The Patriots are virtually a lock for the playoffs. It's what happens when they actually get there that remains in question. Although Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's streak of 30 straight regular-season home wins remains in tact, it hasn't done them much good in the postseason as of late.

Wes Welker and Tom Brady are on pace for 130 hookups this year, but that doesn't scare the Giants' secondary.

Victor Cruz among receivers who say Manning is an elite quarterback
Nearly four years ago, Eli Manning upstaged Tom Brady to give the New York Giants a stunning Super Bowl win over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots.
That's probably one reason why Manning claims he's in the same class as Brady, and his play this season is backing up that uncharacteristic statement.
