INDIANAPOLIS — Giants DE Chris Canty channeled his inner Joe Namith Sunday morning and predicted a Super Bowl victory for his team. However, he wasn't confident enough to keep his guess on the record. 

On his Twitter account @ChrisCanty99, the lineman wrote, "Giants 28, New England 17" about five hours before game time.

Later in the day, the tweet was deleted from Canty's account.
