The Super Bowl is rapidly descending upon us and, sadly, the Giants won't be participating. But that doesn't prevent us from having a little fun with trivia from the games the Giants have played in.

We all know that QB Phil Simms had a day to remember in Super Bowl XXI:

  • Highest passer rating, game, 150.92 - Phil Simms - New York Giants vs. Denver, XXI
  • Highest completion percentage, game, (20 attempts), 88% - Phil Simms - N.Y. Giants vs. Denver, XXI (25-22)
In Super Bowl XLVI, QB Eli Manning set a record when he completed his first nine passes to start the game.

Last night, the Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17, to become the first 9-7 team ever to reach the Super Bowl and win it. The 1979 LA Rams and the 2008 Arizona Cardinals were two others that reached the big game but both came away losers.

Watching this game, you wouldn't think it set records for anything other than anxiety, but truth be told, several impressive records were set or tied. Some by longevity and others by skill.

Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin became the oldest coach to win a Super Bowl at 65, topping the Rams' Dick Vermeil who won at age 63.
