Many may not like it, but the way things are looking on paper, a New England Patriots/New York Giants Super Bowl LII matchup is very possible.
The New England Patriots and New York Giants have met in the Super Bowl twice in the last nine years. Both wins have gone to the Giants in upset fashion, including ruining the Patriots perfect season in the 2007 season.
New England is once again the favorite to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl next season. The Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers are big threats to them, but they still have Tom Brady. As they proved in Super Bowl LI, with Brady, anything is possible.
On the other side of the NFL, the Giants are one of many teams that could represent the NFC in Super Bowl LII. New York has an amazing defense, possibly one better than the 2007 team that had Michael Strahan. They also have one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL.
Eli Manning continues to play well enough to keep the Giants over .500 every year. Not only that, but now he has a receiver who catches every pass thrown his way in Odell Beckham Jr. He also has an up-and-coming receiver in Sterling Shepard and a new weapon in Brandon Marshall.
There are other threats in the NFC for the Patriots, but there’s a very good chance that the Patriots and Giants could meet for the third time in the Super Bowl. This would be the second time two teams met three times in a Super Bowl. The Steelers and Dallas Cowboys met three times in the Super Bowl with the Steelers winning two of them.
Super Bowl LII will be played on Feb. 4, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN. The game will be broadcasted on NBC. This is the second Super Bowl to be played in Minnesota. The Washington Redskins defeated the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI. With Both the Patriots and the Giants hoping to be playoff teams next season, we might see both teams squaring off in Super Bowl LII
