Giants Win Super Bowl 2012: Takes New York Lombardi Trophy

Eli Manning led the Giants to their second NFL championship in 4 years on Sunday, 21 -17 over the New England Patriots.


A rare Super Bowl safety and Eli Manning’s 2-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz gave the New York Giants a 9-0 lead over the New England Patriots after the first quarter of the NFL championship game Sunday night.

But Patriots field goal and then last minute touchdown make the score 10 – 9.

Brady and Co. join the 1985 Bears (vs. the Patriots) and the 2009 Colts (vs. the Saints) as teams with 96-yard drives. The march, which ended with a 4-yard touchdown strike to RB Danny Woodhead with just 8 seconds left in the first half, couldn’t have come at a better time for New England.
