Played in Indianapolis, Indiana at Lucas Oil Stadium in front of 68,658 people who attended the game, the Patriots would lose to the Giants by a final score of 21-17.

Countdown to 2020 Miami: Super Bowl XLII

One of the all-time classics on the Road to Super Bowl 54 in Miami, as the New England Patriots face off against the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

Giants Escape New England

Played in front of over 71,000 fans at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the New England Patriots and New York Giants would show down in what would go on to become an instant classic in Super Bowl history, with the Giants walking away with the Super Bowl victory, 17-14.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning, most notable at that point for being a member of the Manning family, with old brother Peyton being a previous Super Bowl champion and league MVP, would walk away with his own ring and Super Bowl MVP honors in 2008. Manning would complete 19 of his 34 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns, but the play that would be most remembered would be a 32-yard completion to wide receive David Tyree, who would pin the ball against his helmet.

Super Bowl XLII would not only become an instant classic, but it would also go down in infamy for the Patriots, who would fall victim to one of the biggest upsets in NFL history. The Patriots, the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to complete an undefeated regular season, were sitting at 18-0 heading into the Super Bowl, with the Giants being massive underdogs against one of the more prolific offenses in NFL history.

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks would perform the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl XLII, which was aired on FOX Sports to a total of 97.5 million viewers. The cost of a 30-second commercial spot in 2008 was up to $2.7 million, and halftime was performed by the late legend Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

Countdown to 2020 Miami: Super Bowl XXI

With week 3 on the Road to Super Bowl 54 in Miami officially underway, we’re taking it back to Super Bowl XXI from sunny southern California, a matchup between the New York Giants and Denver Broncos.

Simms Leads Giants to Super Bowl Title

Played in front of over 100,000 fans for the first time in Super Bowl history, the New York Giants would score a then-record 30 points in the second half of Super Bowl XXI, eventually leading ‘Big Blue’ to a 39-20 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Giants quarterback Phil Simms would put on one of the better Super Bowl performances for a QB to date in 1987, scrambling for three touchdowns in Super Bowl XXI, an effort that would lead the Giants to their first Super Bowl victory and MVP honors for Simms.

Super Bowl XXI was broadcast on CBS in 1987, with a total of 87.2 million fans tuning in. The cost of a 30-second commercial continued to rise, now up to $600,000, with announcers Pat Summerall and John Madden both handling broadcasting duties. The National Anthem for Super Bowl XXI was sung by Willie Davis, and the halftime show was a “Salute to Hollywood’s 100th Anniversary,” featuring the Southern California high school drill team and dancers.
