The Patriots and Giants first squared off at Harvard Stadium in 1970. New England was blanked on the scoreboard that day, but leads the regular season series 5-4 over the past four decades. The teams have faced each other just once in the playoffs, in a game Patriots fans won't soon forget - the Super Bowl XLII loss.
Super Bowl XLVI will be the third time the Patriots and Giants have competed this season, as the Giants won both a preseason and a Week 9 meeting. The last time New England beat New York was the regular-season finale of 2007 that got the Patriots to 16-0.
Take a look at some of the best games between the teams.
