Big men in big helmets play a big game.
Super Bowl XLVI is a repeat of the 2008 Bowl, as the New England Patriots reacquaint themselves with the New York Giants. The boys from the Big Apple upset the odds that year, but surely lightning doesn’t strike twice. Here are five things to watch out for:
1) It might be low-scoring:
This year’s match will once more be played indoors, in the newish Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Statistically, indoor Superbowls tend to have fewer points than the outdoor version, 46.92 compared to 52.1 (there have been 20 outdoor Superbowls whilst 2012 will be the 15th indoors.)
2) Tom Brady proving he is the new Joe Montana
Neither are possessed of a strong throwing arm (a la Peyton Manning) but rather pursue shorter throwing avenues with a superb completion percentage. Both have won the MVP award twice. And if the Patriots win on Sunday, both will have won four Superbowls.
3) The drama may come late:
Not only was the 2008 contest decided in the dying embers, but New York also grabbed a cheeky victory in the regular season fixture between these two in the final twenty seconds through Jake Ballard.
4) Eli Manning will be a marked man:
Because the Patriots wont make the same mistake they made in Week 9, will they…
5) Back the New England Patriots:
A superior team fired up by a revenge mission. Take the Patriots at 21/20 with Ladbrokes.
