Giants Beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, Again

By Eleanor Barkhorn

The Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI , 21-17, a repeat of their 2008 victory over New England in 2008. It's also the second Super Bowl win for Giants quarterback Eli Manning, whose status as an "elite" quarterback was in question earlier this season.

The game was a showcase for Manning's talents as well as those of Tom Brady, QB for the Patriots:

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.
