Super Bowl 2012: New England Patriots Have Allowed Second Most Points In Super Bowl History

Super Bowl 46 will kick off tomorrow in a re-match between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. The game is both a re-match from earlier this season, when the Giants defeated the Patriots by a final score of 24-20, and a re-match of Super Bowl 42 when the Giants and Eli Manning ended the Patriots perfect 18-0 season by a final score of 17-14 with the help of David Tyree's famous helmet.

The game is filled with story lines beyond the re-match. Tom Brady and Eli Manning's legacy's are both on the line and there's also the Peyton Manning watching his arch rival Tom Brady face off against his little brother Eli, in his home stadium.

The Patriots are 3-3 overall in Super Bowls, allowing the second most points in SB history with 165. The Giants are 3-1 all time.
