So much for perfection.

The Giants defeated the Patriots 17-14 in one of the greatest upsets in NFL history. All credit to the Giants defense, which held the mighty Patriots offense to only two touchdowns and kept the pressure on Tom Brady all night.

Still, the Pats nearly won the game, as Brady drove them down the field and hit Randy Moss for a touchdown to take a 14-10 lead. However, Eli Manning out-Brady-ed Brady and threw a touchdown pass to Plexico Burress with 35 seconds left. This wasn't enough time for even Brady to pull off another miracle.

I'm incredibly disappointed. I really didn't think the New York had a serious chance of beating the Pats. The perfect season and another Super Bowl title is gone. The shoe that the Patriots wore in their first Super Bowl win against the Rams is truly on the other foot. The Giants used a ferocious defense and a young quarterback who avoided mistakes and did a good job directing his team to beat the heavily favored Patriots.

Well, Mercury Morris will sleep well tonight.

I won't rub any salt in the wounds, except to say that David Tyree is on a slightly higher plane of god-hood than Endy Chavez by New York fans.

I couldn't believe that play. I think even if I weren't a Giants fan, I would say that was the best SB game ever.
