Example On Sunday, February 5th, the two teams you see here will face each other in the biggest game of the NFL season, the Super Bowl. The Giants’ home stadium isn’t in New York; it’s in New Jersey. The Super Bowl is always given a Roman numeral instead of a number, and this year it is Super Bowl XLVI. This year’s game will be played in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is a re-match of the 2008 Super Bowl, when these teams faced also faced each other. The two teams have the same head coaches and same starting quarterbacks now that they had then. New York’s coach is Tom Coughlin and New England’s coach is Bill Belichick. The Patriots have a much better regular season record than the Giants this year. The Patriots won 13 games and lost 3, while the Giants won 9 games and lost 7. But none of that matters — whichever team wins will be the NFL’s champion. Almost as much attention is paid to the half-time show and the commercials as to the game itself.
