Giants Beat 49ers in OT, Setting Up Patriots-Giants Super Bowl Rematch


The New York Giants won a thrilling game in overtime over the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC Championship and set up a Patriots-Giants Super Bowl. The obvious storyline will be the rematch of the 2007 Super Bowl that saw the Giants upset the Patriots, ending their perfect season at 18-1. Here are some other storylines likely to surface over the next two weeks, leading up to Super Bowl XLVI:

Can Eli Manning top brother Peyton and win a second Super Bowl?

Can Tom Brady tie Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw by winning a 4th Super Bowl? 

Can the Patriots overcome the Giants’ pass rush that beat them in Super Bowl XLII?

How is Rob Gronkowski’s ankle?

The rematch storyline and the Manning’s storyline figure to be the top two throughout the build-up to the Super Bowl. Can you handle two weeks of helmet catch replays?
