It's gonna be on ch. 11 (wpix)
Matt, it doesn't matter.

By rule, cable games (MNF, TNF, etc) have to be shown on over the air channels in the home cities of the teams involved.

Tonight's game will be aired on PIX11 in NYC.

I'm not sure if it's the same channel in the other boroughs, but if it matters NFLN can be found on channel 176 for TWC subscribers here on Staten Island.

kinda typical TC thing to do to a rookie
Other than running backs, who are benched if they fumble and/or don't handle pass protection, which rookies has TC ever treated like this? Seriously, which ones, ever?

Besides which: 1) The inactive list is overflowing with players who are out due to injuries, and 2) TC singled out Hankins for praise after the Philadelphia game, why would he make an injured player active this week to keep Hankins from dressing?

by a lot, and hey maybe the Giants start trading guys to build for next year. Somehow I don't think they will though, they usually don't like to set themselves up for the future that way. I'm not going to bother watching this one, thank god I've already missed watching half the games already this season; makes it a little less painful.

Soooo we will see you again when the Giants are playing well again? Man up and be a real fan. Trading players isn't the answer. Who are we going to trade? Webster? Tuck? Rolle? I don't think so. The only player that would make the most sense to trade is Nicks and that won't happen despite bogus reports of him going to Detroit. If we get rid of Nicks, that leaves a receiving corps headlined by Cruz and Randle. That won't work because Randle hasn't shown enough to take away double teams on Cruz and we all saw last year how Cruz double teamed all game effects outcomes of games. Not to mention Nicks' reputation on the injury report won't draw any higher than a 3rd round pick. We're going to stick to smart drafts, and smart free agent signings. We might be bad, but our division is worse. For a fan of a team who has won two Super Bowls in the last 6 years, you give up this easily? That's sad.
None of the "experts" polled

at have picked the Giants tonight
Why would anyone pick the Giants, du'oh?  
BlueLou : 10/10/2013 5:43 pm : link
Maybe a Ouiji board would, but certainly no sentinent being!
Got an email from the NFL promoting the game  
VTDAD : 10/10/2013 5:52 pm : link
Subject Line is:

"Thursday Night Football - NFC Powerhouses Collide in Week 6 Showdown"

Aren't there so many injured  
oldutican : 10/10/2013 6:12 pm : link
that all the healthy will suit up?
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 6:32 pm : link
I guess you haven't seen too many pre-season games, Herman looked good in youtube video's but dismal in games. Herman is far from ready to join the O-Line even if Diehl is a revolving door!
^^^ Hermann^^  
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 6:33 pm : link
I honestly think  
cheeseburger : 10/10/2013 6:36 pm : link
that Gilbride is going to have a different approach this week. Short passes on 1st down, run the ball on second and try to pick up the third and 4, etc.

We just have to stay away from penalties. Even though we are banged up at CB, I think are D holds them under 30 tonight, which is a big improvement.

I also think we will see at least one end around. Since Jacobs is no threat to cut it back with any speed, the DE is gong to be crashing down hard, need to make them pay for that at least once.

The Giants are like the Raiders and Cowboys teams of the past few  
PatersonPlank : 10/10/2013 6:45 pm : link
years. Lots of skill position talent, but the lines are so bad that it doesn't matter. I used to laugh at those teams that kept drafting WR's when their lines were crumbling. Now the jokes on me.
Bill in UT : 10/10/2013 6:49 pm : link
Hey, it's not that easy keeping track of who's in during the preseason games unless they really stand out. Or you watch every play over 5 times, which I don't. So is he just another bad draft pick? He's still on the practice squad, so you'd think they have hopes for him. May as well find out during the season, hopefully with Painter in rather than Eli, lol.
Moore active  
jeff57 : 10/10/2013 6:56 pm : link
Nassib not.
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 6:56 pm : link
just not ready yet, and may never be. Wasted draft pick? he was a 7th. round draft pick so wasted I'd lean towards no.
adcliff : 10/10/2013 6:58 pm : link
I'm predicting 100 all purpose yards for Da'Rel Scott.
When it's obvious Bill in UT is a troll  
jcn56 : 10/10/2013 7:08 pm : link
who offers nothing but simple one liners as 'discussion', why are we bothering with him?
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 7:10 pm : link
my bad, thought he was, but wasn't sure! Thanks!!
JoshB : 10/10/2013 7:20 pm : link
will be starting at MLB, let's see how this pans out..
Bob Papa called out  
BBurns : 10/10/2013 7:23 pm : link
Nicks defending Eli not running the 5 yard slant .

SBlue46 : 10/10/2013 7:25 pm : link
need to run a little to get O working....If D plays good
we can win...we have Battered Cutler before,,,Fewell
needs to get some balls tonight
Really don't have a good feeling...  
drkenneth : 10/10/2013 7:30 pm : link
I'm usually positive, but this team is really bad. Bottom completely fell out of what was a thin, bad team last year.

Complete organizational failure from Reese to Weatherford.
SBlue46 : 10/10/2013 7:38 pm : link
says Giants will be 2-14 and Romo is losing because he doesn't have talented players...not his fault
i'm really looking forward to tonight  
jsboston : 10/10/2013 7:42 pm : link
i've missed 2 games due to travel already. i don't think i've missed more than 5 since BBI was founded.

I can't wait. I think we not only win but play well and win with authority.

Go Giants!!  
Sean in PA : 10/10/2013 7:43 pm : link
I want to see a win tonight!
Actually, I have Eli  
thevett : 10/10/2013 7:44 pm : link
Cruz, and Randle all on my FF team so i Need them to max out. I hope for a 45 to 44 game. BTW, I am 5-0
Who are we going to beat tonight?  
Irishayes : 10/10/2013 7:45 pm : link
I hope the bears but fear it will be ourselves again. My oldman is at the game so I am really hoping it doesn't get ugly. GO GIANTS!
Charles Tillman is out  
G2 : 10/10/2013 7:49 pm : link
Lets beat these fuckers  
BBurns : 10/10/2013 7:49 pm : link
Someone BJ or Cox got to give us some run game
so Eli can throw the damn thing without them
just pinning there ears back .
At least they have some key guys out on Defense as well .
What channel is this game on for FIOS people  
Doom5 : 10/10/2013 7:51 pm : link
without NFL network? I know it should be one of the locals, but I can't find it.
doom if you're  
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 7:55 pm : link
in NY/NJ they're on WPIX 11
Just came across this tweet..  
Sean in PA : 10/10/2013 7:59 pm : link
from this piece of shit. We are going down the drain as a society that this guy is as popular as he is. Fuck him and go Giants'!

@RealSkipBayless: Eli on way to leading NFL in interceptions for 3rd TIME. Made luckiest play in SBowl history to win his 1st, Brady's misfire saved his 2nd.
Season turns around tonight!!!  
RELICDOA : 10/10/2013 8:00 pm : link
Believe it and it will happen!!!!

Doom5 : 10/10/2013 8:00 pm : link
Must have been hard for Warner  
Killed the K-Gun : 10/10/2013 8:02 pm : link
To see his understudy win 2 more SB.

He's still bitter.
You're Welcome!  
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 8:04 pm : link
Tillman out  
Ten Ton Hammer : 10/10/2013 8:04 pm : link
Paea out.

That's pretty key.
Keeping my expectations low  
tribs : 10/10/2013 8:07 pm : link
to keep the formula

Reality - Expectations = Happiness

in the positive.

However sometimes the Giant's reality can be so low that expectations can't be low enough, and I still wind up pissed.
I tune out  
Bleedin Blue : 10/10/2013 8:09 pm : link
Kurt "the hater" Warner! He should go to his church and do an alter call and Testify! He has hate in his heart for everything Giants! Can I get an Amen!!!
So Teddy Bridgewater just threw a pretty 40 yrd td.  
Dave in Buffalo : 10/10/2013 8:12 pm : link
just sayin...
Tillman out  
Andy in Boston : 10/10/2013 8:14 pm : link

dep026 : 10/10/2013 8:16 pm : link
about Teddy Bridgewater should be banished for tonights game.

We arent taking Bridgewater. Period.
Kinda sucks that were only 2 back  
nicky43 : 10/10/2013 8:17 pm : link
I'd rather be hoping for the better draft picks but I'm sure the team is out to turn this around so....Go GIANTS!
Bill in UT : 10/10/2013 8:17 pm : link
Hey, I've been on several internet sites, not sports related, and made over 17,000 posts over the years. Never been called a troll before. How would you define a troll?
tillman being out is huge?!  
Simms11 : 10/10/2013 8:18 pm : link

Lol dep.
