Super Bowl 2012: New York Giants QB Eli Manning Takes Home MVP Honors

The New York Giants triumphed over the New England Patriots by a 21-17 margin in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday night, and Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning was absolutely outstanding for the champs. Manning completed 30 of 40 pass attempts for 296 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions. He also authored a clutch fourth quarter drive that resulted in the go-ahead touchdown for New York.

That drive began with a big pass play to Mario Manningham which got the ball out near midfield, and from there the Giants were able to work their way into field goal range, and eventually inside the 10 yard line. Ahmad Bradshaw scored the game-winner on a carry from six yards out.
