Mike Tomlin doesn't expect Hurricane Sandy to derail the National Football League.

The Pittsburgh Steelers coach said Tuesday he believes Sunday's game in New York against the Giants to go on as scheduled and plans to prepare that way even as New York and New Jersey dig out from the massive storm.

Tomlin said he understands the league will look at any logistical issues the storm's aftermath may present but added the Steelers will stick to their weekly routine unless they hear from NFL officials.

Pittsburgh (4-3) has won two straight to climb back into the thick of the muddled AFC but will be without safety Troy Polamalu against the Giants. Polamalu will miss his third straight game and fifth overall this season due to a strained right calf.
