Joe Thomas was in the booth for the Browns versus. Steelers game.
He didn’t appear to be playing in the Giants’ preseason game on Sunday afternoon, but it appeared like he was.
What is the reason for this?
He was dripping wet since he was working up a sweat.

It’s easy to see why Thomas was having difficulties keeping his calm.
Despite this, fans continued to make jokes about Thomas’ pit sweat.

Preview, team news, and predictions for the New York Giants vs. Cleveland Browns game on August 22nd, 2021.

The New York Giants have endured a grueling training camp, which has already resulted in two brawls.
One was against their own offense and defense, which left starting quarterback Daniel Jones at the bottom of the standings.
Joe Judge, the head coach of the New York Giants, made the entire team run as if they were in training to be Navy SEALs.
The second incident occurred on Friday, when New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard and Cleveland Browns cornerback Troy Hill threw punches at each other during a joint practice ahead of their preseason matchup in Week 2.
New York may struggle in their upcoming game based on joint practices.
Cleveland produced a scoring drive during 11-on-11 drills, while the Giants had a quick three-and-out.
After today’s joint practices, #Giants WR Sterling Shepard and #Browns CB Troy Hill squared up and were ready to throw punches.
John Ross appears to have stepped in and gotten Shepard out of there.
This is the final few seconds.
( @clevelanddotcom)pic.twitter.com/HqZqsANL56 — Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) August 20, 2021 Team News RB Saquon Barkley, WR Kenny Golladay, and WR Kadarius Toney have all been ruled out for this game by the New York Giants.
Joe Judge has yet to make a decision on the playing time of other starters, including quarterback Daniel Jones.
CB Keion Crossen, CB Josh Jackson ll, and OL Ted Larsen, all new roster additions, could see plenty of action.
After suffering a concussion, QB Clayton Thorson was dismissed and replaced by QB Brian Lewerke, who should play the most of the second half.
RIDICULOUS catch by Donovan Peoples-Jones pic.twitter.com/2ivENKXaa2 — Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) August 14, 2021 Cleveland Browns HC Kevin Stefanski will rest most of his starters after witnessing good work from them in joint practice.
With Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. presumably out, expect WR Donovan Peoples-Jones to continue to shine on the field.
DT Malik McDowell (who might be cut by Tuesday if he doesn’t make an impact) and LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (who is hoping to rise up the depth chart after leading the club in tackles last week) are two players to keep an eye on on defense.
Cleveland Browns 27-17 Cleveland Browns The Browns are 4.5-point favorites at -200 to win the game.
They have a chance to win by at least ten points.
After leading the Browns in tackles and tackles for loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars (8 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 sack), rookie LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah could be the game’s MVP.
After a total of 28 carries for 41 yards (1.6 yards per carry), Cleveland’s run game has to improve.
When they sort out the bottom of their WR depth chart in the second half, the New York Giants are expected to throw the ball more.
With Barkley out, RB Corey Clement could get a plenty of carries in the first quarter.

Alvin Kamara and Tyrann Mathieu slam the Giants’ co-owner for his “corny” mocking stance.

NFL superstars Alvin Kamara and Tyrann Mathieu took to Twitter to criticize New York Giants president John Mara for saying the NFL’s Competition Committee was “sick and tired of the talking” on the field.
“We get kind of sick & weary of the taunting that does go on from time to time on the field,” says #Giants owner John Mara, who is also a member of the Competition Committee.
Nobody likes it when another player taunts them.
The NFL has instructed its officials to aggressively enforce the taunting regulations for upcoming season. pic.twitter.com/HDGQSnvsYQ — Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) August 17, 2021
If a player receives two taunting penalties in a game, they will be expelled and fined or suspended, depending on the severity of the offense.
“(The Competition Committee) gets kind of sick and weary of the discussion that does go on from time to time on the field,” Mara remarked.
We attempted to strike a balance between sportsmanship and enabling the players to have fun, and while there is always a narrow line to walk, none of us like seeing that.
It’s simply a issue of whether you can have regulations that can be enforced without detracting from the fun of the game, but no one wants to see a player harass another player.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think so.
“I believe the rest of the Competition Committee feels the same way.” During the first weekend of preseason games, fans and players got a taste of what to expect in terms of taunting penalties.
On Twitter, what did Kamara and Mathieu have to say about John Mara?
Tyrann Mathieu of the Kansas City Chiefs was one of the first NFL players to respond to Mara’s comments, tweeting, “So shut up and play? Got it.”
I got it.
https://t.co/9YrOmSIBup — Tyrann Mathieu (@Mathieu_Era) August 17, 2021 Mathieu’s reaction refers to Laura Ingraham’s infamous comments about NBA superstar LeBron James on Fox News.
Ingraham raged into James in a clip on her show after he lambasted former US President Donald Trump.
Ingraham received a lot of backlash for her distasteful segment on James, with many accusing her of being racist. She said she wasn’t interested in political advice from “someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball” and added that James should “shut up and dribble.”
Green Bay Packers safety Adrian Amos also responded to John Mara’s statements on Twitter, calling them “corny as hell.” New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara called Mara’s words “corny as hell.”
“I blame that terrible rap music,” he said, referring to what critics of the genre – typically elderly people – remark when pointing out bad connotations linked with hip-hop/rap music.
“I blame that awful rap music” https://t.co/tu22x4QD0T — Adrian Amos (@_SmashAmos31) August 17, 2021 The majority of NFL fans and players are already unhappy with the league’s new taunting penalties, and Mara’s comments further fueled to the flames.

For the first time since the end of 2019, the Giants had supporters at MetLife Stadium.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. AP National Sports By TOM CANAVAN, AP Sports Writer
The New York Giants returned to MetLife Stadium in front of their home crowd for the first time since the end of the 2019 season.
It was simply a training camp exercise, but it was clear that it meant a lot to the players and fans to reconnect after the 2020 NFL season was canceled due to the pandemic and games were played in front of 78,000 empty seats.
The Giants distributed 50,000 tickets to fans who requested them, with just under 29,000 people attending the so-called Fan Fest, according to the team.
When the about 90 players and coaches went onto the field, the crowd erupted in applause.
Fans erupted in applause after a handful of great plays and touchdown passes, one of which was thrown by Daniel Jones to Alfred Morris.

Watch: Throughout Giants training camp, Saquon Barkley seemed to be in top form.

After missing all but two games last season due to a ruptured ACL, star running back Saquon Barkley will be crucial to the New York Giants’ success in 2021.
According to reports coming out of Giants camp, the former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year will sit out the preseason and is doubtful to play against the Denver Broncos in Week 1.
That might very well be a suspicious perspective of his situation based on what we saw throughout summer practice.
Barkley appears to have fully recovered on his return to practice.

Is Josh Allen joining the Patriots? On the Giants, Dak Prescott? Which of the NFL’s rivals would have the most impact on each team?

What if you took some of the finest players in the NFL and traded them to a division rival?
While all three AFC East opponents would want to add Bills quarterback Josh Allen to their rosters, the same cannot be said for AFC West rivals and Patrick Mahomes.
It’s not true for NFC West opponents and Aaron Donald, either. Here’s who our writers would choose if they could only have one player from a rival team:AFC East
