Leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII, NFL Network asked the fans to vote in a poll to determine the greatest Super Bowl of All-Time. And just prior to kickoff on Sunday night, the votes were tallied and the winner was announced: Super Bowl XLII between the New York Giants and New England Patriots stood tall and was named the greatest of all-time.
"The fans have spoken," David Tyree posted via Facebook. "Humbled."
For Giants fans, this poll will not come as much of a surprise. Anyone who lived through Super Bowl XLII will forever proclaim it be the greatest game ever played, as well as the biggest upset of all-time. For the wildcard Giants to knock off the then 18-0 Patriots … it's just something that will only grow more and more impressive over time.
Coincidentally, today marks the sixth anniversary of that tremendous upset. So what better way to celebrate it than having it names as the single greatest Super Bowl in NFL history?
