The NFL rewarded the Colts for replacing the old Hoosier Dome with a state-of-the-art stadium by giving Indianapolis its first Super Bowl in 2012. The venue, which has twice hosted the NCAA’s Final Four, bore witness to Eli Manning’s second NFL championship at the expense of Tom Brady and the Patriots in a 21-17 victory.
