Found this on YouTube.
Agree or disagree with the order of some of these? Regardless, as Giants fans we have witnessed some great moments. We are truly fortunate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYCNsTF4V4E

thanks for posting. Great reliving all those events.
I take issue with the Plax lob being #1, but whatever - it's fun watching.
Really enjoyed it.
and the Manningham catch #2.
Ditto ^^^. The Tyree catch was the most incredible play & catch I've ever seen, period, even disregarding the circumstances. Everyone is entitled to their opinion & all, but I can't see how anyone could put any post-season Giants play above it.
We can argue the order, but overall it's great to re-live all of those. Any one of those top fives would be enough for most fan bases, but we get to enjoy them all.
but I can see the guy's logic. The job wasn't done until the TD.
But I thought the order was questionable.
The Sehorn INT, voted by fans as the greatest play in Giants Stadium history, buried in the 20s.
the 3rd and 11 pass to Steve Smith just before the Burress TD was huge and should be an honorable mention.
Hard to argue w/ the plays chosen overall (I'd have included Chase's INT & Alford's sack of Brady), but I agree the order was a good bit off. Should've been higher: Sehorn INT, Reasons fake punt, Hail Mary (just for how incredibly infrequently they're completed in any game), Craig fumble, both Montana knockouts.
in Dallas to go on to Greenbay in 2007. I believe that was McQuarters.
The look on Tony Romos face and me running around the house yelling will probably be one of my favorite playoff moments.
Toomer's breakaway TD was the play that swung the momentum IMO.
And Ingram's 3rd and 13 definitely gets overlooked. What a play!
Thanks for posting.
And then though its not a "moment", 2007 against Dallas at the close of the 1st half, Dallas took almost 10 minutes and drive the field for a TD and would be in the drivers seat come the 2nd half. Instead Eli took the ball and stuck in the endzone in about 45 seconds. I thought that it was the turning point of Eli's career, he made a statement that Eli was elite.
But I enjoyed the video. Thanks
not particularly "plays", I'll have to go with my #1 as the 1990 NFC Championship game in SF. BY FAR the most intense football game I've ever seen. My #2 is Eli's pass to MM in the 2012 SB. A perfect pass & catch.
but putting Plax as number 1 is uber stupidity..
This should probably be pinned at the top throughout the offseason. One underrated highlight was Jerry Jones on the sideline.
I'd have worked in Steve Smith's 3rd and 11
but I got to tell ya, even close to 30 years later, that Marshall hit on Montana still makes me cringe with pain.
Thanks. And BB '56, I get your point about the Plax TD, but hell, it sealed the game and the season. May not have been spectacular, but symbolically it meant the world to the team, Eli and Giants fans. IMO.
I personally believe that was the loudest Giants Stadium has ever been. I was at the game it was intense. Crowd was fired up, Hells Bells blaring and Dixon returned opening kickoff for a TD. Incredible
The Mark Ingram play happened during the first drive of the second half of SB 25, Giants down by a FG, not a desperate situation by any means, and it's in the top ten. That can only be because of the athleticism involved in the play. The Eli-to-Tyree play happened on the last drive, third and long, no room for error, AND it had every bit the element of athleticism (more so, really, because it required miracle play by two players). If that's not the number one play, then the Ingram play cannot be in the top ten. Imo
The manningham catch is greater than tyree catch. Eli just tossed the ball and prayed something would happen. The manningham catch was an alltime precision throw and unreal body control by manningham.
on the MM catch. Every time I watch it, my jaw drops. How anyone could have the confidence to drop that ball in that spot so perfectly is beyond me.
vs. GB in the NFC Champ run of '07. Great catch, not in the SB but still, very good.
I think looking at these plays that the first SB run is seriously underrepresented, but to be honest I have to go back to watch plays to remember what is missing. That is natural. 25 years from now many plays from these recent runs will be forgotten as well.
It wasn't an actual play, but it marked the end to years of frustrations
it's greatest moments not greatest plays. Let's be honest, we only started actually thinking that NY would win that game once Plax was catching the lob from Manning. I mean ok fine we started thinking shit was real when Eli hit Tyree but the second Plax scored it was on like donkey kong.
It's still tough to score a TD in the red zone. It looked easy but it wasn't. Ok maybe it was.
Whatever...we can debate about it but there is no doubt that the biggest and most incredible moment in NFL history over the past 40 years or so is NYG knocking off the Pats in supe 42. The second Plax caught that TD that shit was official. The play somewhat of a formally...kind of crazy to say that...but the moment was anything but.
the link takes you to 1987 (game film) LT highlights against philly and there are a bunch more on the right of the page. Bunch of games... LT

Anytime some fool minimizes AP's time with the Giants I refer to the way he owned that screen play in Lambeau. Sniffed it out and singlehandedly blew it to pieces. Friggin huge play.
I am just so happy I just watched that. Thank you for posting it.
That play enabled the Giants to complete two bone crushing drives back to back.
One at the end of the first half, and the other at the start of the second half, of which the Ingram play is part of with a crucial first down.
If you don't remember, I hope you do, it placed the K-Gun on ice for ~90 minutes real time. Everyone knew you had to keep them off the field, and the Giants did.
Just look at the TOP for that game (40-20, if memory serves), and you can see how the running Giants fought he K-Gun to a game winning field goal attempt.
I think the 4th and 17 pass against Minnesota that changed the entire 1986 season and got us our first Super Bowl in eons should be included. It was the end of our being in the wilderness for so very long.
That deflected off Bavaro's hands deserves mention too.
