Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke with Giants co-owner Steve Tisch after the Patriots Super Bowl win, according to NJ.com and NFL, and told him that the New York Giants would have beaten his team for a third time in the Super Bowl.
“But would I have liked to have gone deeper in the playoffs? Of course. Would I have liked to have ended up in Houston, absolutely. Especially because Bob Kraft, after the Super Bowl, told me, ‘You would’ve beat us.’ That made me feel good. That was a nice compliment.” – Tisch
Reporter Conor Orr goes on and says the Giants had a better defense than the Atlanta Falcons but unsure if new head coach Ben McAdoo would of been able to score.
