The 2012 Super Bowl is nearly 48 hour away. NFL fans across the country are readying their best food and preparing to watch the ever-entrancing Super Bowl commercials.
For those who do not remember, these two Super Bowl teams -- the New York Giants and the New England Patriots -- met in a recent championship game, squaring off in Super Bowl XLII in 2008. In that spectacular and surprisingly low-scoring game, the Giants beat the Patriots in a stunning 4th quarter comeback that featured this absurd/amazing play:
WR David Tyree, who caught that spectacular catch, has since retired from the NFL, but the matchup still features a number of returning faces. Both quarterbacks, Eli Manning and Tom Brady, as well as both head coaches, Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick, return for the encore matchup.
