Tom Brady and Eli Manning
It's finally here. The biggest game of the year, and the most-watched television program annually. The hoopla has already started with Media Day on Tuesday and radio row set up right outside of Lucas Oil Stadium. Its the '08 rematch. Patriots vs Giants. Brady vs Eli. Two teams are meeting once again in the super bowl, but in reality, this match-up is all about the quarterbacks. Although these two guys could not have taken more different paths to greatness, it is now known that they are both among the all-time greats in the game.

PredictionSuperbowl XLVI is one that will be remembered for a long time. The New England Patriots are the team of the century, with 5 Superbowl Appearances in 11 years. The New York Giants have given hope to the passionate fans of New York. Their Defensive Ends are going to be coming hard off the edge and hard up the middle. Their running backs are going to be going up the gut and around the outside. However, there is something special about this New England team. They put an end to Tebow Time, defeated Wacko Flacco, and this Sunday they will put an end to the book of Eli. Since Super Bowls never really go as planned, I am predicting this one to be a low scoring affair. Patriots Win, 17-13.
Summary: Brady + Gronk + Welker > Eli + Nicks + Cruz.
