Beginning with the 2003 AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts, Givens scored at least one touchdown the Patriots' next seven playoff games, including both Super Bowl XXXVIII and Super Bowl XXXIX. In2005, Givens caught a career-high 59 passes and was the Patriots' number two receiver for the second year in a row.
