The New England Patriots have defeated every single team in the NFL since they lost in Super Bowl XLII in 2008 -- except for the New York Giants.

When quarterback Eli Manning was told about this wild stat on Wednesday by beat reporter Art Stapleton, he had the perfect response:

The Giants play the Patriots every four years and they have matched up with them twice since Super Bowl XLII. The first was a Week 9 2011 regular season game in New England where Manning engineered a late fourth quarter touchdown drive and the Giants won 24-20. Later that same season, the Giants defeated the Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI, again, on a late fourth quarter touchdown drive led by Manning.
