Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow at the start of your weekend.

Coughlin nominated for Salute to Service Award

This year, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was nominated by the team to receive the Salute to Service Award, presented by the USAA.

The Salute to Service Award, which is presented by USAA, "was created to acknowledge the exceptional efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support U.S. service members and veterans."

Coughlin has been very active with the NFL in military support in the past. In 2009, Coughlin traveled to the Middle East in 2009 to attend a USO trip. In 2012, the Big Blue head coach was the recipient of the US Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Award. All 32 teams in the NFL do have a nominee for the award. The winner of the Salute to Service Award will be announced during the NFL Honors award show of February 6, the day before the Super Bowl.
