Rematch of Super Bowl XLII: Different outcome for Eli, Giants in New England

Prediction: A different Patriots defense appears at Foxborough, and from time to time, they look like a stellar unit.  It’s a group that’s geared to “bend, but don’t break” because of a lack of consistent pass rush.  I have a hunch that the Giants will be able to move the ball well, but not execute in the red zone minus Bradshaw and Nicks.  With that said, look for Brady to track his dynamic duo at tight end and for BenJarvus Green-Ellis to be a difference-maker on key third-down situations, enabling New England to control the clock and sustain drives.  Patriots 25 Giants 22

    i dont know??? i think the patriots D is awful! They suck against the pass. Nicks or no Nicks I think Eli could have a a career game in the making if he is wise with his decisions on Sunday. Also like I said before all you Jacobs Haters are gonna see an angry pent up beast and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a breakout game!!
    If the Giants come out of the gate with a good game plan and the coaches actually wake up and do their jobs we could win this one. I really hope JPP can play that may be the difference maker for us? Tuck has got more going on then we know about cuz he is looking slow all of a sudden?? I hope Osi can get to Brady and make him throw INT’s or strip the ball. We need a few good playmakers to show up besides Nicks and Bradshaw every Sunday.
    My prediction Giants 28 Pats 20

      I’m leaning towards our boys as well. It will be rough, REALLY rough, especially if Nicks or JPP don’t play (I’m pretty much already accepting that Baas and Bradshaw won’t suit up), but I think the Pats pass D is the worst we’ve faced yet. I’m expecting a high scoring shootout similar to what the Pats saw in Buffalo. Giants 38 – Pats 31. Key to the game, HIT TOM BRADY!!

      • Chris says:

        I agree with the both of you but i think we will win by 10 or more. We are built to stop them, We have arguably the best safeties in the league matching up against there te’s. We also have 2 very able cover LB’s in Williams and Boley. Not to mention our nickel will allow us to double up on welker. And forget about branch any one of our DBs can erase him. I see us being very good against there O. The only issue with winning by 10 or more is i dont know how we are going to function on offence. I think it will be alright though. Go giants.

        • Jason C. says:

          With no Nicks and Bradshaw, for the first time all year, the offense needs to depend on the defense to keep them in the game. If Eli and the boys can keep the turnovers under 2, and JPP is good to go, there should be enough drives where we can take them out of their gameplan to keep things competitive. However if we let Brady consistently find himself in third and manageable, there could be some long, sustained, grueling drives, and with the inevitable three and outs we’ll have without a solid run game, things can get ugly. We need another 5+ sacks today, and IMO we get them.
