The Giants went 3-3 regular season (5-3 both times going into the NFCCG) after Thanksgiving both years.
No one has been close to 1-4 (3-4 going into a CG).
No one has gone into a Conference Championship game with a losing record in their last 7 games and won in this CENTURY. That goes back 12 straight years and possibly more, since I didn't go back farther.
In no way does it mean an automatic victory for the Pats. But to ignore it is foolish.
There are a few folks who are being lazy and using witticisms to knock that fact.
Ah I was just throwing a little guff at you. I don't seriously believe it is better to play poorly after Thanksgiving!
