Manningham: 'Eli in his own category'

INDIANAPOLIS -- It's a catch that will go down in Giants lore alongside the Super Bowl XLII reception by David Tyree. Mario Manningham hauled in a 38-yard pass while tiptoeing on the left sideline to begin the game-winning drive of Super Bowl XLVI. 

Manningham caught the ball and managed to get both feet down before being pushed out of bounds by Patrick Chung at midfield. 

"When [officials] were on the sideline [indicating good catch], I finally realized we might win this," Manningham said. 

"He had both feet down," Chung said. "Good throw, good catch." 

The man who made the throw -- Super Bowl XLVI MVP Eli Manning -- again won the respect of his teammates like Manningham for coming through in the clutch.

"He's a playmaker," Manningham said of Manning. "That's what he does. I'm putting Eli in his own category. A lot of quarterbacks don't talk, but you really never...

Gronkowski: 'I was in no pain at all'

After the Patriots' 21-17 loss in Super Bowl XLVI Sunday night, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski talked about his injured left ankle, saying that the high ankle sprain wasn't a factor.

"I was out there with the team. I was 100 percent," he said. "I was going full-go out there and doing everything I could."

Gronkowski appeared to be somewhat limited, catching just two balls for 26 yards while wearing what appeared to be significant support around the ankle. Still, he insisted after the loss that the ailment wasn't a factor.

"I was in no pain," Gronkowski said. "I was good to go today."

Gronkowski also touched on the final play of the game, in which he just missed catching Tom Brady's Hail Mary pass in the end zone as time ran out. The ball deflected off Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez and fell to the ground before Gronkowski could get his hands under it.

"It was a jump-ball...

Eli Manning named Super Bowl MVP

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLVI Sunday night after leading his team to 21-17 win over the Patriots. It is Manning's second Super Bowl MVP. For winning the award he received a Chevrolet Corvette convertible.

The New York QB went 30-for-40 for 296 yards and a touchdown. Manning highlighted his performance by marching the Giants down the field for a nine-play, 88-yard touchdown drive that was finished off by an Ahmad Bradshaw 6-yard TD run with 57 seconds remaining in the game.

Manning's counterpart, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, went 27-for-41, passing for two touchdowns along with 276 yards with an interception.

Heartbroken again: Giants win Super Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS -- Ahmad Bradshaw scored on 6-yard run up the middle with 57 seconds remaining as the Giants once again crushed the Super Bowl dreams of the Patriots, 21-17, in Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Patriots allowed Bradshaw to score to give Tom Brady time to march down the field for a chance to come back. The Patriots converted a fourth-and-16 but could not get the game-winning score as a Hail Mary in the end zone fell incomplete. 

Brady fired touchdown passes to Danny Woodhead and Aaron Herandez as the Patriots led, 17-15, heading into the fourth quarter. The Patriots fell short of finishing off a year dedicated to Myra Kraft. It would've been the Pats' fourth Super Bowl title in the last 11 seasons. The Giants won their fourth Super Bowl title. 

Brady finished 27-of-41 for 276 yards and two touchdowns with an interception, while Manning was 30-of-40 for 296 yards and a touchdown. Hakeem Nicks caught nine passes for 105...

Faulk inactive, Vollmer active for Super Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS -- Running back Kevin Faulk will not be active for Sunday's Super Bowl while offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer is active for the first time since breaking his right foot against the Eagles on Nov. 27. Also active and returning to action is wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who was inactive for the AFC championship in the wake of his father's funeral. 

The full list of Patriots inactives for Super Bowl XLVI includes QB Ryan Mallett, Faulk, RB Shane Vereen, LB Gary Guyton, OL Donald Thomas, OL Nick McDonald and DL Ron Brace. 

This the fifth trip to the Super Bowl for Faulk but the first time he has been scratched. Running back Stevan Ridley was inactive for the AFC championship after fumbling in the season finale against the Bills and against the Broncos in the AFC divisional playoff. 

Brace is not the only former Boston College defensive star inactive for the biggest game of the season. The...
