New York Giants' quarterback Eli Manning and defensive end Justin Tuck (L) celebrate during the team's ticker tape victory parade through the Canyon of Heroes along Broadway in honor of their win in the Super Bowl, in New York February 7, 2012.

In the beginning we have the award predictions and actual winners followed by my team and playoff predictions and the actual outcomes.
