Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Thursday morning headlines.
Kiwanuka: Philly 'a gritty, grimy city'
Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka knows the atmosphere at Lincoln Financial Field Sunday night when the Giants face the Philadelphia Eagles will be different than it is anywhere else the Giants play.
"It's the people, the people. We don't have to deal with is as much, but when you come back, your families tell you all the stories about stuff that happened in the stands. It is, hands down, a gritty, grimy city and they love their team and they are willing to support and they do it in their own special way."
Kiwanuka, a Giant since 2006, understand the rivalry with the Eagles.
"No love lost. It is what you live to play for when you are a little kid, these are the games that you want to be involved in because you know they are going to be remembered. Not just for a year or two, but remember them for years to come," Kiwanuka said.

Eli Manning hasn't looked this comfortable in years, dealing easily to his receivers, resting in the pocket, even running (yes, running!) for touchdowns.
But the Philadelphia Eagles have an easy plan for this Sunday, when they plan to take down the Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. It's all about making Manning uncomfortable, said Philly pass rusher Brandon Graham on Wednesday. It's all about attacking the Giants' signal-caller.
"He changes when he gets it," said Graham. "We just gonna rattle him."
"We've got to hit him," he added. "Eli's a great quarterback, and you just can't give him nothing, because he definitely takes advantage. He's a great quarterback, but that's with any quarterback: You put your hat on him a little bit and the game changes up a little bit."
