They are spoiled? I’ve only heard good things about what they do in the community, particularly Peyton.
I can understand not being able to stomach those who are genuine thugs, but what is with the hatred for the Mannings?
Wash it down with a few cold ones.
I really do not know who I want to win.
This just ain’t right.
I looked at the TV listings just now . . . the dang Pregame show is longer then the game itself!
The over 55 is the giveaway to Pats predicted win.
Giants gave up over 30 3X this year - weeks 12, 13, 14. GB, NewOrleans, Dallas.
Pats gave up >30 once - suprise game at Buffalo, week 3.
If the market expects scores one team >30, other >25 - this is a Pats victory. it is the under 55 - where the Giants have a chance.
Giants won’t score over 30 - unless it is the last play of the game to win like 31-28 or something like that. Mush more probably Giants score <25 (without a few lucky breaks - like terrible missed tackles, or blown voerage, etc.)
Giants have been scoring on mistakes.

Hate both teams, hoping from massive power outage.8>)
Damn right! That's America, baby. Now that Al is gone, the Silver and Black will be back. Just win, baby...!
Not exactly. The players on the teams are from all over the USA. In fact, the teams that represent red areas of the country (Dallas, Tennessee, etc.) have players that hail from blue areas. So if you are rooting for the Dallas Cowboys and their QB comes from a blue state, are you then rooting for the Democrats?
I never put much stock in the "home team". I realize that the local team does not really reflect upon my hometown - unless of course, that team was entirely comprised of players and coaches from my hometown.
Holy smokes, that sounds amazing!!!! Not sure I can get there by kick-off. Drats!
And the winning team will need to "put some points on the board." Also, "turnovers will kill ya." If the Giants are to contain Tom Brady, they are going to have to "put some pressure on him" and "force him out of the pocket."
See, I am already as qualified to preview a game as John Madden, Terry Bradshaw and all those other cliche-spouting ex-jocks that are jamming the sportscasters booth! Now hand me a drumstick from that turducken.
Willbe interesting - however -
Everyone seems to think Pats defense is suspect - and the Giants are great.
pats gave up one >30 point game last year - week 3 surprise away at Buffalo.
Giants gave up 3 - 49, 38,34 - weeks 12, 13, 14 - GB, Neworleans, Dallas. 3 games down the stretch fighting for playoff spot.
I don’tsee the Pats letting themsleve be held to 20.
There are two possible “games” - under 25 each team - toss up. Over 30 for one team - Pats. And those over 30’s have not been rare for Giants - especially against high powered offenses.
If Pats are on - this can be over quick. If not - we get a game.
Close last possession wins game. Take the Giants and the 3 points. Giants win outright.
Indianapolis has a Republican mayor.
Only because (before he got senile) Dick Lugar was smart enough to enlarge the voter bloc for mayor from the city limits to the county limits.
That’s why Indy doesn’t look like Det, Cleve, etc.
Stubhub down to 600 tix.
Kind of fun to watch the total offered vs. time left.
The Patriots were going from a 3-4 to put a 4-3 front, new they are putting a new innovation together a hybrid where they are putting a combination of 1 gap and 2 gap on the same play, there were a lot in injuries in the back 7 earlier, the team just started to click in the last few weeks.
The Giants are being made out to be the 85 Bears, but they gave up far more points than the Pats.
Brady will be on.
People wonder why BB has been in a good mood this week.....2 weeks of great preparation by his team.
