This Blu-ray is awesome if you are a Giants fan - you can relive all the glory of Eli Manning and the Giants impressive run to a Super Bowl Championship (and the NFC Title game against San Fran was awesome). However, if you're like me, this Blu-ray might remind you of how much money you lost betting on the Patriots and is probably best avoided (especially if your wife is around - you don't need her remembering why you she made you sleep on the couch -do you?).
The New York Giants’ 2011 season was a thrilling roller-coaster ride which ended on the highest possible note. With Eli Manning engineering fourth-quarter comebacks and Jason Pierre-Paul leading a stifling defense, everything clicked for the Giants as they entered the home stretch of the regular season. To make the playoffs, Big Blue had to win its final two games, against the cross-town rival New York Jets and divisional foe Dallas Cowboys. And they did just that! Once in the postseason, the Giants went on one of the most memorable playoff runs in NFL history, concluding with the exhilarating 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Now, Vivendi Entertainment, the National Football League (NFL) and NFL Films have teamed to help Giants’ fans recapture the thrills of the postseason run with the release of New York Giants: Road to XLVI on DVD and Blu-Ray™.
In this must-have multi-disk set, fans can relive the Giants’ remarkable championship run with the original network broadcasts of all four thrilling playoff victories. Follow the G-Men as they flew past the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card round, dethroned the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round, went cross- country to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in overtime to win the NFC Championship, and staged another unforgettable comeback to beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
