If you’re an NY Giants fan and bored during quarantine (like many of us are), here are some Giants games to rewatch.
Giants vs. Patriots, Super Bowl XLVI, 2012
The second ring for the Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin duo, sees the Giants once again defeat the Patriots in an epic game. This game proved that future Hall of Famer Eli Manning truly is Tom Brady’s kryptonite. A catch that will forever be legendary helped propel the New York Giants to a fourth Super Bowl trophy (and no, not The Helmet Catch’). An incredible throw from Manning and a phenomenal catch from Mario Manningham kept a drive alive that would ultimately result in the game winning touchdown. Manning ended the game with 296 yards passing, one passing touchdown, and a Super Bowl MVP.
Giants vs. Patriots, Super Bowl XLII, 2008
The New York Giants were huge underdogs going into this game, as Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck led the New England Patriots to an undefeated season. However, arguably one of the greatest teams of all time was not enough to defeat the Giants. A thrilling game that involved one of the greatest plays in the history of football: The Helmet Catch, Manning to Tyree. The city of New York will never forget that epic moment. Manning threw for 255 yards, 2 touchdowns, one interception, and won Super Bowl MVP of that game. The Patriots team was looking to go 19-0, but ultimately couldn’t win the big game, and finished 18-1… This was and forever will be one of the greatest upsets in Super Bowl history.
Giants vs. Broncos, Week 7, 2005
Trailing 23-10 going into the fourth quarter, a young Eli Manning stepped up and orchestrated a magnificent fourth quarter comeback to defeat the Broncos. The Giants defense also stood strong and forced two turnovers, instrumental to the victory. With 3:24 left to go in the game, Manning marched the ball 81 yards downfield. With eight seconds left to go in the game, Manning threw a two yard pass to Amani Toomer to win the game for the Giants.
Giants vs. Buccaneers, Week 3, 2019
Welcome to the NFL Daniel Jones. In his first career start, trailing 28-10 going into halftime, Jones and the Giants squad held the Bucs to just three second half points, while putting up 22 points in the second half. Star running back Saquon Barkley went down early in the game and would not return. However, that did not deter the Giants, they kept their heads up and kept playing. Potential star young LB Ryan Connelly caught a crucial interception that helped the Giants win the game. Jones threw for 336 yards and 2 touchdowns, while rushing for another two touchdowns (one of them being the game winner).
**ATTENTION: STAY AWAY FROM DECEMBER 24, 2010** No Giants fan needs to relieve that game.
