The big name that Giants' fans wanted to hear about was wide receiver Mario Manningham, who has been battling a knee injury. Manningham was a game-time decision. Unfortunately, he's not playing in the game. Quarterback Eli Manning needed all the help he could get to try and defeat a Saints' team that was undefeated in the Superdome this season. Not having Manningham is a big blow to the Giants' chances. Manningham has 34 catches for 404 yards and 3 touchdowns in 9 games this season.
The Saints have also released their inactives for tonight's contest.
