Thanks to nflfans, missed one day of LJ and had skip=160 to deal with. So many posts about the Patriots "choking" but I don't think they did. It wasn't like they had blown out a bunch of challenging opponents recently and were this unstoppable juggernaut going into the game. They just always found a way to win, which in some ways makes 16-0 even more impressive.
The game itself was close, and there weren't any shocking breakdowns or anything. Giants had a great pass rush that either hurried or got to Brady a lot. Their offensive line gave Eli time to make plays. Receivers came up with clutch catches. Everyone on the team contributed, which is why Eli got the MVP award--when you can't figure out who to pick because so many people did key things, by default it goes to the QB. :P
