Super Bowl 2012, Giants Vs. Patriots: New England Unable To Get In Gear

Early in Super Bowl XLVI, the New England Patriots just can't get untracked. After a first drive that gave the Giants a safety and a second drive that produced just a field goal, the Pats went three and out on their third drive of the evening.

Brady's first pass of the drive was batted down by Jason Pierre-Paul, just like his last pass of the second drive was, and Danny Woodhead only managed a few yards on a second down carry.

Even the first appearance of Chad Ochocinco couldn't help the Patriots. The much-discussed, little-used receiver came onto the field on a third down, but Brady fired to Wes Welker for a reception that was just inches shy of a first down.
