NEW YORK GIANTS TAKE THE SUPERBOWL!

DID YOUR FAVORITE TEAM WIN?

The New York Giants won the American football Super Bowl in a dramatic comeback victory that denied their opponents, the New England Patriots, a place in the sporting history books.

New England had gone into yesterday’s Arizona showpiece hoping to complete an unbeaten season and stake a claim to be the greatest side in the history of the sport.

However, the underdogs from New York shattered the Patriots with a 17-14 victory as quarterback Eli Manning found Plaxico Burress with a touchdown pass with 35 seconds left.

That play had followed a spectacular leaping catch by David Tyree who had held on to the ball under fierce pressure from the Patriots’ defence to keep possession for his side where a fumble would have effectively handed victory to New England.
