And of course, the biggest storyline of them all: the rematch.
Who can forget the 2007 season, which, much like this season, saw a seemingly down-and-out NY Giants make the postseason and prepare to step into the University of Phoenix Stadium to take on the 18-0 New England Patriots.
In what turned out to be one of the most entertaining and well-played Super Bowls in recent memory, the Giants stunned the world and defeated the Patriots, leaving them 18-1.
It took a miracle catch by David Tyree on his helmet to keep a last-chance drive going for the Giants, but it happened. In the biggest game of Tom Brady's life, which is saying a lot being his fourth Super Bowl, he came up short.
Four years later we have the dream rematch, fueled by the fact that last time, the NY Giants robbed the Patriots of history on the NFL's biggest stage.
Given the Patriots' record-breaking offense and the intense hot streak the Giants are currently on, this version of the super-rivalry is sure to outdo the first.
Oh, and who doesn't love a good old-fashioned New York vs. Boston matchup?
