INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Giants defensive end Justin Tuck put the pressure on Tom Brady early and late, helping lead New York to its second Super Bowl win over New England, 21-17 on Sunday.

Tuck forced a safety on the Patriots’ first offensive play and cranked up the pressure in the fourth quarter after New York’s vaunted pass rush had been stymied.

Giants players said New England tried to give Brady extra time by going to maximum protection, but when New York adjusted its coverage, Tuck and the Giants were back to their old selves.

After Eli Manning led the Giants on a drive to take the lead with 57 seconds left, Tuck came through again, sacking Brady on third down with 48 seconds to go to put the Pats in a big hole.
