You may not really care which team wins this Sunday at the Super Bowl, as the New England Patriots are going to be taking on the New York Giants in what's sure to be an East Coast powerhouse showdown. Still, you could use the game as an excuse to get together with your friends, have some wings and beer, and ogle all the hot players who are taking the field (not to mention David Beckham will be making a scantily clad appearance).

Not entirely sure who's who? Well, we've done the very tough legwork for you (you're welcome). Take a look at our roundup of the 10 hottest players from Super Bowl XLVI.

Probably one of the most famous and most drool-worthy players of the Super Bowl is the one strutting his stuff there on the left. That's New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is a super-talented player, is married to crazy hot supermodel Gisele Bundchen, has the butt-chin of a Greek god, is a multi-gazillionaire, and happens to be all-around, annoyingly perfect.

But let's not forget about New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. He definitely has a different look going for him, in his more innocent, boyish, cherubic features, but Giants fans simply love him (especially when he's playing well). He's cute and cuddly and someone you could see taking home to mom.

Wes Welker

Patriots tight end Wes Welker may only be 5'9" or so, but his presence is always felt on the football field, in terms of his amazing talent as well as his piercing, dreamy blue eyes. His bone structure and intense gaze are to die for, and his body ain't half bad either.

Defensive end Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants is suave, sexy, talented, and will even give you a wave and burning stare if you happen to shoot a photo of him walking by. He also was born in London and is of Igbo descent, which make him even that much hotter.

Devin McCourty

Look at that smile! Look at that cute hat! Devin McCourty, cornerback for the Patriots, has lovely skin and perfect teeth and has an equally hot twin brother who plays for the Tennessee Titans. Can't go wrong with so many good-looking genes in one family alone!

David Carr

David Carr of the New York Giants may be constantly in Eli's shadow as a backup quarterback, but wow, check out that bone structure. That chiseled jawline. Those wide brown eyes. It's okay if he doesn't get a lot of playing time, as long as he sits on the sideline looking pretty and the camera zooms in on him from time to time.

Chad Ochocinco

You probably already know of Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, but his shenanigans on and off the field tend to make a majority of us not realize how pretty he is. He's got a smokin' body and, from his appearance on Dancing With the Stars, we know he can bust a move. And he blings himself out better than any other NFL star.

Victor Cruz

Every time this wide receiver makes an amazing play, Giants fans yell, "Cruuuuuuz!" Victor Cruz has a mega-watt smile and the fans are obsessed with him. He even knows how to salsa dance. The Puerto Rican also has the ladies swooning when he speaks in Spanish (or at least tries really hard to).

Rob Gronkowski

Patriots fans would most likely go nuts if Rob Gronkowski weren't on this list. If you're into tall men, he'd be perfect for you (he's 6'6"), and he has so many scoring and receiving records, it's hard to keep track. Known as "Gronk," not only does it seem like he has perfect, elvish skin, you really oughta check out his body.

Hakeem Nicks

Victor Cruz's partner in crime, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, is always fun to watch. He's got a nice smile, always looks put together, and seems to be an all-around nice guy who's managed to keep a low profile and stay out of the headlines. He and Cruz will be looking to score some touchdown catches against the Patriots, and who knows if the Pats' cornerbacks will be able to handle their combined hotness.
