Super Bowl XLVI: The Brady-Manning MatchupPlay
The waiting is almost over. In just a few days the New England Patriots and the New York Giants take to the field in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI.
NFL analyst Mike Reiss joined Morning Edition Friday to preview the game. Reiss covers the Patriots for ESPN Boston.
"When you look at this match-up between the two quarterback,s Tom Brady's reputation is that he's always been the clutch guy, the quarterback to bring his team back in the fourth quarter, in the final minutes," Reiss said. "But if you look at what Eli Manning has done this season, in 2011, really that's been his M.O. and he's been terrific, so it's sort of two quarterbacks that sort of have the same thing going for them, clashing."
