Steelers vs. Giants: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Nick Laham

Over the last eight years, the New York Giants are 1-7 in their ninth game of the season. They face the Pittsburgh Steelers this year, who will be without Troy Polamalu in the secondary.

The New York Giants (6-2) will try to keep their first-half momentum going as they face the Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) on Sunday. The Giants have consistently gotten off to a hot start in recent years, and while some years have led to Super Bowl Championships, others have petered out without the Giants making the playoffs. In eight years under Tom Coughlin, the Giants are 1-7 in their ninth game of the season.

Eli Manning is averaging 288 passing yards per game, but he has eight interceptions to go with his 12 touchdowns. He should breathe a little easier on Sunday knowing that Troy Polamalu isn't in Pittsburgh's secondary. The star safety is expected to miss his fourth consecutive game with a calf injury.

On defense, the Giants have a league-best 24 takeaways, including eight fumbles recovered. Those won't come easy against the Steelers, who are tops in the league with only having turned it over six times.

Game Time: 4:25 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: CBS ( WCBS 2 New York, KDKA 6 Pittsburgh)
Odds: Giants favored by 3.5 points
