Super Bowl XLVI was unlike any other spectacle I have witnessed. Not only was this Super Bowl held in our very own city of Indianapolis, but the game itself came down to the final “Hail Mary”, courtesy of Tom Brady, that fell only a few feet away from being caught in the end zone. However, Eli Manning and the New York Giants once again came out on top, much like the Super Bowl in 2008, when the Giants defeated the Patriots, 17-14, ruining their shot at perfection.
My prediction for the outcome of the game was the Patriots winning by a score of 28-17. Not that I like the Patriots better, I thought they had enough experience with the coaching staff and players to pull out a win. Although, the Giants had been a roll coming into the Super Bowl and in any game, any team can be beaten.
The game got off to a slow start, with Tom Brady getting called for intentional grounding while throwing from the end zone. As a result, the Giants picked up two points for the safety and it looked liked they were on their way to a dominating performance. The Giants outscored the opposing Patriots by a score of 9-0 in the first quarter.
