No one other than Giant fans and Patriot fans thought it would come down to this. The New York Giants will take on the New England Patriots in Glendale, Arizona this Sunday. It’s the ultimate underdog versus the fantastic favorite. Let’s take a look at how both teams got to XLII.
Patriots: The Pats are a team that could be considered the best team ever if they win. Here’s a look at their season so far.
- The Spy-Gate scandal was one of the worst scandals in NFL history. The Patriots were caught filming game plans of the Jets from their sideline. All footage was destroyed, but the memory remains…
- They’re undefeated, going 18-0 in the regular season and the post-season. They’ve beaten some of the best teams in the season, including the Colts and the Cowboys.
- The Pats were criticized in their play as well as their “tapes”. Many players, including the offensive line, were accused of playing dirty. It was also leaked that they taped the Rams in 2002. The practice was before the Super Bowl.
- Tom Brady had a stellar year, but he also had a ton of problems. A big deal was made when Brady had shoulder problems. He also hurt his ankle during the AFC Championship game.
- An 0-2 start was rough, considering it was against Dallas and Green Bay.
- The G-Men rebounded with 6 straight victories. It put them in the thick of the playoff hunt.
- This team is loosely dubbed as “the road warriors”. They have won 10 straight, the largest momentum carried in team history.
- Eli Manning went from a bad QB to a man on a mission. Eli has shown leadership during this crucial time, and he is looking forward to start in XLII.
It all comes down to this. Who will win this epic showdown? The Giants have a lot of momentum in their favor. The Patriots have it all on the line, as a perfect season is in their grasp. It’s all about field position and clock management. It’s also about endurance, and one way or another, history will be made:
GIANTS 28, PATRIOTS 27
Well that’s it for today. I hope you guys enjoy the Super Bowl. Until then, stay cool you KNUCKLEHEADS!!!
