New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Patriots Continue Quest For Perfection Against Giants


The Patriots can cap off a perfect regular season with a win over the New York Giants Saturday night at Giants Stadium.  The Patriots pushed their record to 15-and-0 with last week’s 28-7 trouncing of the Miami Dolphins.  The Pats are looking to become the first team since the 1972 Dolphins to finish the regular season undefeated.  The Dolphins went 14-and-0 in ’72 when the league had only a 14-game regular-season schedule.

A perfect season isn’t the only achievement the Patriots can capture in the Meadowlands.  In last week’s win over the ‘Fins, the Pats broke the record for most touchdowns scored in a season.  They enter this week’s tilt only five points away from tying the record for most points scored in a season.  Quarterback Tom Brady needs only two more TD strikes to eclipse Peyton Manning’s record for most touchdown passes in a single season.  Brady’s favorite target, Randy Moss, needs only two more touchdown catches to pass Jerry Rice for most TD grabs in a single season.

The Giants enter the contest on the heels of a 38-21 road win over the Bills last Sunday.  With the victory, the Giants secured a spot in the playoffs for the third straight year.  New York can neither hurt nor improve its standing in the postseason with a victory over the Pats.  The G-Men will face the NFC South-champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the opening round of the playoffs.  The contest was originally scheduled to air only on the NFL Network, but the league decided on Wednesday to simulcast the coverage on NBC and CBS.
