The Patriots will destroy the Giants just as the Ravens did in 2001.
For the past few weeks,I've been posting all over the Internet that the Giants were a lock to make the Super Bowl because the stock market was headed for a collapse(Every time they make it,the market has a bad year).When it started slding in December,I knew they were in.
I'll take 38-10.

i dont think it will be as close as the last game. the giants relyed on a big pass at the beginning of the game and jumped out to a 7-0 lead.
then a kick off return for a touchdown, the odds are neither will happen this time.

Randy Moss has had what 2 catches in the last two games? I expect Moss to have more than two catches in the Superbowl. I don't expect Brady to throw three interceptions either.
The Giants are playing otherwise they would not be playing in the Superbowl. Having said that I believe it will be a good game, I do expect the Patriots to win. Is it true they will open the roof? The Patriots should have a good passing game and hopefully Maroney will continue to do as he has been doing.
I don't think the Patriots will cover the spread but I expect them to win by a touchdown.

My prediction is based on parallels I see with the 2007 Red Sox.
Both the Pats and Sox won the tougher conference/league. The opponent isn’t/wasn't considered the strongest team, but got hot at the right time. They are playing a team that played them tough in the regular season (the Rockies won 2 of 3 in Fenway). Therefore, I predict the Pats will win easily, similar to how the Sox swept the Rockies .

(colorado rockies, anyone?)the conditions in arizona will be similar to those of the early part of the season. you remember the early part of the season, right? that's when new england began to get flack for "running up the score"...new england football patriots: 38new jersey giants: 24history waits..

This team tried to end or perfect 16-0 regular season, and now they're back to try to endo or perfect 19-0 season and our Superbowl dreams. I have only one thing to say, and that is.................
Go Patriots!!!!Navy blue to represent where BB came from

It's actually more of an old AFL vs NFL thing. Brady's foot is in a boot cast? ...Well if he was really hurt I bet they'd have him prone.
