    I think the Pats will win but not cover. I think they only beat the Giants by 3 points or something the last game of the season. I would like to see Eli and the Giants pull the upset but I see the Pats winning by 6-10 with the Giants being in it the whole game. I hope its as good as the rest of the playoffs have been this year.

    I would be surprised if the Pats don't cover. But I also thought the Giants were going to get beat by the cold.

    It's in a dome in AZ?

    I don't see how anyone can beat the Pats. I see NYG keeping pace through 3qtrs, but I suspect that NE score on all possessions.

    IF the giants keep up with the patriots on scoring and IF the giants defense puts constant pressure on the pats I think they could pull an upset. Remember the giants have won 10/11 games in a row on the road. Give plax a couple weeks to rest and they could be real good. The giants also have two sick rb's...
    I just really, really hate the patriots...

    Ooh! Apparently antimony and binary visions disagree on whether the Patriots will cover the spread. Fight! Fight! Fight!

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    The way the Giants have been lucky the past few games, I don't think the Pats will cover the spread. But then again, I thought that the Pack would beat the Giants.

    I think the first quarter will tell. If the Giants are aggressive (most likely), and the Pats are a little flat (which I doubt), the game will be close. If the Pats are on top of their game (most likely), the Giants are in for a long evening.

    I chose tie because they are my two favorite teams and could care who wins. Id love to see the pats make history, but will be pulling for the giants to get the upset as well.

    Do you really think the Giants were that lucky? Seems like they busted their asses and perhaps created their own luck?

    I've been doing NFL threads for four years now, just FYI. Either way, if the only thing you bring to the RM Table is your NFL threads, then you must be starving with an empty plate.
    In what way?

    EDIT: got it :D

    awesome, almost everyone thinks the giants will lose.

    Just like they did last week, and the week before, and the week before

    I thought that the fourth Qtr of the Packer/Gaints game was horrible. My thought was if either of these two teams play like this against the Pats then the Pats will destroy them.

    Those conditions were horrible. It is impossible for players to perform at a high level in cold like that.

    Agreed, but up to that point I thought it was a pretty decent game.

    I think the Giants have the best chance of winning. They have the best defense and were able to rattle Brady last time and I believe Manning has the presence now and confidence to do what he couldn't in their last game, although I think he did a great job last game. They have nothing to lose, everyone has bagged n them the whole year, all the "know it alls" in the NFL called them pretenders and the NY fans have talked so much smack about ELI...I think it's just fueling them to cause the biggest upset ever. Should be a great game regardless. On another note, the Jags could have easily won if their defense would have done ANYTHING. Those idiots cousins and the other guy with the dreads kept trying to tackle with their hands and throw people down instead of wrap and twist. Seriously, they ruined the whole game. I want to hunt them down and wait until they come out in their robes for the mail and then show them how to tackle correctly. Go Giants!

    Rumor has it that Tom, Bill and the Pats are fvcking with the media. It appears that Tom was at a dance night club that night without the boot. If he's well enough to go hang out at clubs late at night, then he didn't need to wear the boot for the walk from transport to gf's door where he KNEW the media was waiting.

    I love how the Pats do football and how they regularly fvck with people. Rock on.
