Giants’ supporters have many reasons to celebrate since their favorite team won the Super Bowl cup. According to Reuters, the Sunday game which was held on the Lucas Oil Stadium ended with a 21-17 victory over the Patriots.
This is the second time New England meets New York in the Super Bowl. Even though they were hoping to erase the memory of the defeat they suffered four years ago, the Patriots were once again trampled by the Giants on Sunday.
New York is grateful to its dynamic quarterback, Eli Manning, who managed to make up for the eight-point deficit in the last quarter. The touchdown that Ahmad Bradshaw scored during the last minute of the game was the last effort that the Giants had to make before they could take the cup home.
Giants’ coach, Tom Coughlin told the press that he was very proud to see his football players fighting for the same purpose. He further added that winning the Super Bowl title is one of the greatest feelings in professional sports. Coughlin, 65, is the oldest National Football League coach to win a Super Bowl.
This victory came unexpectedly for the Giants because the four-game skid they endured at the end of the regular season put them in danger of missing the playoffs. New York City and Mayor Michael Bloomberg are preparing to celebrate the victory of the Giants through a ticker tape parade which will be hosted on Tuesday.
The Patriots were very disappointed with the results of the Sunday game. They stated after the competition that this loss is hard to accept because the Super Bowl is one of the most important football competitions in America. New England head coach Bill Belichick declared that his players did a good job, so he cannot blame them for losing the game.
70,000 supporters were present at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis to watch the live competition. Studies show that an equally large number of viewers chose to watch the Super Bowl finale from their homes, thus, recording the highest television audience on Sunday.
