2008 Super Bowl Recap

If you missed this big game, you missed a game for the ages! Find out how the Giants pulled off the biggest shock of the decade!

Recap

No doubt, coming intoSuper Bowl XLII, the New York Giants were the underdogs. All season long, the New England Patriots were pretty much invincible while they were dominating opponents. Behind superstars Tom Brady and Randy Moss, the Patriots came into the Super Bowl undefeated. But that didn't stop the New York Giants from being confident. The week before the game, Plaxico Burress, the Giants' star receiver, made a bold statement by predicting they would beat Patriots 23-17. While most people mocked Burress' prediction, it was Plaxico who got the final laugh.

New England's offense wasn't looking like it's normal self, as the Giants' defense[/KWLINK] limited them to just seven points after the first three quarters. A Brady to Moss touchdown in the fourth quarter, gave New England a 14-10 lead. Eli Manning came back with an incredible drive down the stretch, which was capped off ironically with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Burress with 32 seconds to play. The Giants won the game 17-14.

    I think maybe its because someone did something in the game they're not allowed to do, or they cheated, or if someone like hit someone else or shoved them
