In building their 9-0 lead over the New England Patriots in the first quarter, the New York Giants benefited from two key plays. The first came from their defense and the second was a mistake from the Patriots.
The Giants’ defense drew first blood, but it was their offense that deepened the wound late in the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVI.
As the Giants and Patriots go through their on-field warm-ups for Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium, here are my pregame observations.
