I just watched one of the most amazing Superbowls.
Congratulations to Eli Manning and the New York Giants.
Winners of Superbowl XL II.
Eli - MVP this year.
Bloomberg news reported...
Manning, whose brother Peyton was named Super Bowl MVP a year ago, completed 19 of 34 passes for 255 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. He capped an 83-yard drive with a 13-yard scoring pass to Plaxico Burress with 39 seconds left in the game.
``We believed in ourselves all year,'' Manning said at a televised postgame news conference in Glendale, Arizona. ``That's the position you want to be in. You want to have the ball in your hands with four minutes left. You've got to score a touchdown. That's where you want to be, with a chance to win the game.''
The Giants' 12-play game-winning drive included a play where Manning broke free from a knot of defenders and found receiver David Tyree for a 32-yard reception. Tyree caught the ball over his head, holding it against his helmet as he was brought to the ground. The Giants scored four plays later.
``I don't know if there's ever been a bigger play in the Super Bowl than that play, at least from my viewpoint,'' Giants coach Tom Coughlin said at a news conference.
