Some Giants\Super Bowl Tidbits:
  • *The Giants are 3-1 in Super Bowls. They beat Denver in Super Bowl XXI, Buffalo in Super Bowl XXV and New England. The Giants lost to Baltimore in Super Bowl XXXV. Their last two Super Bowl victories – 17 years apart – were by a total of four points (20-19 over Buffalo, and a three-point triumph vs. New England).
  • *The Giants won their sixth title game and seventh championship overall. They won NFL championship games in 1934, 1938 and 1956, plus the two Super Bowls. The Giants also won the NFL in 1927, before championship games were played.
  • *The Giants became the fifth Wild Card team to win the Super Bowl and the second in three years (the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XL). The Giants were the ninth Wild Card team to reach the Super Bowl since the 1970 merger and the sixth to do so since 1990. Wild Card teams are 5-4 in the Super Bowl and have won four of their last five games.
  • *The Giants are the second team to win the Super Bowl after winning three postseason games on the road to get there. The only previous team to accomplish that feat was the 2005 Steelers (who won Super Bowl XL).
  • *The No. 5 Giants are the lowest-seeded NFC team to win the Super Bowl since the NFL began seeding teams in 1990. The previous low was a second-seeded team. In the AFC, sixth-seeded Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl two years.
  • *The Giants are just the third team to win the Super Bowl after starting the season 0-2. The others were the 1993 Dallas Cowboys and the 2001 Patriots.
  • *The Giants were the visitors, which means the Super Bowl was their 11th consecutive road triumph in a single season (seven regular season, four postseason), extending their record. Put another way, the Giants won 11 consecutive games away from Giants Stadium.
  • *This was the third time in the Giants’ four Super Bowl appearances that they faced a team that they played in the regular season. They won all three of those games. The Super Bowl they lost was not a rematch.
  • *The Giants have 11 rookies on their active roster, a record for a Super Bowl winner. Several of those first-year players - including Aaron Ross, Steve Smith, Kevin Boss, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jay Alford and Zak DeOssie – made key contributions in the game.
  • *The Giants scored the game-winning points with only 35 seconds remaining on Eli Manning’s 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress. It was the second-latest come-from-behind touchdown to win a Super Bowl. Nineteen years ago, San Francisco’s Joe Montana threw a game-winning touchdown pass to John Taylor to beat Cincinnati, 20-16, in Super Bowl XXIII - with 34 seconds remaining.
  • *The Giants opened the game with a 15-play, 63-yard drive that consumed 9:59 and ended with Lawrence Tynes’ 32-yard field goal. The 9:59 the Giants owned the ball, including the kickoff return, was the longest drive in terms of time in Super Bowl history.
  • It was also the longest the Giants have held the ball on any possession in their 20-game season. The previous long was a drive that took 8:56 off the clock against Dallas on Nov. 11. That also resulted in a Tynes field goal, from 26 yards. The 15 plays tied for the second-most on a Giants drive this season. Their 95-yard drive against the Cowboys went 16 plays. They also had 15-play series vs. Washington on Dec. 16 and at Tampa Bay in a Wild Card Game on Jan. 6.
  • *The Giants won the coin toss, making this the first time they had won the toss and the game in the Super Bowl. Previously, they had lost the coin toss in the two Super Bowls they won and won the coin toss in the Super Bowl they lost. The team that has won the coin toss is 20-22 all-time in the Super Bowl.
  • *Each team had one offensive series in the first quarter. The two possessions in the opening period were a Super Bowl low.
  • *The Giants won their last two postseason games despite trailing at halftime (10-6 in Green Bay). Before the NFC Championship Game, they had lost their last four postseason games in which they were behind at halftime. They had not won a playoff game in which they faced a deficit after two quarters since Jan. 9, 1994, an NFC Wild Card victory over Minnesota.
  • *The Giants won for the second time this postseason when trailing after three quarters; they also did it at Dallas in the divisional round on Jan. 13. The Giants had entered last month having lost their four previous playoff games in which they were behind after three periods. They had not won a postseason game with a deficit entering the final quarter since the 1990 NFC Championship Game.
  • *The Giants’ defense was superb, holding the Patriots far below their season averages in several categories, including points (the Patriots averaged almost 37 a game in the regular season, but scored 14 in the Super Bowl); yards (New England averaged 411.3 yards a game, but totaled only 274 in the Super Bowl); rushing yards (the Pats averaged 115.6 in the regular season and 147 in their first two postseason games, but settled for only 45 against the Giants and did not have a run longer than nine yards). Tom Brady, who was sacked 24 times in 18 previous games (1.3 a game) was sacked five times in the Super Bowl.
  • *This was the first of the 42 Super Bowls in which the lead changed hands three times in the fourth quarter.

For me the game was almost boring until half way thru the 4thQ. When it started getting down to the wire and I was like ' HOLY =+\ '!!

The break away from the sack that Manning made was amazing! And the catch....unbeleivable for sure.

The played the same game they had been playing for the previous 10 games and more. I think the key was knocking Brady down as many times as they did, he was never able to get any rhythm going.

They're having a parade tomorrow and I bet it's gonna be a massive celebration.

Giants victory starts champagne party for '72 Dolphins

By ANDREW BAGNATO, AP Sports Writer
February 4, 2008

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- With the 1972 Miami Dolphins' legacy safe for at least another season, Don Shula took a moment Sunday night to congratulate the New England Patriots on a "great season."

But not the greatest season. That distinction still belongs to Shula's 17-0 Dolphins, who remain the NFL's only undefeated team after the Giants shocked New England 17-14 in the Super Bowl.

The Patriots had a great season, but it shows just how difficult it is to go undefeated," Shula said. "Our players and our fans feel that much more proud of our accomplishment."

The Giants were happy to do their part to protect the Dolphins' place in history.
