How much will big-game experience come into play in Sunday's NFC Championship? The Giants have the advantage in that category, largely based on their Super Bowl-winning season of 2007.

It should be noted, that in the pivotal NFC Championship en route to San Francisco's first Super Bowl, the numbers were similarly tilted in the Cowboys' favor.
