Let's take a brief look at Sunday's match-up between the New York Giants and Oakland Raiders. Later in the week we will provide a more in-depth scouting report.

The Giants have dealt this season with running quarterbacks in Cam Newton and Michael Vick. Terrelle Pryor of the Raiders has been even more dangerous. His 485 rushing yards leads both the Raiders and all NFL quarterbacks.

Four members of the Giants were originally drafted by Oakland:
-- OL Kevin Boothe, sixth-round (176th pick overall) in 2006.
-- S Stevie Brown, seventh round (251st pick overall) in 2010. Brown recorded 30
-- WR
-- Louis Murphy, fourth round (124th pick overall) in 2009. TE
-- Brandon Myers, sixth
round (202nd overall pick) in 2009.

The Giants and Raiders have not played each other since Oct. 11, 2009. The Giants won that game, 44-7.

The Giants will be wearing their alternate white pants Sunday instead of their usual gray pants.
