So did we. So Scouts Inc. watched the film and diagramed just how these and a few other signature plays we're bound to see in Super Bowl XLII work.

Giants: Dime Blitz
New England Offense: Bunch Pass
This spread formation puts New York SS James Butler in a tough situation. He must make a quick decision and depending upon what Butler does, QB Tom Brady will find the open receiver. This is the play that WR Jabar Gaffney scored on in the AFC Championship game.
Patriots: Bunch Pass
New England Defense: Zone Man Blitz
This defensive scheme allows the Patriots to play combo coverages in the secondary, while still putting pressure on QB Eli Manning and giving him some confusing looks.
