Plenty of story lines will center on the last undefeated team the Giants took down, but if Giants fans are searching for optimism, one should think back to 1998, when a Giants team mired in mediocrity took down the 13-0 Denver Broncos (who would go on to win the Super Bowl that year). Graham connects with Amani Toomer for a game-winner, and with a 20-16 victory over Elway's Broncos, the Giants move on to finish the season 8-8. Let's not forget that this Broncos team was stacked: John Elway, Terrell Davis, and Shannon Sharpe, to name a few.
This Giants team is different, and many people think that it is still playoff caliber. However, the 6-5 record indicates a team with some problems. Yes, I know what you all are thinking. Eli Manning, interception machine, is no Kent Graham. If anything, our defense will have to carry us to victory.
With a couple of big plays on defense (maybe at least one three-and-out this week), and maybe, just maybe, if Eli can step up and fill some Graham-sized shoes, we can get it done on Sunday.
And you better believe Fewell's got those blitz packages dialed up.
