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.)

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
