With nothing at stake against the Seattle Seahawks, the New York Giants have something to play for.
And the Giants want to avoid being blown out by the Seahawks and would love nothing more than to upset the heavily-favored NFC leaders.
“The last thing you want to be is embarrassed,” Tuck said. “And this is a team that, if you're not ready to play, they will embarrass you … and then laugh at you about it.”
The Seahawks are 11-2 and regarded as potential Super Bowl XLVIII NFC representatives.
“You have to be physically prepared to go against a very good and physical team, a team that's a little bit unusual,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “They don't turn the ball over. They do things the right way. They lead the league or are second in the league in takeaways. Therefore, you can't make a mistake, as we've learned the hard way over and over.”
