Super Bowl Recap

New York and New England once again gave us a great Super Bowl. While not as good as the last meeting, this game provided plenty of excitement and thrill. Any time a game comes down to the last play, it is always a quality game. Once again, Eli Manning came through in the 4th quarter and earned MVP honors. There really are 3 moments that stand out as big plays in this game.

1) Manningham Makes A Grab
This play will go down as what really got the Giants moving down the field for the go-ahead score. Everything about this play looked good.

2) Wes Welker's Drop
Welker may be the most sure handed receiver in the game, but when crunch-time came, Welker did the unthinkable, he dropped a pass. While the pass wasn't the greatest for Brady, Welker should have made this catch. While not on the last drive, this could have entirely changed the outcome of the game.

3) Ballard Won't Go Down Without a Fight
While this didn't happen on the field, this is the embodiment of just how much this game means to the players. The effort just to get back in the game is commendable. Here is to wishing Ballard a swift recovery.
