The NY Giants have a long history of making some pretty incredible plays in both the playoffs and the regular season. There are several moments that Big Blue nation will never forget.

While New York has had some pretty incredible regular season plays, we're going to focus on the playoffs in this piece. The Giants have four Super Bowl titles to their name, don't forget about that. With that said, we take a look at five postseason plays that are above the rest:

5. Corey Webster's interception to help send the Giants to Super Bowl XLII

In one of the most exciting games in Giants history, fans were able to witness an absolutely bonkers play. Very few NFC Championship games have gone into overtime. However, this time around, the Giants and Packers found themselves in a close game that would go down to the wire.

Despite this, overtime wouldn't last very long at all. In fact, on the second play of the Packers' opening drive, with 14:13 remaining, all momentum would be shifted in the Giants' favor. On this play, Brett Favre would drop back and looked for star receiver Donald Driver for an easy first down. Instead, Favre threw a pass that was far too inside. As a result, Corey Webster would easily intercept the ball and go down at the Packers' 34-yard line.

Then, after three plays, the Giants would send Lawrence Tynes onto the field with the game in his hands. The rest is history as we all know how the rest of the postseason would go for the Giants. There may not have been a more exhilarating way for this game to come to an end.

Webster may never have made a Pro Bowl or All-Pro team. Real fans, though, know that he's one of the best corners the Giants have ever seen. His incredible clutch gene and all-around great play made him a key piece of both Super Bowl teams in the 2000s.
