There's not much to add about the overhyped game of the year. I would point out the detailed statistical analysis by Aaron Schatz at Football Outsiders. If you look at the stats over the course of the entire season, the Patriots are the superior team. But if you only look at the past five weeks, then the Giants are the better team. Which would confirm the conventional wisdom I've heard from several people over the past week: the Giants are peaking at the right time.
