The 2012 Super Bowl has been set with the New England Patriots representing the AFC and the New York Giants coming out of the NFC. Not only should this be one of the better Super Bowl matchups over the last decade or so, but this one is special with the Patriots looking to avenge their lost to the Giants from when these two teams met back in 2007.
With the Giants ending the perfect season for the Patriots back in 2007, this game will almost certainly be personal for New England as Tom Brady and company try to prove that they are the better team this time around. This should be a classic Super Bowl showdown with the Giants’ defense trying to get the best of the Patriots potent offense.
In the AFC Championship against the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday, NFL MVP candidate Tom Brady had an uncharacteristically bad game. With two interceptions and no touchdown thrown, Brady struggled to get his potent offense going through the air. Brady did record one key rushing touchdown for the Patriots, but he wasn’t the different maker in this game with running back Benjarvus Green-Ellis stealing the show with 68 yards rushing and a rushing touchdown.
On Feb. 5 in Indianapolis, the New England Patriots will have to shake off the rust offensively and get back to work against yet another tough defense in the form of the New York Giants. The official spread for the Super Bowl hasn’t been released just yet, but chances are the Patriots are the favorites to come out on top for Tom Brady’s fourth Super Bowl title under head coach Bill Belichick.
Even though the Patriots will most likely be the favorites in Super Bowl XLVI (46), Tom Brady and company will have their work cut out for them against the Giants in order to get another title.
