With the game on the line, Tom Brady would be a quarterback you want to go to. Maybe not against the New York Giants. The Giants withstood a late New England push to win Super Bowl XLVI, besting the Patriots 21-17 on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. After a touchback, the Patriots took … Continue Reading →
You don’t see this too often, but New England allowed the Giants to score with 57 seconds left as Ahmad Bradshaw ran in from six yards out as the Giants went ahead 21-17 with 57 seconds left. The two-point conversion failed. Bradshaw was too far in before he realized what was going on. He tried … Continue Reading →
We’re at the two-minute warning of Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and the Giants are well inside field goal range, taking the ball inside the New England 20-yard line down 17-15. Eli Manning is 4-of-5 for 70 yards on the drive, which started at New York’s 12-yard line.
New England and Tom Brady worked nearly six minutes off the clock, but were forced to punt. Taking over at their own 8-yard line, the Patriots have, at the very least, reversed the field position battle by moving the ball into Giants territory, but Brady’s pass on 3rd-and-11 was broken up, allowing the Giants to … Continue Reading →

The good field position looked like it was going to pay off big for New York, but its drive stalled deep in New England territory, and Lawrence Tynes kicked a 33-yard field goal to bring the game within another safety, 17-15, late in the third quarter at Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in … Continue Reading →
Hold your breath Giants fans. Jason Pierre Paul went down while assisting on a tackle, but he got up and went to the sidelines and jogged off the field under his own power. The Giants got the stop they needed later in the drive as Justin Tuck sacked Tom Brady on 3rd-and-8, forcing a New … Continue Reading →
The Giants responded well to New England’s opening touchdown drive with a 10-play drive that culminated in a 38-yard field goal from Lawrence Tynes to bring New York within five, 17-12, in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Eli Manning is now 18-of-24 for 153 yards and a … Continue Reading →
