INDIANAPOLIS — The Giants are kings once again.
As Patriots QB Tom Brady‘s final, arching pass fell incomplete in the end zone while time expired, Lucas Oil Stadium morphed into uproar and bedlam.
Super Bowl XLVI is in the books, a 21-17 Giants victory, and while Brady lives for these moments — the ball in his hands on the world’s biggest stage — this night belongs to Eli Manning, who’s the MVP in the biggest game for a second time.
People once joked about the idea that New York’s quarterback was an elite player.
The jokes are over. The questions are answered. Eli — and his Giants — are elite.
And fitting champions of the National Football League.
