Eli Manning led another Super Bowl winning drive.  Just 3 years after Manning's heroics knocked off the New England in Super Bowl XLII, the Giants quarterback did it again leading a drive that ended in a late Ahmad Bradshaw touchdown run giving New York a 21-17 victory over the Patriots.

The Giants had to do it in comeback fashion.  Tom Brady hit Aaron Hernandez on a 12 yard touchdown strike early in the third quarter for a 17-9 Patriots edge.  New York countered scoring the final 12 points including Bradshaw's run for the Super Bowl Title.

The victory is also huge for a former Hawkeye.  Defensive back Tyler Sash left Iowa early to enter the NFL draft and was selected by the Giants in the 6th round.  Sash did not record any stats in New York's Super Bowl victory.

It is Sash's rookie season.
