The chance to watch their team try to ruin the New England Patriots' perfect season won't be drawing many New York Giants fans to the Meadowlands on Saturday.

Many are selling their tickets to Patriots fans who want to see quarterback Tom Brady and his teammates go for a 16-0 record in their final regular-season game.

Internet auction sites that allow customers to buy and sell sports tickets have seen a surge in sales for the game by Giants fans, the Star-Ledger of Newark reported yesterday.

In the first 24 hours after the Giants beat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, more than 200 Giants ticket holders put their seats up for bid on the auction site eBay.

Tickets on StubHub have gone for as much as $1,600 apiece, spokeswoman Joellen Ferrer said.


Rookie quarterback JaMarcus Russell, the top pick in the 2007 draft, will get the first start of his career when Oakland ends its season Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, reported.


The NFL won't discipline Green Bay linebacker Nick Barnett for coming into contact with an official Sunday during a skirmish in the Packers' loss to Chicago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.


Starting left tackle Marvel Smith likely will miss his fourth game in the last six with a bad back that also could keep him out of the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Strong safety Troy Polamalu also could miss Sunday's game in Baltimore, because of a swollen knee.
