EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants started practicing today for the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
Coach Tom Coughlin had the team work on first- and second-down situations, and planned to work on third-down plays Friday. He hopes to have about 80 percent of the game plan in place this week before the team leaves for Glendale, Arizona, on Monday.
Starting left guard Rich Seubert, recovering from a knee injury, and backup cornerback Kevin Dockery, who missed the last two playoff games with a hip injury, did not practice. Seubert says he will play in the Super Bowl. The Giants are two-touchdown underdogs.
The Super Bowl is a week from Sunday.
