The Painful Act of Super Bowl Scouting

In anticipation of Sundays Super Bowl, NFL Network the last couple of nights has rebroadcast Patriots-Giants games of the past.

Tuesday night the network rebroadcast Super Bowl XLII, in which the Patriots took a 14-10 lead over the Giants with a Tom Brady-to-Randy Moss touchdown pass, only to have the Giants score with 35 second left to spoil the Patriots' shot at an undefeated season and win 17-14.

Wednesday night the network rebroadcast the regular-season matchup between the two teams, in which the Patriots took a 20-17 lead with a Tom Brady-to-Rob Gronkowski touchdown pass, only to have the Giants score with 15 seconds left to win 24-20.

Needless to say, both nights I switched the channel after the Pats' go-ahead score.

Thursday night NFL Network will rebroadcast the Pats' 38-35 win in the final weekend of the 2007 that clinched their 16-0  regular season. At least I won't have to worry about changing the channel tomorrow night.
