Dramatic Super Bowl win for New York Giants

New York Giants 21 New England Patriots 17

The New York Giants won Super Bowl XLVI with a dramatic win over the New England Patriots in Indianapolis on Sunday.

The Patriots overcame an early deficit to storm back to lead 17-9 early in the second half as Tom Brady found Aaron Hernandez for the touchdown.

New York fought back to within two points as it went to the wire, though, and the defining moment came in bizarre circumstances as Ahmad Bradshaw scored an accidental touchdown which was ultimately enough to win the Giants their fourth Super Bowl trophy.
