I think this picture sums up perfectly both Tom Brady's blunder and the New England Patriots' performance in Super Bowl XLVI.
Yes, I could have talked about how Eli Manning performed yet another fourth-quarter comeback against the New England Patriots, but I thought this play helped demonstrate how intimidating the New York Giants defense actually was.
On their very first possession, the Patriots started at their own 6. Brady attempted to throw a pass down the middle on first down.
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck had other plans though, and Brady threw the football in his own end zone.
However, he threw it too far from a receiver and was penalized for intentional grounding. What's worse is that because he threw in his own end zone, the result was a safety.
Giants would score the first points of the game and controlled the majority of the first quarter, eventually leading to their second Super Bowl victory in four years.
