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?
