Heading into Super Bowl XLII, most people thought the New York Giants didn't stand a chance against the undefeated New England Patriots.
Most thought that the Patriots would finish their improbable dream season and that Mercury Morris would simply croak.
The Giants did the unthinkable by beating the Patriots 17-14 and ruining what many thought as a sure thing. The Patriots ended up 18-1 that season as Eli Manning led his team to victory that day in the desert of Arizona.
The stipulations aren't quite the same, but the stakes would be just as high if these two teams were to meet in Super Bowl XLVI. It would be dubbed as a "revenge" game for the Patriots, although they would play it off as if it wasn't so.
Truth be told, the Giants are better than they were when they beat Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. After all, they already beat the Patriots 24-20 in Week 9.
It's no secret that Tom Brady and his coach, Bill "Hoodie" Belichick hate losing, so fans should throw the notion that these two men wouldn't be thinking about revenge out the window.
This would be a great matchup for Super Bowl XVLI, as it would contain the two best remaining quarterbacks in the playoffs in what has been coined the "Year of the Quarterback."
