    Giants first team in NFL to make SB with Minus PT Differential

    Another first for the GMEN!!!

    We had 394 points for
    We had 400 points against us
    Equals a -minus 6
    No NFL Team has ever made SB while scoring less then they gave up
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore

    Also another Interesting note is that no 9-7 Team has ever won the SB. 2 have made it with that Record but both lost the Big Game. So Media is saying the Giants are could be the WORST team to win the SB in NFL history. Now i dont think that is a fair Statement. It may very well be the worst to win Record Wise but certainly not the Worst in that sense of the term.




    We also became the 3rd team in a row of late to beat the Falcons in Playoffs and go onto the SB. Packers did it last season and Cards in 08

    Quite mind boggling really. The only reason is because we were in a weak division this season and got hot at the right time. All of our wins early on were close, and most our loses were close. Saints game is what tilted it negative. But we are a completely different defense right now.
