This week I'm going have to travel back across the pond to talk about one of the biggest upsets ever in Super Bowl history.

Yes, I stayed up until into early hours of Sunday morning to watch the one of the biggest sporting extravaganzas in the world, and this year I was not disappointed.

That might be an understatement as I'd rate it as one of the best Super Bowls ever, and I've been watching them for 30 years.

In the end the New York Giants did the unthinkable and beat one of the best teams ever, the New England Patriots.

The Patriot juggernaught entered the game undefeated, winning all 16 regular season games and both their play-off games to reach the Supper Bowl.

They were the most prolific offensive team ever, scoring more points in one season than anyone in the history of the NFL.

So going into the game, no-one gave the Giants a chance.

However they proved all the doubters wrong - emphatically!

Although they only won the game by a score of 17-14, their defence stifled a potent New England passing attack, led by quarterback Tom Brady.

The Giants put so much pressure on Brady he had little time to find his receivers. I've watched a lot of Patriots' games this year, and never had I seen Brady look so inept.

Although I would have liked to see the game's MVP go to a player on the defence, it was the Giants' quarterback Eli Manning, who got the award.

He received it because he led the Giants on a late drive down the field which resulted in a touchdown being scored with 35 seconds left on the clock.

What made his story even greater was the fact that his brother Peyton, had also received the Super Bowl MVP award last year for leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 29-17 victory against the Chicago Bears.
