The New York Giants won the Super Bowl last night, gaining their fourth title after defeating the New England Patriotswith a final score of 21 – 17.
Eli Manning and the Giants one-upped Tom Brady and the Patriots again, coming back with a last-minute score to beat New England 21-17 Sunday night for New York’s fourth Super Bowl title.
It was a rematch of the 2008 NFL championship, when Manning led New York past New England to ruin the Patriots’ bid for a perfect season.
This was the first Super Bowl with two starting quarterbacks who previously won the big game’s MVP award — and they took turns being brilliant. Manning became the first QB to open a Super Bowl with nine consecutive completions. Later, Brady put together a run of 16 completions in a row, breaking another Super Bowl mark.
But in the end, it was Manning who directed the nine-play, 88-yard drive that put New York ahead.
One of the game’s highlights and funniest moments was when Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (#44) “accidentally” scored a touchdown with just 57 seconds left on the clock by basically sitting down in the end-zone. Hilarious!
It should also be noted that Giants Quarterback Eli Manning (#10) was the recipient of the prestigious Vince Lombardi MVP Trophy.
Congrats to the Giants on their big win!
