Super Bowl: New York Giants' super memories -- 1991 championship

New, comments

Looking back at the 1991 Super Bowl championship -- one of the four won by the New York Giants

The second Super Bowl title in the history of the New York Giants came on Jan. 27, 1991, a 20-19 victory over the Buffalo Bills in super Bowl XXV. The game will forever be remembered as the "wide right" Super Bowl as Buffalo's Scott Norwood missed the potential game-winning 47-yard field goal as time expired.

In this game, the Giants did what no one thought they could do -- limit the explosive Buffalo offense. The Giants held the ball for an astounding 40 minutes, 33 seconds with Ottis Anderson earning MVP honors after gaining 102 yards on 24 bruising carries.


What are your favorite memories from this one, Giants' fans?

The game was also memorable for this -- Whitney Houston's incredible rendition of the National Anthem.
