All the talk on the street has been about the Giants’ pass rush getting to Brady. They are right; kind of. The real key to this game will be forcing Brady into 7-step drops and giving the pass rush the time they need to get to him. The Giants safeties, Rolle, Grant and Phillips, will have to step up in the box and make tackles early to force Brady to take some shots deep. If the Pats are able to dink and dunk all day the Giants pass rush will be a non-factor. The Patriots had the 20th ranked rush attack this year, and Brady effectively replaced their run game by dominating on passes under 10 yards.
