Tale of the Super Bowl Tape: New York Giants vs. New England Patriots

by at . Comments

It's all come down to this: New York Giants vs. New England Patriots, The Rematch!

These two rivals will go at it again in Super Bowl XLVI, four years after an epic 17-14 upset that cost New England the first 19-0 in league history. So, which team will come out on top this time? THG analyzes the big game from every angle below - except the commercials - and makes a bold prediction...

Giants/Pats

RANDOM TOWN THEY PLAY IN AND NO ONE WOULD KNOW EXISTED OTHERWISE
Giants: East Rutherford, NJ
Patriots: Foxboro, MA
Edge: Patriots

NUMBER OF SUPERMODELS ASKING FRIENDS TO PRAY FOR THEIR STARTING QUARTERBACK OF A HUSBAND
Giants: Zero
Patriots: One
Edge: Giants

POINTS SCORED IN PREVIOUS SUPER BOWL MEETING
Giants: 17
Patriots: 14
Edge: Giants

HAVE NEVER ONCE EMPLOYED ...
Giants: Cheerleaders
Patriots: A star wideout who shot himself at a nightclub
Edge: Patriots

BASEBALL TEAM WITH WHICH THEY SHARE A HOME STATE
Giants: Yankees
Patriots: Red Sox
Edge: Giants

SUPER BOWLS WON BY BILL BELICHICK

Patriots: 3 (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX as Head Coach)
Edge: Patriots

Giants: "New York, New York" (Frank Sinatra); "New York State of Mind" (Billy Joel); "Empire State of Mind" (Jay-Z Ft. Alicia Keys)
Patriots: "Dirty Water" (the Standells)
Edge: Giants x 10,000

MOST LIKELY NEW YORK POST BACKPAGE HEADLINE IF TEAM WINS
Giants: One Giant Step for Manning Kind
Patriots: EEEK-Li!

Edge: Giants

VERDICT: Sorry, Patriots. But no revenge will be had this year, not when Victor Cruz is lining up against a wide receiver playing in your defensive backfield and not when Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra and Jay-Z are all so clearly in New York's corner. The G-Men take this one 5-3-2.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN?
