January also rang in this famous year by staging the very first Championship game between the AFL and NFL. The merger wouldntt take place for another four years in 1970, so the AFL Kansas City Chiefs led by hall of fame coach Hank Stram took on the legendary NFL Green Bay Packers led by Vince Lombardi. 45 years later, two great teams from different divisions bring it all to the table with the AFC’s New England Patriots doing battle against the NFCs New York Giants.

Bill Belichick will no doubt have his boys ready to play and the same can be said for Tom Coughlin and his Giants. With both teams employing such pass-heavy systems, look for oxygen masks to be doled out to the respective secondaries on each team, as they’ll be getting quite a workout.

Look for this game to be a proverbial shootout between these two as these teams lock horns once again.
