New York Giants fans are set to honor their Super Bowl champions with a traditional ticker-tape parade through lower Manhattan on Tuesday.

Across the river in New Jersey, where the Giants play their home games, fans are celebrating their team's monster upset of New England.

One fan calls the win revenge for 2004, when the Boston Red Sox came from behind to knock the New York Yankees out of the baseball playoffs.

While Giants fans partied late into the night, it's a different scene in Boston.

Locals slowly left bars after the game, some saying they're "shocked" and "upset" by the Patriots' only loss of the season.

Officials closed some Boston streets and restricted alcohol sales during the game in an effort to control an expected celebration. Police describe the post-game scene as "very peaceful."
