Perfection for the Patriots or one Giant upset: a Super showdown is set.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will try to complete an unbeaten season Feb. 3 against the New York Giants in the Super Bowl at Glendale, Ariz.
``We'll try to elevate our game for one last performance,'' said Brady, the dimple-chinned, record-setting quarterback with the model girlfriend.
New England (18-0) will attempt to match the 1972 Miami Dolphins as the only teams to complete an undefeated season. Standing in the Patriots' way are the road-warrior Giants (13-6) and Eli Manning - Peyton's little brother, whose moxie and leadership abilities no longer can be questioned.
``We haven't been given a shot,'' Manning said of his Giants, who have won 10 straight on the road. ``But we're here, and I think we're deserving of it.''
Las Vegas oddsmakers might think differently. They installed New England as a 13 1/2-point favorite in the big game, in which New York will get another shot at destroying the Patriots' perfect season.
New England won 38-35 in Week 17, rallying from a 12-point second-half deficit.
``That got us going, momentum,'' Manning said.
At least neither team will have to worry about a frigid forecast in Arizona. On Sunday, New England beat San Diego 21-12 in 23-degree temperatures in the AFC championship at Foxborough, Mass., while New York edged Green Bay 23-20 in overtime in sub-zero conditions in the NFC title game at Lambeau Field.
