NY Giants Eli Manning can maybe emulate the achievement of his brother from last years superbowl (Peyton Manning) and be part of superbowl winning team. Although they have momentum and have beaten better credentialled opponents away from home the task seems too much. They came in having been ranked 6 and beat Tampa Bay , no 1 ranked NFC Dallas and no 2 ranked Green Bay. Having said this I still think New England will romp home but only two years ago the Pittsburgh Steelers won the superbowl having been the 6th ranked team in the AFC going into the playoffs so it has been done before although the AFC is much much stronger than the NFC, but nevertheless good luck to Giants. They will need it.
The Giants have supposedly won something like 10 straight away games :o but yeah it would be a massive upset if they were to beat New England. Manning at least can say he led his team to the Superbowl 5 years sooner than his brother did.

The Giants have done really well to put heaps of pressure on Brady so far. Patriots up 7-3 just after half-time.

Can be one of the most boring games on Earth Ox but this is probably the best Superbowl ever. Giants get a touchdown with just 35 seconds left to lead 17-14.

Giants win!  :o

Eli Manning joins his brother as a Superbowl winning quarterback. Poor New England loses in the game that matters.

Biggest upset in American Sporting history.
New England now join the Miami Dolphin Team of 1972 to go through undefeated only yo lose the Superbowl. Oh well to draw pararllel lines to AFL is like Collingwood beating Melbourne in the 1958 Grannie.

I prefer to think of GFs the Pies choked in :lol.

New England will be banging their heads over that one play that set up the winning touchdown where the Patriots had Manning all but sacked yet he somehow gets free, breaks free from his guernsey being pulled then guns a throw where it's caught Aussie Rules style by the receiver 30 yards down field.

Roflbowl @ the NY dude proclaiming them being 'WORLD' Champs.
Do any other countries play Gridion ? Even if they dont fair dinkum.
Kind of like the Cats saying they are world champs  :rollin
Same as the MLB (I like the game) but world series plueez

As for the game YAWNFEST, mazing fans stay sober enough 2 see the end result.

Not a real fan of NFL but been following the games on Ch 10's HD channel. Ben Graham should buy a lotto ticket. Dumped then reinstated then dumped again by his former team before getting picked up by Arizona at the last minute and now he is one game away from playing in the Superbowl.  If Phillie wins this morning (Sav Rocca's team) then we'll have both punters in the NFC game next week being former AFL players with the winner heading to the Superbowl.

Was super impressed with Arizona, they played a great game
