NFL Week 8: Giants (4-2) Vs. Dolphins (0-6)

The New York Giants (4-2) host the Miami Dolphins (0-6) Sunday at MetLife Stadium

The New York Giants, leading the NFC East with a 4-2 record, return from their bye week on Sunday when they host the winless Miami Dolphins (0-6) at MetLife Stadium (1 p.m. ET/CBS). The Giants open the week as 10-point favorites.

New York coach Tom Coughlin is trying to guard against his team taking the Dolphins, one of three winless teams left in the NFL, for granted.

"I am concerned about our team. We want to get our team in the best position we can possibly be in. Work on the best preparation and work on the areas that we need to improve," Coughlin said. "We need to understand what Miami will bring to the table when they come in here and be ready and prepared."

The Giants should be as healthy as they have been all season when they face Miami on Sunday. Defensive end Justin Tuck, who has played just two games due to neck and groin injuries, has been practicing and is expected to play. Chris Snee (concussion) and Henry Hynoski (neck burner) have also been practicing. In addition, wide receiver Ramses Barden has been practicing and may come off the PUP list in time for Sunday's game. Finally, first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara, a cornerback, has been practicing -- although his status for Sunday remains in doubt.
