New York Giants Flashback: Ahmad Bradshaw’s Big Run


The past decade brought a lot of joy to New York Giants fans. The best quarterback in franchise history. The best running back in franchise history. Five playoff appearances. And two dramatic Super Bowl wins. So much happened that made this decade a special one for Giants fans. So each week, I wanted to take a little time look back on some of the most memorable moments from the last ten years.

Here’s the first that came to mind:

Ahmad Bradshaw’s 88-yard Touchdown Run

The Giants entered the game with a 9-5 record. They expected snow, and they were facing a pesky Buffalo squad. With a win they would be in the NFL postseason. This was a big day in Giants history.

Trailing 14-0 early, the Giants roared back–taking 24-21 in the fourth quarter with just under 7 minutes left. Deep in their own territory in need of a spark–it was the rookie Ahmad Bradshaw who ripped off an 88-yard touchdown run in one of the most memorable rushes in franchise history. Bradshaw ran for 151 yards that day and the Giants would go on to win the game 38-21.

With the win, the Giants won their franchise record seventh straight road game and clinched their third straight playoff berth. And from there? They won four road games, the final being their Super Bowl 42 against the undefeated New England Patriots. That Super Bowl of course is remembered for many things but especially for David Tyree’s helmet pinning catch.
