Super Bowl XLVI is the first Super Bowl in which both starting quarterbacks have won a Super Bowl MVP award. Giants quarterback ELI MANNING passed for 255 yards and two touchdowns – including the game-winning 13-yarder to PLAXICO BURRESS with 35 seconds remaining – in Super Bowl XLII and was named the game’s MVP. Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY has been named Super Bowl MVP twice (XXXVI, XXXVIII) and is one of only four players in NFL history to win the award multiple times, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers JOE MONTANA (XVI, XIX, XXIV), TERRY BRADSHAW (XIII, XIV) and BART STARR (I, II). During the 2011 regular season, Brady passed for 5,235 yards and Manning had 4,933 passing yards. The duo combined for 10,168 passing yards, which would be the most ever by opposing starting quarterbacks in a Super Bowl. Brady and Manning combined for 8,142 passing yards in 2007, which would rank fourth all-time. New York has won seven NFL championships (1927, 1934, 1938, 1956, 1986, 1990, 2007)...
