    I really can't say much more than what SBGuru just said. As a Giants fan this was the best year that I can remember because the Giants were the best team all year going 14-2 and dominating through the playoffs. This Super Bowl had the closest half-time score, 10-9, and then the Giants ran off 24 unanswered points in the second half and eventually routing the Broncos 39-20. This was the first championship for the Giants since the 50's and their first Super Bowl Championship in the Franchise's history. This also marked the first time that the Super Bowl MVP, Phil Simms, would say "You just won the Super Bowl, where are you going?", "I'm going to Disney World/Land".

On The Giants 1st possession Giants QB Phil Simms, led The Giants right down the field for a TD on 9 plays for 78 yards. Simms was 6-6 for 69 yards on the drive and found, backup TE, Zeke Mowatt for a 6 yard TD reception and a 7-3 G... Read more

    I knew Denver was going to lose, plus I wanted Chicago to repeat.
