Super Bowl 46 Preview and Pick: New York Giants vs New England Patriots

The Super Bowl is finally here!

The Giants and Patriots are preparing to face off in Indianapolis, and it may surprise many to find out that Peyton Manning is not taking part in the game. He has been talked about so much this week that is may seem like he is preparing to play. It is his home stadium, for now, but Eli of course will be the only Manning taking part in the game.

Super Bowl 46 Preview: New York Giants

jacobs-bradshaw-giants-patriots-super-bowl-46-preview-predictionThe Giants come in as underdogs, but many are picking them as the favorites. They have won their last five games, and their last two wins have come against the top two seeds in the NFC in Green Bay and San Francisco.

New York beat the Pats once this season, which came in Week 9. The teams combined to score 31 points in the fourth quarter, but the Giants held on to win 24-20. The Patriots outgained the Giants 438-361, but four turnovers by the Pats were the difference in the game.

The key for the Giants will be to get the running game going early. They were the worst team in the NFL in terms of rushing yards during the regular season, but they rushed for 111 yards against New England in Week 9. Getting Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw going early will let the Giants dictate the game and keep the ball away from Tom Brady.

On defense, the Giants have turned it around since they were 7-7. They finished the year by allowing 14 points in consecutive games and have allowed a total of 37 points in the first three postseason games. A healthy defensive line will give the Pats’ trouble all game, and will help keep the score low.

Super Bowl 46 Preview: New England Patriots

The Patriots barely made it to Indy and can thank Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff for their berth in the Super Bowl. After a commanding victory over the Broncos, the Patriots barely won two weeks ago against the Ravens. Baltimore is a tough football team, but New England will have to play much better this week if they want to win the Super Bowl.

Rob Gronkowski giants-patriots-super-bowl-46-preview-predictionTom Brady was held to 239 yards passing last week and threw two interceptions. That is the same number of interceptions that he threw against the Giants in their first meeting this season. He will have to be much more careful with the ball, as the Giants defense is even better than they were earlier in the year.

ROB GRONKOWSKI.

His name has been mentioned so many times this week because he was wearing a walking boot, but he is in fact playing. This should come as a surprise to no one, as Gronk would only miss this game if he could not help his team at all. The actual news lies in how much he will be able to help his team, as he and Tom Brady hooked up for 17 touchdowns during the regular season. He is a key component to the Patriots offense, and his production will be talked about throughout the game.

The Patriots defense has to play better than they have been all year. They allowed 398 yards to an average Baltimore offense last week and were 31st in passing defense during the regular season. The Packers found out the hard way that having a bad defense will catch up to you eventually, but the Patriots will try to survive one more game with their weak defense.

Super Bowl 46 Pick

Eli will back up his claims of calling himself elite, while also winning his second Super Bowl in his brother’s home stadium.

Prediction: Giants 30 | Patriots 24

  1. Good analysis, I think the game will go in favor of the Giants as they do seem to have the momentum and be the better team right now. That being said, Gronk is key, if he's 90% healthy we might not get a repeat of four years ago. I picked 31-28 Giants here – http://theendisalwaysnear.blogspot.com/2012/02/xl
