Super Bowl XX: Jan. 26, 1986

Bears 46, Patriots 10

On Sunday, two of the more storied franchises in NFL history will play one another in Super Bowl XLVI. Neither is a stranger to the big stage: the Giants have appeared in four Super Bowls (3-1) and the Patriots have played in six (3-3), with New York beating New England 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII.

In anticipation of their matchup, SI.com looks back at both teams' previous Super Bowl appearances.

The underdog Patriots were no match for the fearsome '85 Bears in Super Bowl XX, getting blown out 46-10 by the Monsters of the Midway. The 36-point loss is the second worst defeat in Super Bowl history.
