The Patriots and Giants 2007 Super Bowl matchup proved to be a thriller, going down to the wire and ending as an instant classic. The victory went in favor of the Giants, 17-14, but both teams carried plenty of excitement. 

The most famous highlight of the game came on a Giant 3rd-and-5 with 1:15 remaining in the game. Wide receiver David Tyree made an incredible one-handed catch, pinning the ball to his helmet and holding on to get the first down, which prolonged the drive. The Giants then went on to score what would be the winning touchdown. 

The closeness of the game paired with Tyree’s play—which will go down as one of the best in Super Bowl history—will be hard to top excitement-wise, but that’s not to say this year's game doesn’t have the potential.
