The NFL now has its Super Bowl Champs, the New York Giants, who despite being the underdogs of the game made a huge impact by beating the New England Patriots. Going into this game it could appear to others and the media that the Patriots would be a shoe in for the victory.
But Eli Manning proved otherwise as he handed the ball off to Ahmad Bradshaw for a touchdown with 57 seconds left in the game for a five point lead. Though the Giants two-point conversion wasn’t a success it left Tom Brady with under a minute to make a comeback. Unfortunately this comeback did not happen a sack and dropped passes by the receivers. Which meant the NFL had its champs, the New York Giants and quarterback, Eli Manning as the Super Bowl XLVI’s MVP.
Being a lover of the game of football, I’d have to say that the game turned out a complete success. It was exciting with no clear cut favorite for the MVP trophy. Though I was rooting for the Patriots for this one, I have to give credit where credit is due and give a big hand clap for the Giants doing what they needed to do to come out with a victory. In the end, Congratulations to them.
