Giants 2007 vs. 2011 Coincidences...
 
In both years they lost bad games to Washington in Week 15 (22-10 vs. 23-10) but that's not the most of it...

In 2007, the Giants started the playoffs by easily beating an NFC South (Bucs) team. Then they beat the No. 1 seed (Cowboys) on the road. Then they beat the No. 2 seed (Packers) in the conference title game when the opponent turned it over in overtime (A Farve INT) and gave the Giants a short field and the Giants won on a Lawrence Tynes overtime field goal. Then they moved on to face the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

In 2011 let's see....
NFC South (Falcons) - we kicked their ass.
No.1 Seed defeated (Packers)
No.2 Seed defeated after turnover in OT via Field Goal by Tynes. (49ers)
Patriots in Super Bowl.

Just have to beat the Pats to complete the unlikely chain of events a second time.

:lol

We lost 38-35 at home both times to an undefeated team (2007 Pats/2011 GB). Both were moral victories though, and showed the team that they can compete with the big boys.

:lol




The Giants were at home against Atlanta. Weird cuz I remember Eli losing his last couple home playoff games.

The conference title games were similar. :eek:

- Giants winning the NFC title game on the road (under nasty weather conditions) in overtime on a field goal. 23-20 OT win Green Bay in 2007 season; 20-17 OT win over San Fran in 2011 season.

- Patriots winning the AFC title game at home by single digit. 21-12 win over Chargers in 2007 season; 23-20 win over Ravens in 2011 season.

Another note here: The Giants played the AFC East in 07...just like they did in 2011.

Corrected. Yes, before this year we never won a playoff game in any other year with Eli, and some of them were home games.

it would be funny if it's Devin Thomas. He was the guy who recovered both fumbles in the championship game. Then he possibly catches the big pass? :lol
