Why Giants will win: They own blueprint for beating PatriotsFew people saw this coming when the Giants were 7-7. But during their current five-game winning streak, the Giants have played the best football in the NFL, knocking off the Jets, Cowboys, Falcons, Packers, and 49ers to reach Indianapolis.
Eli Manning won’t let the Giants lose. He has eight touchdown passes and one interception during the playoffs. Nobody overshadows Manning anymore. Not his older brother, Peyton. Not Tom Brady. Nobody.
Manning usually plays better in big games than he does during the regular season. There is no reason to think that will change. The Patriots’ defense is in trouble. They don’t have a pass rush like the 49ers. The Patriots don’t have a secondary like the Packers. Manning prevailed against those teams, and he’ll prevail against the Patriots.
"We have so much confidence in Eli that we know if we keep him upright, if we keep his feet clean, keep him standing there, he’s going to be able to do some amazing things,’’ said Giants guard David Diehl.
Playing indoors, in perfect conditions at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Giants are a serious threat to put up 30 points or more. The Giants have too many weapons for the Patriots to control. Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks comprise the best wide receiver tandem in football. Third receiver Mario Manningham is no slouch either.
