Patriots and Giants
With the Packers eliminated, I was hoping for a rematch of the Thanksgiving Day Harbaugh Bowl, but alas, it's going to be Patriots-Giants instead. Not the matchup I was hoping for, but it will have to do. That said, I do think the Giants are going to win in two weeks. They were able to top the league's best offense on week and the league's best defense the next, so they obviously have something right going on. After this season, Eli will be mentioned in the same breath with Brady, and perhaps even above him if the Giants win. Why shouldn't he? Eli has taken two above-average, not great, teams to the Super Bowl now and if he wins, he'll have as many as Roethlisberger and more than Rodgers, Brees, and his big brother Peyton. He may look like a dork when he's out there, but he gets the job done. Giants 27, Patriots 21.
