There is one thing that I am absolutely certain is going to happen in the Superbowl today: The New York Giants will have the ball first.  Throughout the season I was constantly noticing that the Patriots were regularly kicking off to open games.  And then I recently stumbled upon this stat: The last 29 times New England has won the coin flip, they have elected to differ.  And on top of that, the past 31 times the Giants have won the toss they have elected to receive.  So mark it down, New York will be on offense for the opening possession.  After that, who knows.  But I am of the opinion that New England should win fairly easily.
