Super Bowl 2012, Giants Vs. Patriots: New York Slows New England's Roll

After two consecutive touchdown drives from the New England Patriots spearheaded by Tom Brady's throwing, the New York Giants needed a stop. With a bit of pass rush, they got it.

The Patriots got the ball in decent field position, but couldn't make anything happen on a BenJarvus Green-Ellis run up the middle on the first play of the drive. And then the Giants' pass rush took over, with Chris Canty flushing Brady and forcing him to throw an incomplete pass on second down and Justin Tuck pressuring Brady into an incompletion and knocking him down on the next play to force a punt.

If the pendulum is swinging back toward the Giants defense, Big Blue may still have a chance.
