New York Giants: 1986*
17-2 overall record
Won franchise's first Super Bowl
Outscored opponents 105-23 in the postseason
After dropping their season-opener in Dallas, the Giants would lose just one more game during the rest of the '86 season. In the playoffs, the Giants walloped Joe Montana and the 49ers, 49-3, before shutting out Washington in the NFC Championship Game. In Super Bowl XXI, New York trailed 10-9 at intermission before outscoring the Broncos 30-10 in the second half en route to a 39-20 victory. Game MVP Phil Simms enjoyed an historic outing, completing a record 88% of his pass attempts for 268 yards and three touchdowns. He completed all 10 of his attempts in the second half while throwing touchdown passes to Mark Bavaro and Phil McConkey.
The Giants' dominant defense, a unit that included four Pro Bowlers in defensive ends Jim Burt, Leonard Marshall, Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor (that year's Defensive Player of the Year) intercepted John Elway three times. New York's defense also came up with a pivotal goal-line stand during the first half that included Taylor's crucial tackle of Elway just short of the goal line. The Broncos also had no answers as it related to stopping Giants linebacker Carl Banks, who recorded 10 tackles that included four behind the line of scrimmage.
