    I would love it if Edelman scored twice once on a punt and once on D the media would be stunned bur we would as fans wouldn't be all that shocked.

    What other things do you see would be like that.

    I Patriot blowout....... For some reason, the closer this game gets, the more comfortable I get. I wouldn't be shocked to see a 14 point win. I expect a close game, but it wouldn't shock me.

    A decent defensive performance, holding them to 20 or less.

    #85 TD? maybe.

    Two things: Ocho having his best game yet in a Patriots uniform and Edelman at the least holding his own as a slot db.

    My Jersey:

    On defense: Multiple INTs.

    The natural offensive strategy for the Giants is to assume they'll have a war at the LOS, but rely on Manning and the WRs to connect anyway. Along that path lies danger.

    On offense: I'm not sure. I'd say "power running", but if the Gronkle weakens his blocking that might not be the plan.

    McCourty was such a ball hawk year one, but not this season. I could see him having an INT, maybe even two in the super bowl.

    Well I don't know if most here saw it coming but I'm going with: The Patriots defense is a lot better than Giants defense and after the Super Bowl they will finish top 10 in the NFL.

    They've currently worked their way up to 11th in points allowed per game for the season.

    1 Pittsburgh 15.1
    2 San Francisco 15.6
    3 Baltimore 16.8
    4 Houston 17.1
    5 Cleveland 19.2
    6 Miami 19.6
    7 Seattle 19.7
    8 Tennessee 19.8
    9 Philadelphia 20.5
    10 Jacksonville 20.6
    11 New England 20.7

    If they keep the Giants to 17 they'll finish #9...

    ...and still be called the worst defense in the NFL.

    Nate Solder goalline TD catch.

    Lots of substitutions and looks on the Dline. Production from all. G. Warren and S. Ellis makes some plays.

    Special teams and defensive scores from the Patriots would be most welcomed in the Superbowl.

    How about the Patriots out pass-rushing the Giants, as we've done in the playoffs this year but isn't generally being acknowledged?

    Running the ball down they're throats in stead of trying to pass, conversely putting pressure on manning resulting on a couple of INT's

    The Pats defense playing well and the Giants D-line being a non-factor in this game.

    The Pats running game being extremely successful against the Giants.

    The Pats No-Huddle forcing the Giants to fake injuries to the point where 2 guys go down, and then one pops back up after looking around and ends up drawing a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct..

    I feel the same way, I think it will be a 3 touch down win... then again, I might just be a crazy homer. So far, I am 1/2 for blow out predictions this post season.

    my prediction is a breakout game for brandon spikes.


    i am talking a forced fumble AND pick 6, something along those lines


    i have grown more and more confident about this game as the week goes on. so much so that i decided to go from being a lurker here to actually registering

    Pats win by 20+.

    4-1 edge in TOs.

    Ocho has a big contribution.

    We have a big performance by special teams.

    The D is outstanding and keeps Manning confused and on edge all day.
