Giants, Patriots players trickling onto field

INDIANAPOLIS — We’re less than two hours away from kickoff, and Lucas Oil Stadium is starting to get hot.

Fans are filing in off the streets, taking their seats, and early from-the-sky estimates from the press box place the crowd at about 70/30 Giants to Patriots. Also spotted: twin boys in Darrelle Revis home jerseys. Who will they root for today, considering the Jets went a combined 0-3 against these teams this season?

The fans aren’t the only ones here. Players from both squads are out testing the turf. Giants QB Eli Manning was seen running around, and punter Steve Weatherford currently is booting the ball with power in this controlled setting.

We just saw the chain gang out here, too, strolling the length of the field. You know we’re getting close when that motley crew hits the scene.

We’re almost there.
