In a rematch of Super Bowl XLII this Sunday it’s the Giants Vs. the Pats.

Matchups

Justin Tuck and Tom Brady: Tuck could have easily been Bowl XLII MVP. It will be interesting to see how Giants defensive coordinator utilizes Tuck he has found success rushing from the d-tackle spot as well as end and linebacker.

 

Eli Vs. the World: earlier this year Eli said he was Elite and said he was in the same class as Brady. This weekend he gets to go head to head with that statement. He will also not be able to rely on the running game which has been anemic as of late and has taken another hit with its leading rusher breaking his foot. If that wasn’t enough Eli’s number one target Hakeem Nicks is expected to miss the game and Mario Manningham had miss practice all week with an undisclosed illness. Eli will have to excel by using receivers he hasn’t spent much time with this season.

 

Victor Cruz and the Pats DB’s: Nicks is down Manningham has missed practice all week and most likely the starting receiver across from him will have just come off the PUP list and will see his first action of the season. Cruz needs to have a big game and will probably see regular safety help given to covering him.

Prediction:

If the Giants sack Brady like they did in Bowl XLII then they win if they don’t they lose. I see a high scoring affair Giants get up big to overcome for their coach 31:28
