Who says that defenses don't win championships? The N.Y. Giants defense played impressively and ended up beating the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
The Giants made a map on how to do it. First, stop the run. The
Giants held the Patriots to 45 total yards rushing. The next step is to put pressure on Tom Brady. You would have had to been on Mars not to know what he accomplished this year.
One of the biggest bragging rights for the Patriots was that he was untouchable. Well, the Giants put pressure on him
all game and it worked. Brady had no time to throw the deep patterns and had to keep everything short. It is hard to hit Randy Moss 40 yards down the field when you are on your butt.
The Giants had 5 sacks, I lost count of knockdowns and hurries. The pressure was relentless, and when Alford blew up
the middle on the last series for the final sack, put a fork in them , they were done.
My hat goes off to the Giants for one game, I've never really
liked them, they showed up and played. The Giants coaching staff came up with a great defensive scheme, and what a plan it was.
