    GIANT UPSETS TO REMEMBER



    "Over the past 20 years, the Giants have pulled off several major upsets in
    the playoffs on their way to three Super Bowl titles. The Post’s Tim Bontemps
    takes a look back at their five greatest triumphs as underdogs over the past two
    decades:




    2007 NFC Championship Game:Giants 23, Packers 20, OT
    Jan. 20,
    2008 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis. 7 1/2 -point underdogs




    In below-zero temperatures, the two teams entered the fourth quarter with the
    Giants leading by three, 20-17. The Packers eventually got a field goal from
    Mason Crosby to tie the game, and the Giants’ Lawrence Tynes missed two kicks
    that would have given them the win. But Giants cornerback R.W. McQuarters
    intercepted a Favre pass on the second play of overtime and, three plays later,
    Tynes booted a 47-yarder to send the Giants to Super Bowl XLII.

    Super Bowl XLII: Giants 17, Patriots 14


    Feb. 3, 2008 at
    University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. 12-point underdogs




    Big Blue entered the game confident they could derail the Patriots’ hopes of
    completing a perfect season. The Giants hung with the Patriots throughout the
    game, because of their star-studded defensive line, and won it with a
    last-minute drive — including the incredible helmet catch by David Tyree — that
    was capped off by Eli Manning’s 13-yard touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress with
    35 seconds left and gave the Giants their third Super Bowl title and arguably
    the greatest win in the illustrious franchise’s history.




    1990 NFC Championship Game: Giants 15, 49ers 13
    Jan. 20, 1991 at
    Candlestick Park in San Francisco, Calif. 8-point underdogs




    During the regular season, the Giants lost to the 49ers, who were 14-2 and
    led by MVP Joe Montana. The Giants were heavy underdogs in the NFC title game,
    as the 49ers were trying to win their third straight Super Bowl. But the
    physical Giants defense kept the game close against the high-scoring 49ers, and
    eventually knocked Montana out of the game. After San Francisco running back
    Roger Craig fumbled with 2:36 remaining, Giants quarterback Jeff Hostetler drove
    Big Blue down the field, setting up kicker Matt Bahr’s 42-yard field goal as
    time-expired — his fifth of the game — to send the Giants to Super Bowl XXV to
    face Jim Kelly and the Bills.




    2007 NFC Divisional Playoff: Giants 21, Cowboys 17
    Jan. 13, 2008
    at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas 7 1/2 - point underdogs




    They had beaten the Giants twice during the regular season, and the No. 1
    seed in the NFC hadn’t lost its first playoff game in 20 years. But the Giants
    kept the game close, and took a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter on a
    1-yard touchdown by Brandon Jacobs. After the teams traded fruitless possessions
    for much of the fourth quarter, the Cowboys drove deep into Giants territory as
    the clock wound down — only to have Tony Romo throw into the end zone with nine
    seconds remaining and get picked off by Giants cornerback R.W. McQuarters to
    seal the win.




    Super Bowl XXV: Giants 20, Bills 19
    Jan. 27, 1991 at Tampa
    Stadium in Tampa, Fla. 6 1/2 -point underdogs




    The Giants headed into the Super Bowl with their backup quarterback, Jeff
    Hostetler, in the lineup after Phil Simms had injured his knee in a
    regular-season loss to Buffalo. But Giants coach Bill Parcells and defensive
    coordinator Bill Belichick devised a gameplan to run the ball and control the
    clock on offense, keeping the Bills’ high-powered no-huddle offense off the
    field, and then played a physical style on defense to try and slow down the
    Bills’ highly skilled receivers. The plan worked to perfection, as the Giants
    held the ball for more than 40 minutes and took a 20-19 lead on a short field
    goal by Matt Bahr midway through the fourth quarter. The Giants hung on, and
    wound up winning the game when Bills kicker Scott Norwood’s 47-yard field goal
    attempt famously missed wide-right."

    I got one for you.
    Jan 15th 2012 NFC Divisional Playoff---------
    At Lambeau Field Green Bay
    7 point Underdogs
    NY Giants 38 Green Bay Packers 17

    The Giants came out and played perfect FootBall on Offense, Defense and Special Teams from start to finish.
    Eli Manning threw for 375 yards and 3TDs with 0 INTs
    Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw combined for 147 Yards and scored a TD each. Lawerence Tynes added a 40 yard FG for NY.
    Green Bay could never really get it going as ARs was sacked 7 times and losing two fumbles. He threw 1 touchdown Pass to Jennings and had 2 Costly INTs. He led GB on a long drive that ended with a FG. He was knocked out of game on last sack and Matt Flynn came on and threw 1 TD pass to Driver after game was already well in hand for the Giants...[/quote]
    Well I was not to far off on this prediction....
    I would od been really close if they didn't get two td drives extended on bad calls...

    Should of been 37 -6

    [quote user="bansaw"]yes I know Webster picked him off in OT

    didnt RW get an INT late 4th, then fumble it, recovered by an OLineman that had no business being that far downfield, which then led to tying FG?

    gotta go to NFL.com and look at play by play

    It was only one series each in the OT. They won the Toss and got ball first. We were all upset cause Tynes already had two other chances to win the game in regulation and missed them both.
