Most fans remember the story. With a minute and thirteen seconds left in the game, Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw the ball to the middle of the field where receiver David Tyree made a leaping catch with the ball pinned against his own helmet. Four plays later, Manning hit an open Plaxico Burress in the corner of the end zone with just 35 seconds remaining. Giants win 17-14.

New England must feel like they have unfinished business left over from the 2007 season. Of course, it’s highly unlikely they get another shot at a perfect 19-0 season, but quarterback Tom Brady needs one more Super Bowl ring for four. A fourth ring would tie him with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana for the most by a quarterback.

Giants QB Eli Manning was sacked 28 times this year, the second most in his career. He was hit countless more times. Yet he keeps getting up and keep firing.
This is one underrated aspect of Manning. But it wasn’t lost on Tom Brady. He couldn’t stop gushing about Manning’s toughness.

No one will ever forget Giants’ WR David Tyree‘s amazing catch vs New England in Super Bowl XLII.
Tyree only managed to play another year after his moment in the spotlight. In fact, that was his last reception as a pro. Since then, he’s faded into the background.
