I don’t think we have a locker room full of fanboys.” Golden Tate offers a solid reason for why the Giants won’t be intimidated by the Patriots. https://t.co/c7tlZSCk9h

“I don’t think we have a locker room full of fanboys,’’ Tate said when asked about the mystique of playing against the defending champions in their own building.

“We understand we’re all in the NFL,’’ Tate said. “We’re going up there to do a job. We’ve all played in big games, at some point. I don’t think we need to put too much pressure on ourselves. We don’t want to get too high, too low, and we just want to live in the moment.’’

The Giants enter the matchup as 17.5 point underdogs, which is the largest negative point spread in Giants history and the largest spread ever in TNF history.
