Super Bowl XLVI Matchup Set: New England Patriots vs. New York Giants

After yesterday's two thrilling finishes in conference championship games, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants will meet in Super Bowl XLVI, set to kick off in a little under two weeks.

New England made it to Indianapolis luckily, needing a dropped Lee Evans pass and a missed Billy Cundiff kick to avoid overtime - or worse - at home against the Baltimore Ravens, escaping with a 23-20 win. The Giants, too, were lucky, capitalizing on a fumbled punt in overtime to kick a game-winner and advance to the Super Bowl with a 20-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

These two teams famously met in Super Bowl XLII four years ago, when the upstart Giants ended the Patriots' dream for an undefeated season with a 17-14 win, with Eli Manning hitting Plaxico Burress for the go-ahead score late. They also squared off in the regular season this year, with Manning again playing late-game hero in hitting Jake Ballard for the go-ahead score with less than two minutes remaining in a 24-20 road win.

Now, the age-old question: do Buffalo Bills fans root actively for the divisional foe, against them, or simply to be entertained for four quarters on Super Bowl Sunday? Let us know in the comments section!
