In their meeting during the regular season the New England Patriots were able to out stat the New York Giants. The Patriots totaled 438 offensive yards and the Giants pushed across 361 yards. New England committed a very high four turnovers in the game yet only lost the game 24-20 on a grass field. Tonight’s Super Bowl will be competed on a fast track on the home of the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Field. The New York Giants defense has not played well on the fast surface as the team gave up a combined 111 points in three games which averages out to 37 points a game. Also note during the time of this game the Patriots mind was on the New York Jets as they were the team New England was focused on separating from to ensure an AFC east division title. The spot was horrible at the time for New England because they had just faced Pittsburgh and had a divisional game against the rival New York Jets a week later.
You very seldom see Tom Brady have back to back poor games. You looked at his expression following the AFC championship game and it looked like a player that lost instead of won. Look for Brady to utilize the short passing game and spreading out the Giants defense to neutralize their pass rush. The short passes will open up plays for them to go deep at the Giants secondary. We have seen some shaky performances from New York in the secondary as they got beat deep for two big play touchdowns in the NFC championship game as Vernon Davis got behind them. With the Patriots full focus on the New York Giants and no worry of a big game the following week expect New England to have a solid game plan in place to go at this Giants secondary.
