The New England Patriots are putting their perfect record on the line again Sunday when they had to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Giants—the one team which they just can’t seem to get the best of.
How bad is it? Well, everyone remembers Super Bowl XLII when the Giants spoiled the Pats perfect season and Super Bowl XLVI when they pulled off the crazy upset again, but here’s a fun fact for you—the Patriots haven’t beaten the Giants since the 2007 regular season. They’ve beaten every team in the league at least once over that time. Except the Giants.
Now, does that mean the Giants are going to pull off some crazy victory and soil the Pats flawless record? Probably not. If it was the Super Bowl, maybe.
The Patriots are just too good right now. With a great offensive line, consistently reliably run game (when they feed it), and the best tight end in the game, it’s hard to bet against them. On top of that, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Gronk, and the rest of what could easily be considered the top receiving corps in all of football will be facing off against the 31st ranked pass defense. Drew Brees had over 500 yards and seven touchdowns against these guys just two weeks ago.
However, let’s not forget that Eli Manning is playing really well right now, and he is 3-0 against the Patriots over the past seven years. His brother certainly can’t say that. Eli is easily the best quarterback in NFL history in terms of pulling completely crazy victories out of absolutely nothing. I mean, who really thought the 9-7 Wild Card team would get in the way of the Patriots run at history?
That being said, I would like to reiterate one last time just how good the Patriots are in every aspect of the game.
Patriots vs. Giants Prediction: Patriots 35, Giants 27.
