Brad Adgate, senior vice president of research at New York-based Horizon Media Inc, predicts a rematch of the 2007 Super Bowl has enough subplots and big name players to draw more viewers that last year's Super Bowl between Green Bay and Pittsburgh.
"These two teams accounted for one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history," Adgate told Bloomberg's Curtis Eichelberger. "The Patriots and Giants are the most likely to draw in the casual fans."
You may remember that the Patriots were 18-0 heading into the 2007 Super Bowl looking to obtain a perfect season. However, the Giants stunned New England when Eli Manning hit Plaxico Burress with a touchdown pass with just seconds left on the clock to win the big game.
The teams met earlier this season with the Giants coming out on top, 24-20 ending the Patriots' 20-game regular-season home winning streak.
The second most enticing scenario might be a game putting a showdown of brothers Jim and John Harbaugh. Jim Harbaugh coaches the San Francisco 49ers while John is at the helm of the Baltimore Ravens. The teams met earlier in the season and the Ravens came out on top.
