Missing Rings: The 1944 New York Football Giants
“New York opened their 1944 regular season with an unremarkable win at Fenway Park against the Boston Yanks. The Giants offense was far from a well-oiled machine as the young, old and slightly-damaged parts had yet to fully integrate. Herber struggled as he was still playing himself into shape. He completed just one pass for 12 yards, was intercepted twice and fumbled once, the latter being returned for Boston’s only touchdown. The Giants defense was its formidable self and the special teams made clutch plays. The defense recorded a safety and Cope blocked a punt that was recovered for a touchdown by Victor Carroll. Strong made both his field goals in the 22-10 victory.”

The Giants survived a sluggish start including a safety as the Cards Larry Wilson blocked a Don Chandler punt and it went out of the end zone.
Trailing 2-0 the in the first quarter Y.A. Tittle found Del Shofner for a 44 yard touchdown pass to give the Giants a 7-2 lead. In the third quarter Alex Webster rushed for a touchdown and San Huff returned a fumble for a touchdown to increase the Giants lead to 21-2.
Backup Cardinals QB Ralph Guglielmi found Billy Stacy for a 80 yard touchdown pass to curb the lead to 21-9 in the fourth quarter. However the Giants’ defense responded as Dick Lynch had three interceptions on the day.
10-8-1967 Giants 27 Saints 21
“Wednesday marked the 47th anniversary of one of the wildest games in New Orleans Saints history, a 27-21 loss to the New York Giants at Yankee Stadium. The Oct. 8, 1967 game wasn't as significant as the fight after it.
Saints linebacker Steve Stonebreaker accused Giants center Greg Larson of a late hit on Saints wide receiver Tom Hall on the penultimate play of the game and instigated a bench-clearing brawl after the clock expired. During the melee, fans poured on to the field, and owner John Mecom injured his hand while throwing a punch at Giants linebacker Freeman White. The brawl spilled into the stands and the exit tunnels at the stadium...”
10-8-1972 Giants 45 Saints 21
The Giants led 31-0 at halftime as they kept the Saints winless. Charlie Evans rushed for 87 yards and two first half touchdowns as well catching a 10 yard pass from Norm Snead for the first score of the game. The Giants intercepted Archie Manning four times (Crist, Flowers, Lockhart, Williams).
10-8-1978 Cowboys 24 Giants 3
Tony Hill caught two touchdown passes from Roger Stsubach and the Giants managed only 142 yards in total offense in the loss to the Cowboys. Giants QB’s Jerry Golsteyn, Joe Pisarcik, and Randy Dean were a combined 6-20 on passing attempts.

MONTANA, 49ERS RIDDLE GIANTS
10-8-1989 Eagles 21 Giants 19
“In a game of delirious, delicious knocks where little came easy, the New York Giants jumped on the Philadelphia Eagles early here today. The Giants led by 10-0 early in the second quarter, by 13-7 at halftime and by 16-7 early in the fourth quarter.
But then peculiar things began to happen: The Eagles' defense stiffened, Randall Cunningham broke loose with a piercing running and passing display and Philadelphia finished its turnabout by producing the game's only turnover with two minutes left. The result was an eye-rubbing 21-19 victory for the Eagles before 65,688 at Veterans Stadium.
The Giants slipped to 4-1; Philadelphia improved to 3-2.
10-8-1995 Giants 27 Cardinals 21 OT
PRO FOOTBALL;By Any Other Shape or Size, Armstead Is a True Linebacker
“If Armstead is indeed undersized, what do you do with him? If he is the fastest linebacker on the team, with 4.5-second speed for 40 yards, you use him in the nickel defense. If you play the San Francisco 49ers and their short-passing offense, you use him in the base defense. If you play the Cardinals, whose offense is more traditional, you use him in all passing situations.
That is why Armstead, who will turn 25 later this month, was on the field Sunday in overtime when the Cardinals faced third-down-and-3 from their 45-yard line. That is why he was able to intercept Dave Krieg's pass and return it 58 yards for the winning touchdown. That is why the ball he intercepted is being shipped to his home in Dallas, a gem for his trophy case.”
