EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Cheap NBA Jerseys .J. -- Peyton Manning finally found some time in retirement to get together with little brother Eli.Peyton showed up at the Giants walk-through workout Tuesday and discussed football, sat through part of a quarterbacks meeting and talked about playing against the Steelers, New Yorks opponent this weekend in Pittsburgh.Eli Manning was unaware his brother was going to show up at the teams facility, but he noted it was nice to see him.The Giants (8-3) have won six straight games -- their longest streak since 2008 -- and have a great chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.It was good to have him here, Eli Manning said. I hadnt seen him in a while. He has something to do tomorrow, so he popped in and sat in on a few meetings with us today. Just good to catch up. Ill get some time with him later on.Peyton Manning, dressed in pajamas, did a commercial before the season for DirecTV in which he had a hard time seeing Eli because his younger brother was playing on the days he wanted to meet.Eli Manning said Peyton seems to be adjusting to life after football, adding that he is staying busy and enjoying his down time.However, the longtime Giants quarterback said its obvious his brother enjoys being around football.I think when he gets in this environment, he was kind of drilling the coaches on questions, Manning said. I know he liked being in there and doing a little install on Pittsburgh. Im sure he misses that environment, just the game plan, how youre going to do things, how youre going to deal with protections, how youre going to pick things up, just really getting back into that flow of things. Im sure it is a little reminder of how special it is to be in this situation.Manning said his brother will watch his games and send him text messages afterward, telling him he made a good throw on some play or asking questions about certain plays or what the offense was running.Thats kind of always been the case, Manning said, adding the two have always tried to watch each other play. Its good communication about what is going on.The Giants offense can use some help. It has scored 231 points this season, which is 21st in the league. There has been no consistency.Were just a few plays away, Manning said. You score 21, its not like we scored 10. Were just not getting down in the red zone enough. Thats the deal.The Giants tried to switch things up last week and go with the deep ball. Manning threw six long passes against the Cleveland Browns in a 27-13 win, but he hit only one.Stepping up this week will be important when facing Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (6-5), winners of two straight.We have our expectations of what we want to do and how we want to score, Manning said. We feel we can score. Weve been good the last few weeks protecting the ball, thats number one. Its not about forcing things trying to score. We have to execute well, play smart and make the plays that are there.The Giants have made enough plays to get back in the playoff hunt this season with five games to go. In the last three seasons, New York has had little to play for down the home stretch.You can get spoiled early in your career when four years in a row you make the playoffs, Manning said. You assume that is kind of the norm. You play long enough you realize it isnt. It is special to be in contention to make the playoffs, and especially after the last couple being out early.Game notes The Giants placed RB Orleans Darkwa on injured reserve with a leg injury. LB-S Eric Pinkins was signed off the practice squad to take his spot on the roster. ... G Brett Jones, who injured a calf in a start against Cincinnati on Nov. 14, hopes to return to practice Wednesday. ... Starting LG Justin Pugh had a setback last week trying to return from a strained knee and seemingly will be out a little longer. ... Manning said he apologized to rookie WR Sterling Shepard for not targeting him in last weeks game. ... PK Robbie Gould took the blame for missing his third PAT in the past two games. I just missed it. You cant have that, especially when you are trying to make the playoffs.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Bulls Jerseys .

Cheap Chicago Bulls Jerseys .com) - Yankee Stadium is the home of the Bronx Bombers, but on Sunday afternoon it will open its gates to host the latest addition of the Hudson River Rivalry. http://www.cheapbullsjerseys.com/ . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are working to avoid giving the Cincinnati Bengals additional motivation before their Week 2 matchup on Sunday.On Wednesday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the Steelers wont be looking for payback despite the Bengals role in the injuries of Pittsburghs top-three playmakers last season. Bengals Linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who is suspended for three games for a continued pattern of egregious play, pulled down Steelers running back LeVeon Bell on the play that ended his season with a knee injury, and he put big hits on Roethlisberger and receiver Antonio Brown in the Bengals AFC wild-card loss.Thats not who we are, said Roethlisberger about retaliating. Its a physical football game and a physical division. Thats what we expect, a physical football game -- clean.Roethlisberger wouldnt bite on the evolution of the Steelers-Bengals matchup, which featured more than $100,000 in player fines, pregame scuffles, social media sparring and player-to-coach beefing.Whether its the Browns, the Bengals or Ravens, to us they are all big division rivals, Roethlisberger said.The closest thing to a scintillating quote in the Steelers locker room on Wednesday came from defensive end Cam Heyward, who called Steelers-Bengals the second-biggest rivalry in the AFC North. Many Steelers still consider the Raveens, armed with two Super Bowls, their primary rival. Cheap Bulls Jerseys China. The Bengals and Steelers create physical matchups, but the two are still developing a history, Heyward said.Its not a slight on the Bengals. The Ravens have won Super Bowls, weve won Super Bowls, Heyward said.Asked about the animosity between both teams, Heyward said: What animosity? We got the win last year. At the end of the day, thats all were trying to do.In similar fashion, the Bengals have stayed mostly tight-lipped about Pittsburgh. Cornerback Adam Jones, whose scuffle with Steelers assistant Joey Porter earned the Bengals a costly 15-yard penalty in the final seconds of the playoff game, has declined comment about Pittsburgh.Roethlisberger expressed respect for the Bengals, calling their defense very, very good and Burfict a great player. Burfict dislocated Roethlisbergers shoulder on a playoff sack, and when Roethlisberger returned to the lineup for the games final drive, Burfict disrupted his passing attempt to Brown with a vicious helmet-to-helmet shot on the star receiver. Brown suffered a concussion and missed the Steelers divisional playoff loss to the Broncos.One of the best defenses in the league, Roethlisberger said.
