The defense was a beast pitching a shutout in the first half. Eli was throwing the rock with ease. We had a great vertical offense with Eli.
I’ve seen so many great regular season games… the comeback in 86 @ Candlestick MNF, the comeback in Philly, dismantling the Ravens and Pittsburg on the road and so many more! But this may be my favorite of all time. Enjoy! Giants @ Patriots - ( New Window )

Bingo. When you add everything up. Stakes. Degree of difficulty and what that win led to, no other regular season game comes close. We lose that game, no playoffs. No division title. No Nicks doing his thing in that postseason. No Eli heroics. No Mario. No 99 yarder vs Cruz. The world ends, that night. Down 12 (?) with minutes left, that fucker was over. Then Eli went wild. And then Lou had his moment.
The Panthers game for home field advantage/#1 seed.
That was one of the greatest most enjoyable days of my life. Too many reasons to even list, it was just one of those perfect days that was capped by going to that game. I paid like 80 bucks for 3 seats in the lower tier (didn't have season tix yet) from a guy in a bar that wanted to give them to me for less, but I felt bad and gave him an extra 20.
and that TD happened right in front of us.....what a great game.
later that night my son, who couldn't speak yet, stood in front of the big screen TV jumping up and down and screaming. The TV wasn't even on. My wife figured out that he was just imitating me from earlier in the day when that play occurred.
is Giants 13, Cowboys 10, 1981. And not because I was there.
This game was the start of the Giants being relevant again after almost 20 years in the wilderness. Click on the link below and watch rookie Lawrence Taylor start his domination. Giants Cowboys 1981 YouTube - ( New Window )
