INJURY REPORT

The Giants will be without RB Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot), CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring), S Kenny Phillips (knee) and S Tyler Sash (hamstring). Rookie Jayron Hosley , who has come on since early-season difficulties, would be next up against an excellent WR corps with Antrell Rolle playing the nickel corner spot.

David Wilson , fresh off his breakout performance last week, will be leaned on heavily again. WR Hakeem Nicks , as usual, will have to contend with a sore knee. Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) will be a gametime decision. CB Asante Samuel is battling a shoulder injury that kept him out of last week’s game.

KEY MATCHUP

TE Tony Gonzalez vs. S Antrel Rolle and LB Jacquian Williams

Gonzalez isn’t playing like an old man. More than ever he’s on a mission to get to a Super Bowl and this is his best chance yet. He’s been a red zone handful for every opponent. With Rolle at nickel corner, the speedy Williams will have a big part in defending Gonzalez. Perry Fewell’s Big Nickel package has been especially tough on tight ends. But Gonzalez may be the best of all time." Read more...

The G'men are down a few starters which makes this more challenging. Can only hope that they can pull it off today!

Only the Prince will be missed, Bradshaw needed to rest, Phillips might as well retire and Sash barely plays. Holsey has shown promise but has also been a little over agressive and been beat but overall will make Ryan make good throws or Brown will have another big day at Safety.

The Giants are already in playoff mode. They can not lose.
