Greatest game in MetLife stadium history?

BigBlue89 : 1/11/2018 3:42 pm
In the 8 seasons the stadium has been up, what is the greatest game the Giants played there so far?

A) Giants at Jets 12/24/11
Victor Cruz goes 99 yards and the Giants playoff run begins

B) Cowboys at Giants 1/1/12
Giants win the division over the hated Cowboys

C) Falcons at Giants 1/8/12
1st playoff game in MetLife history including multiple 4th down stops

D) Saints at Giants 12/9/12
Giants put up 52 in the most they've ever scored at MetLife

E) Cowboys at Giants 12/4/16
The Cowboys riding an 11 game winning streak ends against Big Blue.

F) Others?
The Falcon game

the 4th down sops were amazing. Still have my All-In towel hanging in my office.
That shithole has been around for 8 years already? Wow.

I'll go with B.
Falcons playoff game

For sure the ATL game

first time I remember the stadium being really loud for a game.
Falcons was definitely the loudest

I've ever heard the new stadium. Had a lot of fun that night. Such a dominant Defensive performance.

#2 for me would be the Jets game on Xmas Eve. Walking out of the stadium chanting "little brother" to all the Jets fans was extremely satisfying after all the trash Rex was talking
Falcons playoff game is my pick.

Should have been a shutout. Other than the ones you mentioned here are my Honorable mentions:

Redskins in 2012 - Eli throws game winning bomb to Cruz

Raves in 2016 - Eli throws game winning TD to Odell on 4th and 1. The crowd goes nuts once he gets the first - and then EXPLODES as soon as everyone realizes he's taking it to the house.

I was at the Falcons game. Best in-person football experience of my life. Super loud and energetic crowd.

I was also at the worst game in MetLife history the year before against the Eagles.

It's interesting seeing how angry and sad people are one day and how happy and elated they are a year later.

A) and C).
Both let us advance.
From perspective of getting in first, it's A.
From the perspective of the game itself, it has to be C and the almost total domination of a very good O, capped by 2 smackdowns on 4th and 1 or less, by a not overwhelmingly good D.

at both the Falcons and Cowboys games in 2012; Cowboys game was the only game I have been to at the new stadium that the section our seats are in never sat down for the 4 quarters. Falcons game was great and loud, but the Cowboys game just had a different feel to it. Might also be it was New Years Day, but everyone was amped up from the moment they stepped into the stadium.
I gotta vote for the

cowboys/Giants on 1/1/12.

When it was clear the Giants were gonna win. I have no quarter. Every cowboys fan I saw I just screamed “HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS”

And my personal favorite, me and my buddy were waiting for the train in Brooklyn to go home and we see a cowboys fan slink up the stairs. He’s sullen, he’s upset and he’s cold.


That was brought to you by PBR. I was 23.
jd311 : 1/11/2018 4:58 pm : link
win and in for sure.

The falcons playoff game was great, but i feel the stadium had crazy energy for the cowboys game
B, Cowboys

Nothing can be finer!!

I was at the game- stood 90% of the time. Crowd was insane.
The 99 yarder

Was a jet home game.

I think the Falcons playoff game certainly has to be it, if only for the fact that it started a SB run.

Of course the prior week Dallas game has to be a close second.

I would add the Ravens game of last year with 2 60 yard + td's from obj. The 49er game with donnel scoring, the skins game with the Cruz score to win were also up there.

Not as exciting, but the crown last year for the December Lions and Cowboys home games were some of the best ever, in terms of noise, standing, etc.

Don't worry they will probably tear it down in a few years and stick the bill to NJ taxpayers.

Giants are...

58-67 overall since Met-Life Stadium opened and 34-30 at home.

That's a .530 winning percentage at home. Hardly the "home-field advantage" I'm sure they envisioned...
What kind of comparison is that.  
redwhiteandbigblue : 1/11/2018 7:23 pm : link
That means they were 24-37 on the road during that period. Seems to me a .530 home winning percentage versus a road winning percentage of.393 IS a pretty significant home field advantage. What were you expecting? To win 90% at home when our overall winning percentage was only .464?

LOL. Yep. There it is. I remember this was the part of my life where everything started getting lame. No more Giants Stadium, my hot ex-girlfriend was completely gone, my big time Giant fan aunt had passed. I had to start looking for work out of college

Now here we are, even the lame shit is almost 10 years old. Sucks getting old.
I attended all of those games...

including the jets home game on Christmas eve. The Atlanta game was the best new stadium experience in my opinion. Tasted blood early, sustained energy. The new years day cowboys game would be second in my mind.

Nothing compares with the 2000 NFC championship game for me. I was too young for the 1987 NFC championship game.
Oh yeah the Atlanta game

Since then, other than the Ravens, Cowboy game and a couple games from 2016 that has been a place of misery
More bad than good

was a pretty good game.

Back and forth with both teams scoring in the final minutes.

I remember when Cruz scored, I pointed to the clock right after the score. Over a minute left........but defense came thru.

ATL gets consideration being a playoff game, and win.

I still have Justin Tuck's robo-call on my phone.

Tuck: "The Giants are all in. ARE YOU?"
