Coming off of an embarrassing loss to the New Orleans Saints, the New York Giants will look to bounce back on national TV against the Arizona Cardinals. The Giants’ pass rush will need to get to quarterback Kurt Warner if they want to have any chance of keeping this big play offense off of the scoreboard too much. Their secondary simply can not handle the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin if Warner has time in the pocket.
On the other side, Eli Manning should have a strong game against one of the weakest pass defenses in the league. Manning has shown that he likes to play under pressure, and a Sunday night game looks like a perfect time for him to shine. Also, the Giants’ strong running game needs to continue to produce if they want to remain an elite team in this league.
Overall, this should be a great battle between the last two NFC Champions on Sunday night.
Cardinals Inactives: QB Brian St. Pierre (Third quarterback), TE Dominique Byrd, WR Early Doucet, SAF Rashad Johnson, G Herman Johnson, T Brandon Keith, TE Stephen Spach, LB Reggie Walker
Giants Inactives: WR Ramses Barden, OLB Michael Boley, DE Chris Canty, RB Gartrell Johnson, T Adam Koets, T Kareem McKenzie, WR Sinorice Moss, CB Aaron Ross
