INDIANAPOLIS — One of the biggest reasons the Giants upset the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII was the play of their defensive line.
Well, Big Blue is off to a good start in Super Bowl XLVI.
Giants DE Justin Tuck beat the interior of the Patriots’ offensive line on a nice stunt on their first offensive play of the game, causing QB Tom Brady to release a deep throw to no one down the middle of the field.
Brady was standing 2 yards into his own end zone when he threw the pass, and the referees flagged him for intentional grounding.
Safety. 2-0, Giants.
It was the seventh safety in Super Bowl history, but the first one since Super Bowl XLIII.
