Paige Spiranac had a nail-biting experience while witnessing the 2012 Super Bowl:
The 2012 Super Bowl was indeed an amazing one, it came down to the wire with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots facing off against the New York Giants led by Eli Manning. This game cemented Eli’s legacy earned him his second NFL Super Bowl MVP and made him the only quarterback to go 2-0 against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
Down 17-15 with just under 4 minutes to go in the game, the Giants were on their own 12-yard line, Eli threw a dagger to wideout Mario Manningham who fetched around 38 yards, and the catch in itself was a beauty. Mario was able to keep his feet in bounds while catching the ball and this set the Giants up for their game-winning touchdown drive.
The 2012 season in its entirety was difficult for the Giants as they had to overcome quite a few hurdles that season and despite that they won the Super Bowl, Paige Spiranac put it perfectly, “They(Giants) limped into the playoffs and they were a 12-point underdog. We all know what happened with 2:39 seconds left,” referring to the catch by Manningham.
In addition to this, they were going against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in their prime, the Patriots were building a dynasty, and beating that team was nothing short of an achievement in itself. That story is indeed a true underdog story and is one that we cannot forget for decades to come!
