Super Bowl 2012 MVP: Eli Manning Wins MVP Honors

Eli Manning had a fantastic game in the Super Bowl, completing 75% of his passes -- a 30 out of 40 clip -- and passing for a touchdown and no interceptions in the New York Giants 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots. His more memorable moments included an absolutely brilliant pass to Mario Manningham late in the fourth quarter which set up the eventual game winning touchdown from Ahmad Bradshaw. Eli finished the game with 296 yards.

This is Eli's second Super Bowl MVP award; he won the 2008 award when his Giants defeated the at the time undefeated Patriots 17-14. In that game, he posted two touchdowns and 255 yards alongside an interception.
