NFL - Super Bowl 46 Preview


NEW YORK GIANTS vs. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS


Super Bowl 46 features a rematch between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots, who squared off four years ago in Super Bowl 42, with the Giants pulling off the upset, 17-14.

That was then and this is now.

Granted, the Giants did march into New England in early November and beat the Pats, 24-20 behind a stellar defensive effort and quarterback Eli Manning showing poise in the clutch as he did in the final Super Bowl march that netted the Giants the Vince Lombardi trophy back following the 2007 season.



The Giants (9-7 in regular season) have been rolling since losing four in a row in mid-November to early December that left them with a 6-6 record at the time. They finished the season winning the final two games to win the NFC East.
In the playoffs, they have been stellar, crushing the Atlanta Falcons (in the Meadowlands) 24-2 and then traveling to Green Bay and dethroning the mighty Packers, 37-20.
Following that effort, they knocked off the San Francisco 49ers on the road in the NFC Championship Game, 20-17 in overtime.

KEY PLAYER- QB Eli Manning





Meanwhile, the Patriots (13-3 regular season record) have won ten straight games dating back to a loss against Pittsburgh at the end of October, followed by the loss to the Giants, and come into this game with a 15-3 mark behind a record setting offense led by QB Tom Brady.
In the playoffs, they have also been stellar, beating down the surprising Denver Broncos, 45-10 in the Divisional Round before disposing of the Baltimore Ravens, 23-20 in the AFC Championship Game.

KEY PLAYER- QB Tom Brady





PREDICTION- These two teams have faced each other and this should be another close game that could very well go down to the wire once again.
Only this time, it will be the New England Patriots winning, 28-24 as Tom Brady gets the honor of leading the final game winning drive.

    I really hope you're wrong just because I think the pats are too arrogant
