My Top 8 Best Games In Coughlin/Eli Era


#8 2004, Jan. 2

NYG 28 DAL 24 - Tiki ends Eli's nightmarish first season (9 games) with a storybook ending to a record setting night for him. Tiki scores on a 3 yard run with 11 seconds to go to help give Eli his first win as a pro. Eli contributes 3 TD passes to go along with Tiki's Giants record 1,518 yards rushing for the season. Tiki also led the league with yards from scrimmage that year.

NYG 21 PIT 14 - Two days after my birthday I got to go to this awesome heaveyweight fight of a game in Pit where the Giants D sacked Big Ben 4 (?) times as Draft Class of '04's Eli beats Ben with a fourth quarter TD pass to seal the game. This game had everything; big plays, big hits, goaline stands, and LB Harrisons snap over the head of Pit's punter and out of the end zone for a safety stands out for me.

NYG 17 DAL 10 -  In a defensive struggle for the top spot in the NFC East, Antonio Pierce's fumble recovery and 12 yard strut into the endzone to the roar of the Meadowlands crowd is what I remember most from this one. This game helped propel TC and Eli to their first division title.

NYG 30 PHI 24 - The Eagles dominated this game after giving up a 37 yard TD pass from Eli to Amani on the Giants first drive. The Eagles entered the 4th quarter with a 24-7 lead before the Giants erupt for 23 points in the 4th quarter and OT, capped by Eli's 31 yard "walk-off" TD pass to Eagle killer Plax.

NYG 36 WAS 0

Giants honor "The Duke's" passing by crushing Skins at home behind Tiki's 206 yards rushing and 1 TD. I recall something to the effect of Tiki taking himself out of the game after scoring that late TD and giving the ball to Wellington's grandson, despite being mere yards from the Giants single game rushing record.

NYG 21 Dal 17 - In the first ever playoff meeting between the big rivals, Giants beating the 13-3 Cowgirls was a great day. The Giants D-line outlasting and outperforming the Dal O-line, as well as RW's last second INT is memorable for me in this one. Also that quick drive right before the half to tie it when Eli hit Amani for his second TD of the first half was oh so huge. Loved this game.

NYG 23 GB 20

Soooo much to remember from this game. Both on the field play and off. Like  Strahan's speech to his teamates; "The past is the past", etc., or TC's face, or 0 degrees with -23 windchill. How about the INT-turned-fumble by RW? But who can forget Eli to Plax to the tune of 11 catches, 151 yards, or 27 demolishing Woodson on that first run. My favorite Giants game ever. But....
