Super Bowl XLVI - Official Game Thread (1st Half)

The New York Giants came away victorious when these two teams met four years ago in the Super Bowl, thanks to a miraculous catch by David Tyree. Not many of the Patriots players remain from that team, but for those that do, as well as head coach Bill Belichick, you know it still stings. New England will be looking for revenge as Tom Brady tries to capture his fourth Super Bowl ring. Will the Giants be able to prevent him from holding up the Lombardi trophy once again?
