It’s Patriots vs. Giants Super Bowl Repeat

Lawrence Tynes did it again and he’s going back to the Super Bowl.

Brian Waters is going too, for the first time in his career.

It’s the New England Patriots and the New York Giants headed for Super Bowl 46 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis in two weeks. It’s a repeat of Super Bowl 42, four years ago in Arizona when the Giants stopped the Patriots unbeaten season with an upset victory in the Super Bowl.

Tynes’ 31-yard field in overtime gave the Giants their 20-17 victory. It’s a repeat of what Tynes did four years ago in Green Bay when his FG ended that NFC Championship Game and sent them to the title game against the Patriots.

After a dozen years in the league, Waters gets his first trip to the Super Bowl in his first season with the Patriots. Released by the Chiefs in late July, Waters sat out the pre-season and then signed with New England for the opening week of the season.

It all paid off for him and the rest of the Patriots with a 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

“I’m overjoyed,” Waters said after the game. “This is an unbelievable deal.  This is probably the most excited I have been in a long time, since the birth of my children probably.  God knows this has been unbelievable and I have been truly blessed.  I appreciate my teammates and these guys welcomed me here and just gave me an opportunity to do something special.”

    I’m happy for Waters but I’m pretty sure the good times will end for Brian in a couple weeks.
