There's been a lot of discussion about offense and defense, Brady and Manning, and the Welker non-catch. Not nearly enough credit has been given to Weatherford and the Giants special teams, IMHO. 7 of the 9 Patriots drives started at or inside the Patriots' 20. In comparison, 8 of the 9 Giants drives started outside of the Giants' own 20. Average starting field position... - Patriots: 15.9 yard line - Giants: 24.6 yard line It's like the Patriots spotted the Giants a first down on every single drive. In a game as close as this one, that's absolutely huge.
