Patriots to Face Giants in Super Bowl XLVI

New, comments

Well, in two weeks, the New England Patriots will be involved in either one of the biggest revenge stories in NFL history, or one of the biggest nightmares.

With the New York Giants defeating the San Francisco 49ers in overtime in the NFC Championship, it established Super Bowl XLVI as a rematch of the Super Bowl four years ago, when the 18-0 New England Patriots were upset by the underdog New York Giants.

The Patriots and the Giants will face off at 6:25 PM on February 5th, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Patriots have been on a long road to recovery ever since that loss four years ago. On that day, Patriots fans learned the hard way that the Lombardi trophy is a lot more important than an unblemished regular season record.

The 2011 Patriots are far from perfect. They lost three games, the most recent coming at the hands of these New York Giants in week 9But now (well in two weeks), they will get the chance to pull off the ultimate revenge story as they will take on the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.

In the coming days, we'll continue to break down the Patriots' win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship, as well as the upcoming Super Bowl match-up with the New York Giants. For now, feel free to use this post to continue to discuss the Patriots' win as well as your initial thoughts on the Giants game.
