The 2011 NFL season comes to an end on Sunday evening with Super Bowl XLVI. The New England Patriots and the New York Giants will have a rematch of the 2007 season's Super Bowl XLII, which saw the Giants defeat the Patriots, 17-14, and put an end to the Patriots' unbeaten ways.
At stake for the Patriots is a fourth Super Bowl title in seven games. While they lost during the 2007 season as well as in 1985 and 1996, the Patriots took home the Lombardi Trophy during the 2001, 2003 and 2004 seasons. Tom Brady is playing in his fifth Super Bowl, matching John Elway's number appearances.
The Giants are appearing in its fifth Super Bowl all-time and have won three of four so far. In addition to the 2007 season title, the Giants won it all during the 1986 season (defeating John Elway and the Denver Broncos) and the 1990 season (Scott Norwood's wide right field goal attempt).
We could be in for a classic Super Bowl match with these two teams.
