Super Bowl XLVI is Giants-Patriots rematch
In the late game, the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers took the game to overtime tied at a mere 17 points apiece. Halfway through the overtime period, the Giants won on a 31-yard field goal.
So the Harbaugh Super Bowl is not to be - brothers John Harbaugh (head coach of the Ravens) and Jim Harbaugh (head coach of the 49ers) will not be facing off in the championship.
Instead, it is a rematch of Super Bowl XLII in 2008, where the heavily-favored New England Patriots came into the game 18-0 and were upset by the New York Giants. The Giants were trailing 14-10 with less than three minutes to go when fairly green quarterback Eli Manning marched his team down the field to score a touchdown with 35 seconds left on the clock. The drive included an impossibly good catch by David Tyree. It was a remarkable win.
Now they'll face off again, the 16-2 New England Patriots versus the 12-7 New York Giants. The Pats should once again be favored, but maybe the Giants can pull off another remarkable upset.
