Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka missed the Super Bowl four years ago with an injury, and he’s chomping at the bit to play this time around.
Kiwanuka said on Monday that he and his teammates are completely focused and could step onto the field and play the game today.
“It was all business,” Kiwanuka said of the flight to Indianapolis. “We have been ready to go. We could have lined up and played yesterday if we had to, so everybody is just focused and ready to get the game going.”
Kiwanuka scoffed at the media for trying to make Tom Brady’s comments at the team’s pep rally into some kind of trash talk, so he isn’t looking for that kind of external motivation. But he does sound motivated.
