GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Giants had the perfect answer for the suddenly imperfect Patriots: a big, bad defense and an improbable comeback led by their own Mr. Cool quarterback, Eli Manning. In one of football's biggest shockers, New York shattered New England's unbeaten season as Manning hit Plaxico Burress on a 13-yard fade with 35 seconds left in the Super Bowl.
Sunday's 17-14 win was the Giants' 11th straight on the road, and the first time the Patriots tasted defeat in more than a year.
It was the most bitter of losses, too, because New England (18-1) was one play from winning, but its defense couldn't stop a 12-play, 83- yard drive that featured a spectacular leaping catch by David Tyree, who scored New York's first touchdown.
Tom Brady, the league's Most Valuable Player and winner of his first three Super Bowls, was battered all game. He was sacked five times, hurried a dozen more, and at one point wound up on his knees, his hands on his hips following one of many poor throws.
Hardly a familiar position for the record-setting quarterback. And a totally strange outcome for a team that seemed destined for historic glory.
Oddly, it was a loss to the Patriots that sparked New York's stunning run to its third Super Bowl and sixth NFL title. New England won 38-35 in Week 17 as the Patriots became the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to go spotless through the regular season. But by playing hard in a meaningless game for them, the Giants gained something of a swagger.
Their growing confidence carried them through playoff victories at Tampa, Dallas and Green Bay, and then past the mightiest opponent of all.

I'm from Philly, but would like to send a heartfelt CONGRATS to all the New Yorkers and the Giants fans. I pulled for you guys all the way. Eli *** up the critics, Plax came up big when needed and the defense put pretty boy Brady in his place, which is on his azz. Sorry Pats fans, it's hard to win when you don't have the plays on video before the game starts...
I can not believe that I think the game was fixed
I told yall. Now everybody pay up!
Go NY !!

When New Englan couldn't use that cheating "Spygate" they used against St. Louis in 2002's Supr Bowl, or as they've been using they're just like any other team lmao!!!!! Actually some of their regular season wins were close one's so they really weren't that good!! Lol at people dowing New York, they had the 19-0 papers ready and all of that lmao!! Now they got to burn em up!!!! Pursuit of perfection me ***, greatest team my ***!! 72 Dolphins still are the best, and New York showed New England how they really were as a team. Poeple rode New Englad all season I forgot the season was started they talked about New England so much. People still can't let it go they lost, because they really thought they were going to when. New York's doubters are mad as hell, commnetators and all are speechless!
GO NEW YORK GIANTS!!!
***, I should have put $50 on this ***!!!
I'm happy for all the GIANTS fans they deserved to win. I was supporting the Giants because I cant STAND THE PATRIOTS. BTW MTO you need to give credit where credit is due and give yahoo the credit for this report because i know for a fact that you copied and pasted this article.
CAN YA'LL SAY 18-1 18-1 18-1 18-1 18-1
NEXT YEAR IT'S COLTS TIME...LET'S GET IT GOING
JuicyLips - Oohhhhhhhhhh You mad now, huh? LMA[SPAM]OOOOOOO.
Yay for the Giants!! Tom Brady and that *** azz Belichick are so over!! Hahahaha!!
And what is the big deal with Tom's skeletal girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen? She is so plain looking and this *** is THE world's richest supermodel? There are a TON of other supermodels that really are beautiful. Gisele isn't even all that attractive. He should've stuck to Bridget Moynahan. She seems nicer and is much prettier!
MAD????...NAH JUST SAD U THINK UR TEAM IS BETTER THAN MINES..SMH...WE THE BEST BABY!!!!!
Did I say one team was better than the other? You're the one crying more than the Pats right now. Stop playin. Had they won you would have been in my shoes saying your congrats. But you're not so kick rocks hoe...G[SPAM][SPAM]OOOOOOOO GIANTS!!!!
karma is a b itch. bill belichick is a sore azz loser. i can't stand his azz. that's waht u get 4 cheating f uck face. 18 wins and no title to show for it. hahahaha. big ups to eli on that montana-esqe final drive *** big ups to tyree for making that espy winning catch. also big ups to our D-linemen in brady's face allll nite. good job. see ya'll cats at tha parade 2morrow in tha canyon of heroes. sh it betta not rain.
Kick rocks and suck ***. The best team won, period. I like the Pats, but the Giants are wassup. I lost respect for the Pats last nite tho'. They left the field early and what-not...........Straight *** move!
Go New York Go New York Go..........We Did it New York.........We Did It.....
It's funny how his Peyton won super bowl last year now Eli wins the next year. When I heard he was going to the super bowl I knew NY was going to win. I guess they got to keep Archie happy. Imagine having both of his sons win super bowl 2 years in a row.
LMAO @ JuicyLips for being so upset!!!
Belichick blew the game by not going for the field goal on 4th and 13 earlier in the game. He does that, then that last TD pass by Manning just ties the game. And the Giants D was spent at the end of the game.
I give it up to the Giants though....They did what they had to do...Pats haters rejoice lol
no sir.... PITTSBURGH STEELERS STILL THE GREATEST!!!
Well to the Patriot fans, at least yall did make history
FOR WINNING EVERYTHING BUT THE SUPERBOWL!!!!
BIG BLUE ROCKS (IN YA MOUTHS)!!!!
Don't blame JuicyLips...if you come down to Boston, you're liable to get assaulted if you talk *** about the Pats or Red Sox!! It's life up here...JuicyLips, I feel you! LoL
There were dudes I know teary-eyed over this...BIG dudes. I'm like...dam, I wanted them to win too...but y'all on another level.
SMH in disbelief!! Don't dispair Juicy, PATS will win it next year and the year after!!!!
...THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ARE IN A DEEP SCANDAL FOR HAVING SOMEONE VIDEOTAPE THE JETS PLAY BOOKS EARLY IN THE SEASON AND FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT...THIS IS STILL BEING INVESTIGATED...IT'S ONLY IRONIC THAT THEY WOULD HAVE AN UNBEATEN SEASON (18-0) ONLY TO TURN AROUND AND LOSE THE ONE GAME THAT MATTERS THE MOST...THE SUPERBOWL...THERES A LESSON TO BE LEARNED HERE...CHEATING MAY HELP YOU WIN, BUT WHEN IT MATTERS THE MOST YOU WILL DEFINATELY LOSE.....
19 and NO!!! lol
THe PAts could have won all the games they wanted to this season, but they didnt win the one that mattered. Instead they helped maked the Giants a legend, fairy-tale story!!! Go GIANTS..
NYC is my hometown kid!!!!!!!
Congratulations giant nation. I still f***in hate em cuz they put tha COWBOYZ (git it rite ya dig) out tha playoffs but we comin nex season ya feel me??!!
$Cadets caint f**k wit a vet$
YEA WIPING MY TEARS WITH THEM BIG BILLS.....WHATEVA LIFE GOES ON...AND THERE'S ALWAYS NEXT YEAR...UNTIL THEN WE STILL GOT THE CELTICS AND THE REDSOX,AND THE BRUINS.........SO BOOOOOYYYYAHHHH...KISS MY NEW ENGLAND A$$ B*TCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what a game being a die hard eagles fan i give the giants much resepect being that they are from the nfc east and and we are rivals but they did their thing beating tom brady up like that i loved it and the pats are cheaters too big ups to new york early !!!
the crazy thing is that no one will remember 18-1. This is a huge upset for the pats fan...but I ain't one of them. NY STAND THE *F* up!!!!
In a season where they should have been remembered for perfection, they are remembered for the biggest upset in the NFL history. The better team won because they played for it. The defense was on point last ***.
GO GIANTS!!!! YEAH BABY!!!! NYC STAND UP!!!! thats heart right there..they had all the odds against them..playing a so-called perfect team..they busted their *** and earned this title..it wasnt given to them and it wasnt expected, thats what makes it even sweeter! GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Juicylips, don't you know that it doesn't matter if your team won 18 games. They didn't win the game that counted the most and maybe if this were a best of seven series then I think the Pats would've won it but that's not how it is. I'm a Cowboys fan but I have to give it up to the G-Men.
New York is number 1 again it took some years since we had a championship but WE'RE BACK. GGGGG-MEN! Peace Brooklyn Forever!
The GIANT Upset!!!! -B.
@handsomeJE I KNOW HOW THE GAME WORKS...DIDNT YOU READ THAT ITS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD...WE STILL GOT OTHER TEAMS IN OTHER SPORTS THATS WINNING SO WHY WOULD I BE MAD???? EXAMPLE:CELTICS,REDSOX,AND THE BRUINS
I STILL LOVE MY TEAM EVEN THOUGH WE LOSE...NEXT YEAR YALL WONT BE SAYING THAT BECAUSE ITS GONNA BE ON....AND YALL GONNA BE CRYING....
SUPER BOWL IS OVER LETS MOVE ON TO SUPER TUESDAY..
*** BOSTON *** BOSTON *** BOSTON
HAAAAAAAAAAAA YALL GOT YA *** KICKED IM SO GLAD RANDY MOSS DOING HIS DUMB *** DANCE LIKE THE WON LOLLLLLL
TO ALL YOU FANS THAT THINK THE PATS ARE "THE BEST".....SORRY TO BREAK UR LIL HEARTS...AGAIN BUT HE BEST WINS THE SUPERBOWL, "HE BIG ONE", NOT 18 POINTLESS GAMES IN ROLL. "THE BEST" WINS HE MOST IMPORTANT GAME OF THE SEASON!!!
****GET OVER IT BYTCHEZ****
GO WATCH THE GIANTS CELEBRATE TOMORROW IN MANHATTAN!! LOL
i hate foot ball
Words can't even describe how happy I am they won!!! I just knew they were going to win, but in the 4th quarter I became a little doubtful. I mean how amazing was that touchdown with only 30 seconds left in the 4th quarter. Plaxico was crying; Belichick was ***. Tom Brady claimed the reason why the Pats didn't win was because of his ankle injury (LOL). I HATE THE PATRIOTS!!!
And I picked the Giants to win! Dammit I should of bet somebody...LOL
as a chicago native and lifelong chicago bears fan anybody who knows anything about football knows i hate the packers lol but i can't stand the dayum pats arrogant cheating arses bellecheck got the personality of a dirty rock dingy sweatshirt wearing mofo bellecheck gon sell dvds of team plays and practices for 59.95 like o-dog lol one of the best superbowls i ever seen not a giant or patriot fan but i was pulling for the lesser of 2 evils lol feel bad for junior seau and randy moss other than that fugg the cheating arse patriots oh yeah
IM SO CHI YOU THOUGHT I WAS BASHFUL
I thought the Giants were going to win anyway. They were too hungry for it. NY GIANTS FANS REPRESENT NEW YORK BABY! WHAT!! WHAT!!!
*** i was so freaking happy the giants beat the patriots!!!! i cant stand that stuck up coach of theirs...but i love randy moss tho! i figured they were gonna lose!! not a great example of perfection anymore!!!! lmao!!! maybe next year!!!! hahahahahaha
It wasn't the Super Bowl, it was the Hater Bowl since there was a lot of hate against the Patriots trying to attempt the perfect season. The current Super Bowl champs need to prove themselves next year like the Indianapolis Colts who made it to the playoffs the next year. And as a fan of the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Redskins, we have their number since the Ravens wiped them seven years ago with a #1 defense, and records for no 1000 yards rushing and least amount of points scored during the season while the Skins have a recent win against them. Giants fans better enjoy your week of celebrations before the reality of proving yourselves comes next season.
I knew MTO would post this... how could you not though... good job MTO
it was nice to see the patriots get they *** beat.they should have kicked that field goal.cuz i think that motivated the giants even more to spank that ***.you know the defense was like these mother *** is really going for it like they think they already won.who's the genious now
im not a giant fan but they earned that 4 real eli is the man
