As everyone knows, the New England Patriots came up short in their bid for a perfect 19-0 season, losing in the final minute of the Super Bowl. The victorious New York Giants ended the season on quite a win streak of their own, however.

After losing their season opener at Dallas, the Giants swept their remaining seven road games of the regular season (strangely enough, they were only 3-5 at home, for an overall 10-6 mark). New York then won playoff games at Tampa Bay, at Dallas, and at Green Bay, for an NFL-record 10 straight road wins (if one accepts the idea of combining regular-season and playoff games).

The Super Bowl, of course, represented the Giants' 11th straight win away from home, but it was played on a neutral field in Glendale, Arizona, and not on the opponent's home turf.
