Why didn't the Giants want that last touchdown?

That guy tried not to go into the end zone....why?

Were they trying to run down the clock or something?

    He was running the clock down. The Patriots let him score, that's why the defense put no effort into that play. He recognized that and tried to stop to force the Patriots to get him rather than walk into the endzone.

  • Too much time on the clock, so Brady had a chance to come back in the last few seconds. A field goal would have allowed them to drain more time off the clock when Brady got the ball back; wait until the play clock was nearly zero before kicking the field goal. But Brady wasn't that good, so it ended up not mattering.

  • They wanted to run the clock down to not give Tom Brady as much time on the clock as they did and would have been content with the fieldgoal attempt to win the game leaving Tom Brady little to no time to mount a comeback attempt. In the end though it all worked out for the Giants.

    Lol i'm sorry Sarra i understand your a Pats fan and that i'm actual a form of human beings that concept the Pats were going to win by technique of about 10. yet Tom Brady underpressure is like Rex Grossman throwing inclusive of his off hand lol. You gotta admit that once Eli scrambled away and managed to get it off some how and Tyree catching that staggering bypass became fantastic. So certain...Tears =)

    Run the clock down so Brady didn't get the ball back with much time

    Here's what would have been GREAT, HISTORIC play; keep your balance, don't step over the line, watch for defenders and watch the clock. Wait for a second left and THEN roll into the end zone!!!!

    Well, they did. They just thought they wouldn't get it. They were going to try to set up a field goal but the receiver blew it. . .and scored a touchdown!

    I don't know why the Giants didn't just run around the field and eat up time on the two point conversion.
