Super Bowl moment No. 24: Lightning strikes twice for Eli Manning
As we count down to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif., it’s time to look back on the magical and memorable moments in the 49 previous Super Bowls. FOX Sports senior NFL writer Alex Marvez has ranked the 50 greatest moments in the big game’s big history, and every weekday from now until Feb. 7 we’ll unveil the latest addition to our countdown. Today, we look back at moment No. 24, when Eli Manning did it to the Patriots again in Super Bowl XLVI.
Four years removed from his storied fourth-down completion to David Tyree in Super Bowl XLII, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning burnt the New England Patriots with the long ball once again in this Super Bowl rematch.
Manning’s 38-yard sideline completion to wide receiver Mario Manningham helped spark a Giants drive that ended with the game-winning touchdown.
Here are highlights from Super Bowl XLVI.
Final score: New York Giants 21, New England 17
