Take a look at each in-depth breakdown and then vote for your favorite nuttiest play from Super Bowl XLVI at the bottom of the right column.
The situation: The Patriots face a first-and-10 at their own 6-yard line on their first offensive play of the game.
Things got a bit nutty when ...Tom Brady, while under immense pressure from the Giants' Justin Tuck, heaves the ball to wide open space deep down the field. Brady is called for intentional grounding, and because he threw the ball while in the end zone, the Giants earned the game's first points in unconventional fashion.
A costly drop
Things got a bit nutty when ... Brady's deep throw was dropped by normally sure-handed receiver Wes Welker. A completion would have at the very least put the Patriots into position for a field goal. Instead, New England punted the ball two plays later, and then saw New York drive 88 yards for the winning score.
Hail Mary not answered
The situation: Down 21-17 with five seconds left and the ball at midfield, the Patriots have an opportunity for one last play to earn victory.
Things got a bit nutty when ... Brady's desperation heave lands incomplete in the end zone, but it appeared as if the Patriots might have had a chance to complete the play.
To score, or not to score
Things got a bit nutty when ... The Patriots appear to concede the score to the Giants, but Ahmad Bradshaw -- rather than kneel down short of the goal line and help kill to the clock to prevent another Patriots possession -- looks like he'll take a knee, but instead backs into the end zone. It was a bizarre scene. However, it only helped add to the drama of one of the greatest Super Bowls ever played.
