The last time the New England Patriots and New York Giants met in the Super Bowl, the Patriots were regarded as easy favorites. Many experts assumed the 18-0 Patriots would easily dismantle a sixth-seeded Giants team that sneaked into the playoffs.

The Giants pulled off arguably the upset of the century in a 17-14 win, pressuring Tom Brady and ultimately winning on Eli Manning’s "Flee to Tyree" and game-winner to Plaxico Burress.

For the rematch, the Giants return 15 active players, and the Patriots just seven. These are two extremely evenly-matched teams, as evidenced by the Week 9 game that went down to the final minute.

Any of the 53 players on either team could come home with the game’s MVP honors, but these are the 25 players most likely to play a crucial role in their team’s win.
