Giant Upset!

14-point underdog New York Giants upset the undefeated New England Patriots...much like the the upstart 18-point underdog New England Patriots upset the St. Louis Rams in 2001.

Super Bowl XLII: New York Giants 17, New England Patriots 14.

We spent the weekend in New York City/Times Square/Marriot Marquis for a Fresh Air Fund convention. On the way home, we stopped at the inlaws' (outlaws') home and watched most of the Super Bowl there, and left to go home to Pa. with the Patriots up 7-3. On crappy AM radio reception all the way home, we heard what may have been the greatest Super Bowl ever! The Giants took the lead 10-7. Then, with minutes left, Tom Brady and the Patriots scored what looked like the final go-ahead touchdown, the way they usually do it. But, Eli Manning led the Giants to a last-minute Super Bowl winning touchdown, right as we pulled into our driveway! It was one of the greatest Super Bowls ever, as a Giant upset knocked off an undefeated 18-0 team, going for perfection!
