Good morning, New York Giants fans! Today is -- finally -- a regular-season game day for your Giants. You can find all of our Giants vs. Detroit Lions coverage on our Giants-Lions Hub Page. That currently includes all of our pre-game coverage, and will also feature in-game and post-game coverage. Let's get your morning started with a look around the Inter-Google at what others are saying.

Suh poses challenge for Giants' offensive line
"Suh is the guy who sticks out to most people but he's not the only guy we are concerned about," Giants guard John Jerry said. "They have a great front four. They've got guys who can stop the run and rush the passer, so we're definitely going to have to be on top of our game."

"It’s the Jets, so the whole stadium was green. [It was] just like any other away game,’’ said Tuck, who might watch his former team open Monday night in Detroit. "I’ll definitely tune in [in] some regards. Everybody thinks I root against them: I don’t. I’ve got a lot of friends over there, and will always have fond memories of me as a Giant. I’ll always root those guys well.’’

Most eyes in Detroit and many across the United States will turn to the Lions at 7:10 Monday night. On 'Monday Night Football,' the Lions will have their first chance to prove that last year's 1-6 finish was a fluke and that they are indeed contenders and not pretenders.
