I remember the game very well- cold, windy....and loud.

The 'lousy football' curse was removed!

Giants 17, Redskins 0

Made the Redskins one dimensional and nobody ran against that Giants defense, Redskins ran for 40 yards in the game. The biggest difference maker in that game was Sean Landeta. He averaged about 43 yards per punt that day, and punted great into the wind also. I thought he was the biggest difference maker in that game.
Was that the game..

I was in section 117 row 27 seats 11&12.My brother and I froze our butts off, but did not care. We both lost our voices and stayed long after the game was over watching all the paper swirling around. Just an awesome game.

Was there as well. I was 17 and it was the first and only time I ever went to a game with my older sister who was in college at the time. We were screaming DEEEEEEXTERRRRRR!!!!at the top of our lungs, jumping around trying to keep warm and just in a general state of euphoria.....good times.
