EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Peyton Manning finally found some time in retirement to get together with little brother Eli.Peyton showed up at the Giants walk-through workout Tuesday and discussed ftball, sat through part of a quarterbacks meeting and talked about playing against the Steelers, New Yorks opponent this weekend in Pittsburgh.Eli Manning was unaware his brother was going to show up at the teams facility, but he noted it was nice to see him.The Giants (8-3) have won six straight games -- their longest streak since 2008 -- and have a great chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.It was gd to have him here, Eli Manning said. I hadnt seen him in a while. He has something to do tomorrow, so he popped in and sat in on a few meetings with us today. Just gd to catch up. Ill get some time with him later on.Peyton Manning, dressed in pajamas, did a commercial before the season for DirecTV in which he had a hard time seeing Eli because his younger brother was playing on the days he wanted to meet.Eli Manning said Peyton seems to be adjusting to life after ftball, adding that he is staying busy and enjoying his down time.However, the longtime Giants quarterback said its obvious his brother enjoys being around ftball.I think when he gets in this environment, he was kind of drilling the coaches on questions, Manning said. I know he liked being in there and doing a little install on Pittsburgh. Im sure he misses that environment, just the game plan, how youre going to do things, how youre going to deal with protections, how youre going to pick things up, just really getting back into that flow of things. Im sure it is a little reminder of how special it is to be in this situation.Manning said his brother will watch his games and send him text messages afterward, telling him he made a gd throw on some play or asking questions about certain plays or what the offense was running.Thats kind of always been the case, Manning said, adding the two have always tried to watch each other play. Its gd communication about what is going on.The Giants offense can use some help. It has scored 231 points this season, which is 21st in the league. There has been no consistency.Were just a few plays away, Manning said. You score 21, its not like we scored 10. Were just not getting down in the red zone enough. Thats the deal.The Giants tried to switch things up last week and go with the deep ball. Manning threw six long passes against the Cleveland Browns in a 27-13 win, but he hit only one.Stepping up this week will be important when facing Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (6-5), winners of two straight.We have our expectations of what we want to do and how we want to score, Manning said. We feel we can score. Weve been gd the last few weeks protecting the ball, thats number one. Its not about forcing things trying to score. We have to execute well, play smart and make the plays that are there.The Giants have made enough plays to get back in the playoff hunt this season with five games to go. In the last three seasons, New York has had little to play for down the home stretch.You can get spoiled early in your career when four years in a row you make the playoffs, Manning said. You assume that is kind of the norm. You play long enough you realize it isnt. It is special to be in contention to make the playoffs, and especially after the last couple being out early.Game notes The Giants placed RB Orleans Darkwa on injured reserve with a leg injury. LB-S Eric Pinkins was signed off the practice squad to take his spot on the roster. ... G Brett Jones, who injured a calf in a start against Cincinnati on Nov. 14, hopes to return to practice Wednesday. ... Starting LG Justin Pugh had a setback last week trying to return from a strained knee and seemingly will be out a little longer. ... Manning said he apologized to rkie WR Sterling Shepard for not targeting him in last weeks game. ... PK Robbie Gould tk the blame for missing his third PAT in the past two games. I just missed it.

Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. There has never been any question about both Arsenal and Manchester City having style, but the debate over whether they have the substance to be Premier League champions continues to rage.Despite owning the last two Champions League spots in the table, both Arsenal and Manchester City have armed critics with plenty of skepticism over whether either or both can possibly overtake Chelsea by seasons end heading into Sundays crunch clash of these top-four teams at the Etihad.Much of it has to do with the flowing style of play both employ, a direct contrast to the bld-and-thunder mantra of the Premier League. English fans have long favoured the crunching physical tackle and the challenge of 50/50 balls in the air over the one-touch passes designed to open up defences to exploit via through balls.While Arsene Wenger has built up some capital in his two decades on the Arsenal touchline to deflect barbs and criticisms, it is the arrival of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City (10-3-3) that has added fire to this debate throughout the club backrms and pubs of England.Wenger tk to Guardiolas defense ahead of the midweek matches this week, after Guardiola claimed he wasnt a coach for the tackles, so I dont train the tackles after Manchester Citys 3-1 loss at Leicester City. Its not surprising given the two share a kindred spirit in how they construct offencesPep Guardiola, like myself, we are for offensive ftball. And when you dont win, people question that. And thats as simple as that, the Gunners boss said. Overall, I think what he wanted to say is that he promoted a game that is positive and I agree with him on that. You respect him for that.At first, it lked like Guardiola was every bit the genius tipped by supporters upon his takeover of City from Bayern Munich -- the team stormed out of the gate to win their first 10 matches in all competitions, including their Champions League playoff to enter the group stages.But that swagger has given way to a City side struggling to find its defensive identity as Guardiola tinkers with his backline on a match-to-match basis. As well as a shift in opponents philosophy to simply let the Citizens pass the ball around the middle of the pitch and then dare them to pile drive through two banks of defenders in the final third.Their 2-0 home win over Watford on Wednesday was more persistence than panache -- defender Pablo Zabaleta finished off a nice cross from Kevin De Bruyne in the first half, and David Silva sealed the three points with a goal on 86 minutes as City struck on the counter as Watford threw numbers forward in search of an equaliser.The victory, though, came at a high price as Guardiola lost Ilkay Gundogan to a torn ACL, a season-ending injury that puts a gaping hole in the midfield for both Citys Premier League title hopes as well as their Champions League aspirations come the knockout stages in February.It is so, so difficult for him, its sad for him, were going to miss him a lot, its unlucky, but thats ftball, Guardiola told the teams official website.Now we need him to feel we are there and wait and come back safe. Hes going to be operated (upon) and be back as sn as possible.Gundogan will be the fourth key regular out for this match for Guardiola. Defender and talisman Vincent Kompany remains sidelined due to injury while forward and top scorer Sergio Aguero and midfielder Fernandinho continue to serve their four and three-match bans, respectively, for their rles in a brawl at the end of their 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Dec.dddddddddddd3.On the plus side, Yaya Toure has excelled in the midfield since returning to Guardiolas gd graces last month. There is still plenty of quality in the attack with De Bruyne, Silva, and Raheem Sterling in the midfield. It will be interesting to see if Guardiola opts for a solo striker approach again after using Nolito atop a 4-1-4-1 formation versus Watford and leaving Kelechi Iheanacho on the bench.You know the reason why he was out in the first part of the season, Guardiola said about Toure. Now he is playing like he can be, like I met him at Barcelona. Theres no doubt about his quality.Wenger is no stranger to the criticisms that come with his style of play, and some seasons they are louder than others given Arsenals fixture in the top four of the table while not winning any Premier League titles since last lifting the trophy in 2004.But the all-t familiar questions were being asked again after a 2-1 defeat at Everton on Wednesday dropped the Gunners (10-4-2) into third -- behind Liverpl on goal difference, one point better than Manchester City and six adrift of rampaging Chelsea.The Toffees tk the match to Arsenal in the second half, utilising that physical style of play Arsenal rarely answer. Wenger felt rightly aggrieved by an error by referee Mark Clattenburg that resulted in an Everton corner that led to Ashley Williams eventual match-winner on 86 minutes, but he also noted his team seemed to back down as Everton grew in the ascendancyWe lost the game because I feel we started well and after that maybe we lost a bit of urgency because we were a bit t comfortable and then Everton made it very physical. Overall, I believe that from then on it disturbed our game and we created less flow going forward.We didnt create t many but we had clear-cut chances in the game we didnt take. After that you can be caught away from home on a corner like that.Like Guardiola, Wenger is dealing with some key absences due to injury, most notably central defender Shkodran Mustfai and holding midfielder Santi Carzola. Denny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker continue to be long-term injury absences. Wenger also again addressed the issue of contract extensions for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom have 18 months remaining on their respective deals.You waste your time because these players have 18 months on their contracts and I dont see why there is any urgency in every press conference to have that question, Wenger mused. Maybe you lack a bit of creativity in the newspapers and you always come up with the same subject. I dont see why that should turn up in every press conference.Arsenal tk four points in the two games between the teams last season, posting a 2-1 victory at the Emirates and scrambling from a pair of one-goal deficits to forge a 2-2 tie at the Etihad. Olivier Giroud scored in both matches, and Sanchez scored the equaliser in the corresponding fixture. De Bruyne and Aguero netted the two goals for City.The Gunners are unbeaten in their last five (2-3-0) against City but also have just two wins in their last nine trips (2-2-5) to the blue side of Manchester. Arsenal have won 23 of the 38 all-time Premier League matches between the teams, while all six of Citys wins have come since 2006. ' ' '
