Back in Pittsburgh: “That is varsity football, as we say in our business,” Tomlin said earlier this week about the Giants. “Looking at what they have done this year, it’s equally as impressive. They are 6-2. They’ve won their last four games. They do things that winning teams do.

“They do what is required. They have a bunch of guys that have been on big stages. They know how to win. They are very well coached. They have a stable work environment. We are looking forward to measuring ourselves against a group like this. We need this challenge. Obviously, we won the last time we were on the road. That has been an issue for us in the past. We anticipate this environment being a hostile one, as it should be. Hopefully we are up to the task.”
