    This game was so big that nearly every network had coverage of it. The New England Patriots were attempting to become the first team to go 16-0 and the New York Giants were trying to stop them. We all know what would happen in the Super Bowl a few weeks later, that does not need to be repeated, but tonight the Patriots got the W, and had to claw their way back from a 10 point deficit, the largest of the season.

    Ah, the glory days of the Patriots. Hopefully they can return to that form, but what a game this was!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • New England Coach Bill Belichick: It's a great feeling. Now is the time to take a day or two and appreciate what this team has done, but at the same time we have our biggest game of the year coming up. Pretty soon we need to turn the page and move on.

    • New England Quarterback Tom Brady: We've been dealing with being undefeated all season. It was kind of a strange game. It really doesn't mean much to either team, but it means a lot.
      New England Quarterback Tom Brady: What I'm most proud of is playing a playoff team on the road that was playing extremely hard. We found a way to come back and win. We did the same thing at Dallas. We did the same thing at Indy. We've been in some tough games. Everyone is going to enjoy this one. It happens once every 35 years.

    • New York Quarterback Eli Manning: We didn't win the game, but if you saw everybody in the locker room, everybody was excited. I never saw a locker room so upbeat after a loss because we played so well, did some good things and hung in there in a game where we didn't have to play. We wanted to. We wanted to come out and play well, and we did that.

    • New England Wide Receiver Randy Moss: Hats off to us. I know a lot of people didn't think we were going to do it. A lot of people didn't want us to do it. In this game of football, it's hard to go 16-and-0. As a football player and a fan of the game, my hat's off to this organization.

  • NOTES (1)

    • With NBC and CBS buying the rights to this game, it became the first NFL game ever to be shown on three different networks (NFL Network, CBS, and NBC).
