New York Giants vs. New England Patriots: Who Wins the Super Bowl of Food?

This year we have a true Super Bowl of food and football. New England vs. New York.

These regions have intense rivalries involving sports teams, quality of life, and, yes, food. When the Patriots were based in Boston, it was not a very good food town, but the combination of Boston's emergence as a serious food town and the Patriots now representing all of New England makes this food fight a lot fairer.

Let's break down this Super Bowl of Food into the following categories: pizza, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, ice cream, breakfast, bakeries, and soup.

So Who Wins?

In many of the categories, the two teams are very, very close. The game almost feels like it should be a toss-up. But hey, I'm a lifelong Giants fan, so I think the Giants are not going to let Brady feel comfortable. And Eli is going to shred the Patriots' pass defense.

Final score: Giants 31; Patriots 24.
