The New York Giants did it to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots once again as they won Super Bowl 46 in Indianapolis, 21-17 to make it two-for two in Super Bowl matchups with the Patriots.

Eli Manning, who was named Super Bowl MVP,  threw for a touchdown and Ahmad
Bradshaw (17 carries for 72 yards) scored on a six-yard scoring run with just over a minute remaining in the final quarter to provide the difference.
The Giants, who finished the regular season at 9-7, outgained New England 396-349 in total yardage. Manning threw for 296 yards and hooked up with Victor Cruz on a two-yard scoring pass to give New York a 9-0 lead after one quarter.
A safety for the Giants defense came as Brady was called for intentional grounding the ball in his own end zone to make it 2-0.
Brady finished with 276 yards passing and two touchdowns with one interception.
New England stormed back from 9-0 down to go ahead 10-9 at the half when Brady hit Aaron Hernandez on a touchdown pass to go along with a Stephen Gostkowski  28-yard field goal.
The Patriots made it 17-9 in the third quarter when Brady hooked up with running back Danny Woodhead on a scoring pass. Following that, the Giants got a pair of field goals from Lawrence Tynes in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 17-15 heading to the final quarter.
 The Giants went on a nine play, 88-yard drive and scored the winning touchdown courtesy of the Bradshaw run to clinch their second Super Bowl title in the last five years.
