Mario Manningham Becomes Latest Giants Receiver To Make A Great Catch In The Super Bowl [VIDEO}
Okay, so maybe Mario Manningham’s fourth quarter reception in Super Bowl XLVI wasn’t as good as David Tyree’s catch four years earlier, but that doesn’t make it any less spectacular.
Manningham, who has been the forgotten man in the New York Giants’ receiving corps, which features Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, hauled in a 38-yard pass from Eli Manning on the left sideline and somehow managed to keep his feet in bounds before falling to the ground with less than four minutes left in Sunday’s Super Bowl win over the new England Patriots.
It turned out to be an 88-yard game-winning drive for the Giants, who went on to win, 21-17.
This is one of those special plays that will live on highlight films until the end of time.
