The 50 Greatest Plays in New York Giants Football History
In a series that explores the logic-defying comebacks and tough losses, the dramatic interceptions, fumbles, game-winning field goals, and touchdowns that shape a fan's greatest memories of their beloved team, this book does not disappoint as the ultimate collector's item for Giants fans. It chronicles the most famous moments in the New York Giants' football history, including the shocking upset of Super Bowl XLII, Pat Summerall's 49-yard field goal in the snow in 1958, Phil Simms' fourth down and 17 strike against the Vikings in 1986, defeating the 49ers on the final play in 1991, and Lawrence Taylor's 97-yard interception return to defeat the Lions on Thanksgiving. The descriptions of each play are accompanied with game information and quotes from participants, players, and observers with firsthand accounts.
