Phil was on target for the G-Men. Big blue win first Super Bowl!
Super Bowl XXI turned out to be a surprise for many, not so much as to who the winning team would be, but how the game started and finished with a surprise MVP. The first quarter exploded with 17 points as the multi talented John Elway moved the ball at will against the Giants defense, his scrambling abilities helped avoid the L.T. pass rush. Yet Giants QB Phil Simms turned out to be the hero of the game as the second half the Giants offense went with play action and screens with draws that controlled the clock and the game. This method of play opened the passing game up for Phil as he was as accurate as ever finishing 22-for-25 with three touchdown passes and yes he was the much deserved game MVP! As for Elway his magic and talent was stopped in the second half by the Giants talented defense, as Denver managed only 27 yards rushing the entire game! The final score was Giants 39-20. Overall a good super bowl with one of the best performances ever from a QB, it was Phil's special day he brightened with perfection!
