Patriots QB Tom Brady admitted this week that he still is bothered by memories of New England’s loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII four years ago.
“As time goes on, I still can’t watch highlights from that game, that’s just the way it is,” Brady said Monday on WEEI-AM in Boston. “You get to the end, and we had a great opportunity there and really squandered it because we didn’t play our very best.”
The Giants also beat Brady in Week 9 of the 2011 regular season, 24-20.
“We’ll certainly look at that game, several times,” Brady said. “You see matchups. You see how your guys match up against their guys — route-running and blocking and so forth. It will have absolutely zero impact on the game, but at the same time, hopefully we can learn some lessons from that game.”
