The New England Patriots broke a streak before Super Bowl XLVI even kicked off.
The Patriots won the pregame coin toss, the first time the AFC has won the toss in 15 Super Bowls.
As the visiting team, the Giants called tails and the coin came up heads.
New England coach Bill Belichick deferred on receiving the kick until the second half.
The winner of the coin toss hasn't been an omen of success to come. The NFC won only five of the 14 games during the streak.
