Down by two points with 3:46 left in the Super Bowl, the Giants had the ball on their own 11-yard line. Despite Vince Wilfork driving an offensive lineman into the backfield, Manning was able to launch the ball 40 yards down the sideline to Mario Manningham, who was double covered.
The result was a mind-boggling catch by Manningham which overshadowed a perfectly thrown pass by Manning. No written recount of the catch could do the play justice. Both Manningham and Manning were dialed in to a moment of greatness that begs comparison to David Tyree's immortal catch in the Giants' last Super Bowl.
This play ultimately wrapped the game up, as the Giants were able to milk the clock before scoring a touchdown.
Manning appropriately finished off an amazing 2011-2012 campaign with one of the best executed drives in Super Bowl history.
After winning his second Super Bowl MVP, the conversation will no longer be whether or not Eli is elite, but rather, is he Hall of Fame worthy?
