NEP secondary, I would think. Plus they beat New England this year with last-minute funtime. But Giants' defense is not exactly in Feb '08 form either. So a shootout on the fast track, the culmination of all the rule changes and passing records falling.
If the Giants D is as "hard hitting" as the pundits like to say, there's a fair chance they could get to Brady and if he gets knocked out of the game, their chances increase dramatically.
I've heard this argument a jillion times and I just don't get it. Let's say you have an eight-team playoff, that leaves a whole ton of teams that would have been in bowl games out in the cold, right? Wrong, let them have the bowl games anyhow.
