The New England Patriots and New York Giants have combined for 11 conference championships (six for New England, five for New York). However, this season was the first time that they have hoisted the new, redesigned conference championship trophies.

Prior to the 2011 NFL Playoffs (following the 2010 season), the NFL enlisted the help of Tiffany & Co. to redesign the AFC’s Lamar Hunt Trophy and the NFC’s George Halas Trophy.

In 2009, Only A Game’s Doug Tribou visited the company’s trophy-making headquarters in New Jersey. Browse his photo gallery and listen to his story on Tiffany & Co.
