Which team will prevail?
The Patriots are led by the tight-end tandem of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, while the Giants are led by wide receivers Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and Mario Manningham.
Of course both teams have Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Eli Manning (NY Giants) and Tom Brady (New England Partiots).
The Partiots have a shaky defense that has played much improved in the playoffs.
Former Bears defensive end Mark Anderson has been the most consistent pass rusher besides Andre Carter for the Patriots.
The Giants have a vicious pass rush. Jason Pierre-Paul, Osi Umenyiora, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Justin Tuck have all been dominant during the playoffs.
New England has to get good protection from their offensive line because the biggest threat the Giants bring is from their defensive line.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will have a solid gameplan. Tom Brady isn’t the type of quarterback who has two straight bad games.
Look for the veteran quarterback to bounce back from a disappointing performance against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship.
Patriots 33, Giants 30.
The game will be close, but Tom Brady will prevail in the rematch of Super Bowl XLII. Don’t be shocked if Chad Ochocinco is a valuable piece of this offense as well.
