The New York Giants entered the NFL Playoffs as the NFC Wild Card, and underdogs, but will be celebrating the 15th anniversary of a Super Bowl win this season
In the 2007 NFL season, the New York Football Giants capped off one of the most improbable Super Bowl runs in NFL history.
This famous season had many hardships and trials, but the most memorable of which was the upset of the undefeated New England Patriots.
Each game of that season played a part in the magical run that was 2007, and this team grew from each game they played. New York finished the season 10-6, and at the time became the fifth wild card team to go on to win the Super Bowl.
The odds of the Giants winning it all were stacked against them from the very beginning, up until the very end, but New York persevered and got it done.
New York Giants football embodied the spirit of New York and New Jersey that season in never backing down from any challenge or anyone no matter the size or strength, and playing physical and gritty for all 60 minutes.
“Stomp you out” was the motto of that season, and having that mindset allowed them to understand what it took to take down the likes of New England, the number one seed Cowboys, and the Packers in frozen Lambeau. No matter the situation, this Giants team would do whatever it took to stomp you out.
This Super Bowl gave the New York Giants their first championship since the 1990 season and would be the final season of Michael Strahan’s storied NFL career.
For this Cinderella, the glass slipper fit time and time again, but it took many moments for it to finally do so.
