Overview: Mayo is a key player for the Patriots. The fourth year middle linebacker from Tennessee has developed into a consistent and crucial leader on the Patriots defense. He was rewarded for his impressive play with a new 5 year $48.5 million contract last month. A captain on the Patriots defense, expect to see Mayo make many tackles in the game and he’ll be out to stop the Giants rushing attack of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs.
