Super Bowl XLVI was a collection of remarkable and intriguing moments, and here are the best. 

Many have hit out that Sunday's classic was good, but not great. Surely, we had a good play or two, but not many. I beg to differ. 

I will be the first to rain on parades and contribute much-needed cynicism for the masses, but this game simply doesn't deserve such measures. 

From start to finish, I was captivated. 

Bone-headed blunders lead to emotional distress. There were hard hits and amazing catches throughout. When you consider the next few plays that we have ranked and broken down, it is any wonder why anyone would consider this game anything less than wall-to-wall with highlights. 

Here we take you down memory lane. Some of you may have been all too near blackout buzzed on Sunday evening. Here we catch you up on all the important plays and moments from what I consider a classic match. 

Tom Coughlin got over on the great Bill Belichick, yet again. Eli Manning won his second Super Bowl MVP, eclipsing his big brother Peyton by one.

Let's see how it all went down and rank them in order of importance. Yes, we may see that Mario Manningham catch at some point in this series of videos.
