I think they do to shell shock the Giants. Speed up the game and take advantage of the butterflies of the Giants and probably go deep early. Before they know it they are down 14-0. If you watch week 17 the two halves are totally opposite. The major factor being blitzing Eli second half and giving him free reign in first half. Also red zone offense for Pats sputtered in the first half. If the Giants go down 14 pts I think they are in a bit of trouble. Game not totally done, but put the game on Eli's shoulders and things are gonna start to crumble. I can't see the Pats coming out in a 3TE set and running on their first drive. I think they get aggressive.
