Eli Manning and the New York Giants Beat The Patriots Yet Again
Well,Super Bowl 46 just ended about 20 minutes ago. Eli Manning and his New York Giants just did it again! They beat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots by the score of 21-17. Just a great game that went down to the last second, literally!
With the Patriots leading by the score of 17-15, Eli Manning drove the Giants down the field. Mario Manningham made a huge catch! Manningham was able to control the ball and keep both feet in bounds for the completion to extend the Giants winning drive. Probably the play of the game and a play that New York Giants’ fans will remember forever.
It was interesting how the Giants scored their winning touchdown. Brandon Jacobs tried to stop at the 1-yard line in attempt to run out the clock or at least give Tom Brady as little time as possible for a comeback. But Jacobs’ momentum carried him into the end zone.
That left Tom Brady with 59 seconds left on the clock and a chance for the Patriots to try and march down the field for a winning score. But the Giants defense held as they sacked Brady and set up a 4th and 16 for New England and one last shot. Om the final play, Tom Brady scrambled out of the pocket and threw a hail mary into the end zone. The ball was so close to being caught by Rob Gronkowski as it was just out of his grasp. The ball hit the turf as time ran out.
Eli Manning is one cool cat. He should now no doubt be considered one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. Manning now has 2 Super Bowl wins in his 8 years in the league. In tonight’s Super Bowl 46, Eli Manning passed for 296 yards with 1 touchdown and was 30-40 in pass attempts.
For the Pats, Tom Brady did his part as he came so close to getting his 4th Super Bowl ring. Brady passed for 276 yards with 2 touchdowns and was 27-41 in pass attempts. What really hurt New England was their talented tight end Rob Gronkowski being injured. You have to give the kid “Gronk” a ton of credit as he was out there trying to run on that bad ankle. You could see that he wasn’t his dominant self.
Tonight’s game will be one for the ages. Your New York Giants are your 2012 Super Bowl Champions!
