How to beat the New England Patriots
Key for the Giants is to force Tom Brady into short passes and create turnovers
- William Perlman/US PresswireThe New York Giants already beat the New England Patriots once this season. Can they do it again?
Getting into a shootout is certainly a low-proposition path since the Patriots scored 30 or more points in 13 of their 18 games this year and had 27 in another contest.
Should a team try to outgain New England yardage-wise? Seven teams did that against the Patriots this year, and only one ended up winning.
Even winning the turnover battle doesn't do a lot of good, as the Patriots were 3-2 in games in which they were on the losing end of that statistical skirmish.
So what is the key to beating the Patriots?
