The Patriots and Giants will meet up at this year's Super Bowl in Indianapolis. What that means is that they have done the best job of completing the Super Bowl puzzle.
Each year, it's debated what the perfect formula is for constructing a championship caliber team. The Pats have done well figuring it out this past decade, as they'll be playing in their fifth Super Bowl in 11 years. They haven't won the big game since following the 2004 season, though, so New England is certainly hungry.
No matter how you slice it, championship teams usually — at one point or another — flex their muscle in all facets of the game. They must be capable on offense, defense, special teams, in terms of coaching, and show a lot of heart. This formula is drawn up, as seen above, by Will O'Toole.
