Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks will be out at least three weeks after getting hit in the leg during last night's game. He has something called "Compartment Syndrome," which is the same problem Jason Taylor had during his season with the Redskins. That only cost Taylor two games, but it required constant treatment and Taylor's effectiveness was down for the whole season.
(Note: Compartment syndome is apparently swelling in the lower leg that compresses nerves and blood vessels, possibly causing permanent damage.)

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
