The Verdict

This is incredibly difficult to call. Both games were incredible. They included late game heroics, career-defining moments, historic catches, and lasting legacies. At the end of the day, however, the deciding factor has to be the fact that New England was expected to win the game. They were the favorites, and despite falling behind 28-3, and conjuring up a comeback for the ages, they still covered.

The Giants were the second biggest underdog in Super Bowl history and took down an 18-0 offensive juggernaut led by Brady at his apex.

When comparing the magic of the Giants to the machinery of Brady and Belichick, the magic squeaks ahead. Sunday night’s Super Bowl was one of the most incredible Super Bowls of all time– but it isn’t the best. That distinction remains with Super Bowl 42.

Verdict: Super Bowl 42 (barely)
