The New York Giants foil the New England Patriots again, winning Super Bowl XLVI 21-17 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Four years after the Giants spoiled the Patriots’ quest for perfection, the Giants again came into the game as an underdog win the Lombardi Trophy. At 9-7, the Giants had the worst record for any team that has won the Super Bowl, getting hot at the right time. Eli Manning again wins the Super Bowl MVP, passing for 296 yards with one touchdown.
