While a lot of you called it for the Patriots in the comments, the Giants took this year's Super Bowl in a game that started slow but turned into a nailbiter. Reader (and Elk Grove Patch blogger) Mark Paxson wins a Patch Snuggie with the closest guess to the game's score. Mark guessed 27-20, while the final score was 21-17 for the Giants.
