New England Patriots
New York Giants
David Tyree’s miraculous catch with 1:05 left in Super Bowl XLII will always be the quintessential moment of that thrilling championship game.
But if there was one play that was acts as a microcosm of how that game played out in 2008, it was Jay Alford’s crucial sack of Tom Brady with 25 seconds left.
In a game that included five New York Giants sacks against the heavily-favored New England Patriots, Alford, an unknown rookie from Northwestern, broke through the New England line and took down the superstar, Brady, to help clinch the New York win.
Alford no longer plays for New York, but pass rushers Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka still do. These three, along with the young sack master Jason Pierre-Paul, propelled the Giants to another Super Bowl.
And just like four years ago, New York’s defensive line will be the most important unit during the Super Bowl on Sunday.

TweetThe David Tyree Super Bowl XLII (42) catch against the New England Patriots is arguably the best play in SB history.
A look back at this incredible play which ultimately provided the New York Giants an opportunity to win the game. People can argue if this is the best catch during a Super Bowl but it would be difficult to find an overall better play from start to finish.
Don't worry, it's not THAT Tom Brady. Quite the contrary, the Tom Brady that is predicting a Giants win on Sunday is simply a Big Blue fan from Staten Island. The coincidentally named prognosticator called into 1010 WINS Wednesday to make sure his thoughts on the game were heard. "I'm Tom Brady, I'm from Staten Island, and I predict Giants will prevail,"...
No one can argue with the high level of performance by Tom Brady given his body of work over the course of his career. The biggest statistic of all is 3 rings in 4 appearances. Based on his winning record and passing statistics in the regular season, he should be considered one of the top 3 quarterbacks in the NFL.
Through 2004 in the postseason Brady was impressive both in...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul isn’t too worried about being able to rattle Patriots quarterback Tom Brady this coming Sunday.
“Anybody can be rattled,” said Pierre-Paul. “Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but at the end of the day he’s just a quarterback. It’s not like he’s God.”
Pierre-Paul is right, the past couple of meetings between the Giants...

The pair on the pregame would apparently be an audition of sorts for the two active players according to USA Today, but I'm not sure why Rodgers...
INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Patriots lost 24-20 to the Giants in November, their critics pounced: The dynasty is dead. Tom Brady can’t do it anymore. This is the year they stumble.
Yeah, so much for that.
