Patriots complete a 16-0 regular season finish, the first undefeated NFL regular season in 35 years. The game was simulcast on NFL Network, NBC, and CBS. The game was also available to watch online at NFL.com/Live. The game was the first three-network simulcast in NFL history and the first simulcast of any kind of an NFL game since Super Bowl I in 1967, when CBS and NBC both televised the first meeting of the champions of the newly merged National Football League and American Football League.[1]

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady surpasses Peyton Manning (49 touchdowns; 2004) with his 50th touchdown of the season, a pass to wide receiver Randy Moss, which coincidentally was Moss' 23rd receiving touchdown of the year surpassing Jerry Rice (22 touchdowns; 1987). The Patriots became the highest scoring team in a single season (594 points) surpassing the 1998 Vikings' 556 points.

The Patriots and Giants would meet again in Super Bowl XLII over a month later. The Patriots were still on their undefeated streak (18-0) while the Giants were winners of an NFL-record 10-straight road games. The Giants defeated the Patriots in the rematch by a score of 17–14 to claim their third Super Bowl championship.
