Only once every four years do we get to witness a matchup of two of the league's oldest and most storied franchises. But these teams are forever linked by more than just their age.
In 2004, both of these franchises drafted quarterbacks who they hoped would lead them to the promised land. The results have been spectacular. In eight short years, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have combined for five Super Bowl appearances and have come away with four rings.
They'll be the most talked about aspect of this matchup, but it goes much, much deeper than that.
