The stats: 8-for-21, 112 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT
The result: Patriots 17, Giants 6
Even before Eli Manning was a Giant, Big Blue still gave Brady a tough time. Brady threw for just 121 yards on eight completions in this one and was sacked twice by Michael Strahan. But thanks to an even worse game from then-Giants QB Kerry Collins, who threw four interceptions, the Patriots were able to come up with a 17-6 win in Foxboro. The Pats wouldn’t face the Giants again until 2007, when they nearly burst their 16-0 season in Week 17.
