 percent of their games in September and October under Coughlin, they are just a collective 28-34 in games from November on.

The news gets worse.

Big Blue has done an admirable job winning despite a plethora of early-season injuries to their defense. But now the two (three?) most important offensive Giants not named Eli will likely miss the Super Bowl XLII rematch.

Pro Football Talk:

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot),Hakeem Nicks (knee), and center David Baas (knee) are all doubtful to play in Foxborough.

Meanwhile, the Giants got some surprising bad news on defense.  Jason Pierre-Paul hurt himself during Thursday’s practice and will be a gametime decision because of a neck injury. He didn’t practice Friday, which is never a good sign.

The Pierre-Paul injury is super frustrating as well. After all, he was one of our "Sophomore Sensations" with 8.5 sacks so far this season. A seemingly harmless collision with a teammate wouldn't sideline him for an extended period of time though, right? RIGHT?

Okay, gotta get the New York Mets negativity out of my head.

On the bright side, the Giants will have the ball in Manning's hands, who has been spectacular this season. He's completely backed up his "elite quarterback" talk, putting together the highest fourth quarter QB Rating in the NFL.

Still, a banged up Giants team getting 8.5 points against Brady and Belichick in Foxborough after a bad loss to the Steelers? Mark me down as not as confident as I'd like to be.

Either way, we'll always have this:
