With three Super Bowl titles and two Super Bowl MVP's, Tom Brady has already sealed his legacy as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. However with a victory on Sunday, Brady could separate himself from the rest of the pack.
By just getting to the Super Bowl, Brady tied John Elway as the only quarterback to start five Super Bowl games. And by winning in Indianapolis, Brady would only be the third quarterback to win four Super Bowl titles.
Meanwhile, if Brady loses to the Giants once again, his legacy will be one of what could have been. It would be the second title that the Giants stole from Brady and be one team that proved they could make Brady just an average quarterback.
In contrast to Brady, Eli Manning's legacy is far from cemented. But by winning another Super Bowl title over Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, Manning would guarantee himself a spot as one of the premier postseason performers the NFL has ever seen.
Many questioned Manning's status among NFL quarterbacks before this season began and throughout his career. But Manning silenced his critics this season by putting up his best season as a pro and possibly ending it with a second Super Bowl title and MVP.
Bill Belichick's legacy almost goes hand-in-hand with Tom Brady.
The pair of Hall of Famers have had all of their success with each other since the 2001 season, although Belichick first made his name as a defensive coordinator under Bill Parcells in New York.
By winning his fourth Super Bowl title as a head coach, Belichick would join only Chuck Knoll as the only coaches to win four Super Bowls in NFL history.
Although the "Hoodie" mostly keeps to himself, it's almost assured that Belichick would relish the opportunity to be considered the greatest coach of all time.
Tom Coughlin was in jeopardy of losing his job this season.
Now? Now, Coughlin has led his Giants to their second Super Bowl appearance under his direction and could seal his fate as a Hall of Fame coach with a victory.
After a rocky middle part of the season, it appeared as though Coughlin would not last the long offseason as head coach of the team. However, Coughlin was able to rally the troops and now has them playing their best football season at exactly the right time.
With a victory on Sunday, Coughlin would be able to remain the coach of the Giants as long he so pleased.
A far cry from where Coughlin was just a couple of months ago.
