New York Giants 17
New England Patriots 14
No team had done it before, 16-0. Then again, no team had ever put up the video game-like numbers the 2007 Patriots did.
Heading into this game, it was a match-up of David vs. Goliath, as the Giants had had to win back-to-back road playoff games to get here.
It was a contrast in style. The Pats could put up points lightning-fast, while the Giants were more methodical.
The game was low scoring, as the Giants were able to pressure Brady and keep the Pats offense at bay. Offensively, they made their biggest splash on a nearly ten minute drive that lead to a field goal.
Flash forward to the fourth quarter.
The Patriots have just taken a 14-10 lead with just over 2 minutes left.
It's 2nd and 5, Giants have the ball when Asante Samuel drops what would have been the game-ending interception.
On the next play with Eli Manning in the grasp of the defender, he flung one down the field towards David Tyree, who made a circus catch by using the side of his helmet.
A few plays later ,Plaxico Burress grabbed the game-winner in earning the Giants the victory.
So "what if" Asante Samuel had made the pick. Game over, right?
"What if" they would have whistled Manning in the grasp? Probably game over, right?
"What if" Tyree drops it?
Two plays, with three "what if" scenarios, in one of the best Super Bowls of all time.
