The New York Giants upset the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl four years ago to spoil New England’s undefeated season, and they’ll beat them again in tonight’s Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium. Look for the game to be a high-scoring affair: the New York Giants ranked 27th among the 32 NFL teams in total defense during the regular season. The New England Patriots ranked next-to-last.
I temper that prediction with the knowledge that offenses are not quite as prolific in Super Bowls, and both teams played far better defense during the playoffs. Whatever the score ends up being, however, the Giants will be on top.
Kickoff of Super Bowl 2012 is scheduled for 6:29pm Eastern Time.
