You must factor in for New England the multiple weapons Tom Brady will have in the passing game firing off the line of scrimmage on a speed favoring track. This will allow the Patriots quarterback to increase his release time which will help slow down the Giants pass rush.
One must also factor the possibility of the Patriots to increase the amount of plays in the game by utilizing the no huddle offense. New England is very good in this offensive set and will impact the ability of the Giants defense to implement down and distance defensive substitutions on the field.
