This retrospective NFL Americas Game DVD features the New York Giants who hadn't won an NFL championship in 30 years before Bill Parcells' led them to two Super Bowl victories in five years. In 1986 the Giants were loaded. On defense, Lawrence Taylor, considered by many to be the best Outside Linebacker ever to play the game, won the NFL MVP Award. He and Middle Linebacker, Harry Carson, both future Hall of Famers, led an overwhelming defense. On offense in these NFL Americas Game NY Giants DVD, the Giants were led by Tight End Mark Bavaro, 1500 yard rusher, Joe Morris and Quarterback Phil Simms, a good quarterback who had yet to prove he could be great. In Super Bowl XXI, he did just that with a precision passing game that is unmatched, as the Giants defeated the Broncos 39-20. Four years later, injuries threatened to ruin the Giants' 1990 season. With 2 weeks to go in the regular season, Simms was lost for the remainder of the year and it would be up to an untested, backup, Jeff Hostetler, to lead the team into the playoffs. Although he had thrown barely more than 100 passes in the previous 6 seasons, Hostetler exceeded all expectations, winning 5 straight starts including a victory over the Bills in Super Bowl XXV, one of the most exciting games in Super Bowl history.
Buy this installment of NFL Americas Game and witness the NY Giants finish two awesome seasons in five years to take professional football top honors after 30 years of Super Bowl drought.
