INDIANAPOLIS - The hype is over. The big game is here.

After two weeks of anticipation, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots are squaring off in the Super Bowl for NFL supremacy.

A bit of braggadocio was interjected into the pregame preparations when Giants defensive end Chris Canty predicted a win on his Twitter account. "Giants 28, New England 17" appeared on "ChrisCanty99" about five hours before game time.

Giants fans from across Long Island who have gathered to watch the game sure hope he's right.

AP wire services were used in this report.
