Super Bowl XVLI

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.
