This game has all the makings of a thriller that will hopefully give us four quarters of action as exciting as the final one was the last time these two teams met with a championship on the line.
Each squad will likely attempt to establish a ground game, both in an attempt to move the chains and keep the other team's potent offense off the field, but as they struggle to do so, the Giants and Patriots will start to take to the air as a very closely contested first half draws to a close.
The second half (assuming that Madonna's halftime show doesn't cause us all to die from aurally induced spontaneous cerebral liquefaction) will feature a display of aerial fireworks, with two great quarterbacks moving their teams up and down the field.
However, in the end, the New York Giants superior pass rush and slightly better secondary will force an errant throw from Tom Brady that will turn the tide, and when the final gun sounds, the Giants will emerge as Super Bowl XLVI champions and become the fifth team to win the National Football League's biggest game four times.
Not only will the Giants win their fourth Super Bowl, but New York quarterback Eli Manning will be the game's MVP for a second time, fueling a debate over whether older brother Peyton is still the Man-ning, or if that torch has now been passed.
FINAL SCORE: New York Giants 31, New England Patriots 27
MVP: Eli Manning: 30-of-49, 356 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception
