Testing MAF and TPS

Is it safe to drive the car with the MAF disconnected to test it? I disconnected the 4 wire connector and did notice a difference but it is still obviously missing.

Also tried the same with the TPS, can I try driving with that disconnected?

Would driving with either of these disconnected help me tell anything?

I can not tell what is the problem causing this miss and erratic idle.
