Missed chances cost Patriots in Super Bowl
Patriots' late bid for Super Bowl title fails with incompletions as Giants win 21-17
By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ' Tom Brady's two long incompletions in the final minutes, and several missed chances throughout the game, cost the New England Patriots a chance at another Super Bowl victory.

The Patriots suffered their second Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants in four years, 21-17 on Sunday.

With just over four minutes left, Brady threw to a wide-open Wes Welker. But Brady's most reliable receiver ' and the NFL leader with 122 catches' couldn't hang on.

Minutes later, the Giants marched for the winning touchdown with 57 seconds remaining.

Brady had one last chance, throwing a pass half the length of the field into the end zone. Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez went up in a mass of defenders, but the ball fell to the ground as time ran out.
