How Many Super Bowls Did Eli Manning Win?

Throughout his NFL career, Eli Manning won two super bowls the most famous one being Super Bowl XLII in the 2008 season against the New England Patriots. Manning’s other Superbowl came in 2012 twelve in which Eli Manning and the Giants took down the Patriots for a second time.

Super Bowl XLII Eli Manning’s First Ring

Super Bowl XLII is widely regarded as the greatest Superbowl of all time. One of the main reasons this Superbowl was so exciting was due to the lopsided nature of the two teams.

Entering the game the New England Patriots had a perfect season. 16-0 in the regular season and 2-0 in the postseason. Beating the Giants would give them the first 19-0 season in NFL history.

The Giants on the other hand limped into the playoffs with a 10-6 record as a wildcard team.

By the time the Super Bowl came around the Patriots were twelve-point favourites to win the game.

The Super Bowl itself was a defensive battle until it reached the fourth quarter. The Giants needed an 83-yard touchdown drive in order to take the lead with only two and a half minutes on the clock.

On a long third-down play Eli Manning was trapped in the pocket but managed to get away and throw the ball to David Tyree resulting in the greatest catch in Super Bowl history.

The Giants went on to score on that drive and stop Tom Brady and Patriots for Eli Manning’s first Super Bowl win.

Super Bowl XLVI Eli Manning’s Second Ring

Funny enough the second time Eli Manning went to the Super Bowl he was also facing the Patriots.

This year the underdog storyline was back again. Though the Patriots weren’t the same powerhouse as 2008 this team went a solid 13-3 in the regular season and of course were so far undefeated in the playoffs.

The Giants this year were even worse than the previous Superbowl season finishing the regular season with a 9-7 record. This record earned the second wild-card spot AKA the last position to get into the playoffs at the time.

This game was also fairly low scoring overall, it started with the giants getting off to a nine-point lead.

Brady and the Patriots then responded scoring seventeen straight points of their own. Though after this point it was all Giants.

The Giant’s defense managed to shut out Tom Brady and the Patriots for the entire fourth quarter.

Eli Manning then finished off the game with an 88-yard touchdown drive socred with only fifty-seven seconds remaining in the game.

This marked Eli Mannings’s second Super Bowl ring and second time beating Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.

Who Has More Superbowls Eli Or Peyton?

Throughout their NFL careers, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning both won two Superbowls.

The bigger difference throughout these players’ careers is the number of times they made it to the Superbowl.

Eli Manning went to the Superbowl two times, both of which he walked away as the winner. Peyton Manning went to four Super Bowls in his career winning two and losing two.

This begs the question is it better to win each Super Bowl you are in or get to more Super Bowls throughout your career?

Additionally, Eli Manning took home two Super Bowl MVPs while Peyton only got one.

That all being said Peyton Manning’s statistics and winning percentage in the regular season are much better than Eli’s throughout their careers.
