When: Feb. 3.

TV: WTTG-5, WBFF-45.

The Last Time: The Patriots beat the Giants, 38-35, at Giants Stadium in the final game of the regular season. Despite being locked into the No. 5 seed in the playoffs, the Giants played all their starters and had a chance to spoil New England's undefeated season until Giants QB Eli Manning threw an interception late in the fourth quarter. The Patriots scored a touchdown off that turnover for a 38-28 lead with 4 minutes 36 seconds to play to seal the win.

Patriots: What more is there to say? Their coach is a genius who was punished by the league for videotaping an opponent in the first week of the season. Their quarterback was the most valuable player in the league and managed to win despite dating a supermodel. The coach and quarterback have been to three Super Bowls together. They've won three Super Bowls together.

Giants: New York has won an NFL-record 10 straight road games, including the past three in the playoffs to reach their first Super Bowl since the 2000-01 season. Manning has not had a turnover this postseason after throwing 20 interceptions and losing seven fumbles during the regular season.
