    Super Bowl Wrap, Giants Made Plays Patriots Let Opportunities Slip Away
    By: Steve Balestrieri

    But perhaps the biggest play was the one that didn't get called.The Patriots used it as one of its biggest weapons, keeping opponents off-balance and not allowing them to freely substitute, wearing them down. Yet the Patriots ran hurry up for only 9 of 62...

    I guess the Gronk injury hurt the no-huddle?

    Coulda shoulda woulda. The gameplan was largely fine. The fact is this team needed to make one or two more plays to win and it couldn't. That's it.

    Simple answer, IMO. The no-huddle depends on GRONKnandez, AND it takes a toll on the Pats, too. With GRONK hobbled, they couldn't run it as much as they would have liked.

    Kirwan is spot on as usual. I'll wait for the answer from Bill...

    Not so sure. You would of figured the Pats would of tried to enhance it after the last game. Seattle clobbered the Giants with it, you would figure the Pats could of used it to their advantage at some point. Gronk injury as some suggested could of been key.

    This one is easy. The Giants had the ball 37 mins. The Patriots had the ball 22 mins, including only 3 mins in the 1st quarter. Pats run hurry up the entire game, the discrepancy is even greater.

    I think people should check the game log..the answer is clear. Look at how many possessions the Pats had in the 2nd half, the circumstances, and what happened.

    1st drive of second half, drove down the field for a TD
    2nd drive.- 3 and out, 3rd down sack by Tuck(Brady hurt)
    3rd drive - only had ball for 1 minute, INT on 2nd play of 4th quarter.
    4th drive- started from own 8 with 9:24 to go...move ball down the field to Giants 44 yard line...drive ended with the Welker, Branch drops.
    5th drive- only 57 seconds left
