Super Bowl XLVI MVP: Eli Manning Wins Award For Second Time

There were lots of directions the voters could have gone in determining the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLVI, but in the end, they gave it to a guy that put the New York Giants in the best position to beat the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Quarterback Eli Manning was named the game's MVP, and he deserved it after completing 30-of-40 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown. More importantly, he had no turnovers on the evening, and put the Giants in position to get their fourth Super Bowl victory.

Manning, who was also named the MVP of Super Bowl XLII, is now one of only five players to win multiple Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Awards. The other four are Bart Starr (Super Bowls I and II), Terry Bradshaw (Super Bowls XIII and XIV), Joe Montana (Super Bowls XVI, XIX, and XXIV) and the quarterback Manning defeated on Sunday night, Tom Brady (Super Bowls XXXVI and XXXVIII).

Congratulations to Eli Manning on winning the award and all the spoils that come with it. And Congratulations to the New York Football Giants on an outstanding season.
