Here are the Giants inactives:
WR Rames Barden, RB Da'Rel Scott, LB Mark Herzlich, OL Jim Cordle, DE Justin Trattou, DT Jimmy Kennedy, OL James Brewer.
No surprises there. Those are the same inactives the Giants have had throughout the playoffs.
The inactives for the Patriots are:
DL Ron Brace, QB Ryan Mallett, RB Kevin Faulk, RB Shane Vereen, LB Gary Guyton, OL Donald Thomas, OL Nick McDonald.
Bit of a surprise that Faulk is inactive. This could be his final game after a long and productive career. It means Chad Ochocinco is active. So is Alex Silvestro, the defensive lineman who was added to the Patriots' roster last night when Tiquan Underwood was waived.
