Here are three stats, two useless, another to be determined and other than the first one below, the other useless stat is up for debate:
(1) The Giants are 2-0 in the Super Bowl against teams they played in the regular season (beat Broncos in '86; lost to Bills at home in '90) and 0-1 against a Super Bowl opponent they had not previously met that season; the Patriots are 1-1 in rematches of regular season matchups ('85 = lost to Bears in both reg. season and Super Bowl; '01 lost to Rams during season, won in Super Bowl) and 2-1 in non-rematches (beat Panthers, Eagles; lost to Packers).
(2) The Giants outscored their opponents 373-351 this year during the season, 68-51 in the postseason; the Patriots outscored their opponents 589-274 this season and 52-32 in the playoffs.
(3) No quarterback who led the NFL in passing yardage in a given season has won the Super Bowl that season; Tom Brady led the NFL in passing yards this year.
