The Giants will be without LB Michael Boley, who will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury. He was listed as "doubtful" on Saturday, but he did not travel with the Giants to New Orleans on Sunday afternoon.
That would put the Giants' defense in the same predicament they were last week vs Philadelphia - with rookies in key spots. But this week they will have Drew Brees to contend with, not Vince Young. Brees leads the NFL in passing yards with 3,326.
