Standout Moments in New York Giants History
The New York Giants have been a force to be reckoned with for the most part and as a result have delivered some epic performances over the years.
The First Super Bowl Triumph - The New York Giants had won four NFL titles before they hadn’t even come close to getting their hands on the Super Bowl post the NFL/AFL merger. The Giants decided to do something about it and reached NFL’s showpiece game for the first time in the 1986 season. On January 25, 1987, they took on the Denver Broncos at the iconic Rose Bowl. The Giants ended the jinx to win the game 39-20.
The Move That Changed Everything - The New York Giants signed Lawrence Taylor in the 1981 NFL Draft and that move changed everything for the Giants. Taylor was a force of nature. He stayed with the Giants for thirteen years and during that time won two Super Bowls and became a ten time Pro Bowl pick. Taylor’s influence however went beyond everything he did for the Giants. Many people think it was Taylor’s style of play that eventually led to how offenses prepare and play these days.
The Mother of all Upsets - The New York Giants pulled off one of the most miraculous triumphs by winning Super Bowl XLII. That win is regarded by almost everyone as one of the greatest upsets in sports history.
The Giants had finished second in the NFC East and went 4-4 over their last eight games to finish the season 10-6. That was just about good enough to push them over the line and into the playoffs. They beat the Bucs, the Cowboys and the Packers in the postseason to set up a meeting with the 18-0 Patriots in Super Bowl XLII at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Patriots were overwhelming favorites but the Giants had other ideas. Eli Manning was the star of the show as he delivered a vintage performance and the Giants won 17-14. It was a stunning upset pulled off by a stunning football team.
