Eli is a proven clutch performer; he plays with heart and conviction.
Gmen are one of the elite defenses, and they play with pride.
Pats defense is average. They did ok on Ray Rice, but were lucky to escape at home vs Ravens and their avg QB.
Manning is NOT average. G Men defense is right up there with Balty's, and Brady is in for a tough afternoon.
I think Manning will have some vertical pass openings, big plays, and an effective running game.
Brady has the props and the pub, but Manning has the on par success.
The GMen blue looks to me like the mesmerizing winning color late in this one.
