My hatred towards the Patriots has been long standing and you would think they were apart of the NFC East, but they are not. I just don't know what it is about them, the coach, their QB, their continuous winning*, the fans I know, whatever it is, I root against them all of the time.
So it always makes things more interesting when my Giants play them as I have many friends and family that are die-hard Patriots fans. Luckily I have had the upper edge in the last few face to face games as in the last four match-ups, not counting the preseason, the Giants are 3-1 against them including two Super Bowl wins.
The one loss, the Patriots final game in their 16-0 season. A game I will say the Giants had until late third/fourth quarter. But, that loss was okay, it built momentum to a Super Bowl 42 win so I will take it.
As you will see, I get a tiny bit excited about a Super Bowl win against them (sadly this is only a few items).
My favorite set of them all, I have two copies and would def take more. Real Super Bowl ticket stub!!

However, since their last match-up, the Patriots have continued on winning was as the Giants have fallen from grace til this season as they are in first place in the ugly NFC East. This season the Giants are winning against sub-par teams, besides the big Buffalo Bills road win. How will they fare against an undefeated powerhouse like the Patriots? I am not sure.
I do know the key to beating the Patriots is not stopping these two, but slowing them down. If you can do that, you give yourself a chance.
So I will say 31-20 Patriots as painful as it is to admit, but not being able to slow down Gronk will be the main reason. But, I won't fully count out the Giants as a possible threat to them and their undefeated season. And obviously I will be cheering hard!
Let's hear your predictions for the game!
