A Super Bowl prediction
First off, I am never picking a game to be bad again. They never are, no matter how much it seems they should be. I think the Giants will win, because that is the most annoying result possible, but also because the Patriots haven’t played any tough teams on the road or at a neutral site this season.
Their offense goes through tight ends and is easily disrupted by a good D-Line and coverage LBs and a well played zone. Oh right, that’s what the Giants have. There isn't really a thing the Patriots should do about it either. Keep an extra guy into to block the active Giants line? Well, then that's fewer people to cover for the Giants secondary, and more attention can be paid to Hernandez and Gronkowski. It's going to be a tough matchup for New England on the offensive side of the ball. Also, the Giants have been playing better through the postseason, and I am inclined to go with the hot hand.
Despite what I said about the offense struggling against New York, the Pats will put points up. I am expecting a score in the neighborhood of 38-35.
