Giant mementos from Super moment

One of the most memorable moments in Super Bowl history is preserved at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The helmets worn by New York Giants’ teammates Eli Manning and David Tyree in their team’s Super Bowl XLII win over the New England Patriots arrived at the Hall of Fame in March 2009.

Late in the fourth quarter of that the game, Manning somehow escaped the grasp of Patriots defenders to throw the ball downfield to Tyree. The Giants wide receiver made a spectacular catch as he managed to control the ball that was pinned to his helmet. The 32-yard completion that came on 3rd-and-5 kept the Giants’ game-winning drive alive. Four plays later, Manning connected with Plaxico Burress for the winning score.

New York won 17-14 to hand the Patriots their only loss of the year. Manning, the game’s Most Valuable Player, completed 19 of 34 passes with 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Tyree had three catches for 43 yards and scored the Giants first touchdown of the game, a 5-yard reception early in the fourth quarter.
