The Giants have a great history as we all know, but in the following days we will share with you what Sports Illustrated ranks as the 7 Greatest Moments in pictures.
#7: Facing the two-time defending Super Bowl champion 49ers on the road in the NFC Championship game — a team the Giants had already lost to during the regular season by a score of 7-3 on a Monday Night in San Francisco– the New York defense knocked Joe Montana out of the game for the second time in a playoff game. The Giants scored the game-winning field goal as time elapsed after Lawrence Taylor forced the only turnover late in the fourth quarter as Steve Young and Roger Craig tried to run out the clock. The triumph is most remembered for kicker Matt Bahr yelling, “This is for the troops!” as the team celebrated its 15-13 victory. The first gulf war had just begun. The Giants went on to beat the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV, which remains the only one-point win in Super Bowl history, memorable for the wide right field goal by Scott Norwood to close the game, and the great defensive game plan drawn up by defensive coordinator Bill Belichick.
