EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett walked out to the patio of the New York Giants headquarters expecting to talk about the season opener against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

It was a topic as vivid for him on Thursday as it was on Sept. 11, 2001: The terrorist attacks that stunned the United States. A backup quarterback and holder for the Giants, Garrett spoke from the heart for nearly three minutes about the attacks that claimed almost 3,000 lives and led to a ramped-up U.S. involvement in a fight against terrorism.
