    Why history favors the Giants.

    Oftentimes, in the conference title games, one team will win at home, while the other team will win on the road.

    And in recent Super Bowl history, the team that won its conference on the road usually defeated the team that won its conference at home.



    2000: Ravens beat the Raiders on the road for AFC title. Giants beat the Vikings at home for NFC title. Super Bowl: Ravens won.

    2001: Patriots beat the Steelers on the road for AFC title. Rams beat the Eagles at home for NFC title. Super Bowl: Patriots won.

    2002: Buccaneers beat the Eagles on the road for NFC title. Raiders beat the Titans at home for AFC title. Super Bowl: Buccaneers won.

    2004: Patriots beat the Steelers on the road for AFC title. Eagles beat the Falcons at home for NFC title. Super Bowl: Patriots won.

    2005: Steelers beat the Broncos on the road for AFC title. Seahawks beat the Panthers at home for NFC title. Super Bowl: Steelers won.

    2007: Giants beat the Packers on the road for NFC title. Patriots beat the Chargers at home for AFC title. Super Bowl: Giants won.

    2010: Packers beat the Bears on the road for NFC title. Steelers beat the Jets at home for AFC title. Super Bowl: Packers won.

    2011: Giants beat the 49ers on the road for NFC title. Patriots beat the Ravens at home for AFC title. Super Bowl: (Giants?)

    Other times, like 2008 and 2009, both Super Bowl participants were the home team victor at their conference title games. So the difference may be even starker.

    So the difference comes down to the team that had the better season and the team who is hotter at the moment. I'll take hot all day and twice on Super Sunday!

    Both teams are Hot, Pats UN LIKE other #1 seeds in the Past had play to the last minute of every regular season game to insure Homefield. Giants are a great team as are the Pats the better team that Sunday wins it all.

    Ideally, but we've seen things turn out unfortunately otherwise.

    You know what -- I just don't see the Giants going through everything they went through this season; beating GB and SF on the road; and losing this game to anyone.

    They're not losing this game.

    And in the Super Bowl, the team that won its conference on the road usually (within the last 11 years, at least) will win it all.

    It is quite eerie, yes. It means that the No. 1# playoff seed in a conference is actually quite unlikely to win the Super Bowl.
