Giants vs Patriots, quarter the 4th

Posted: Sunday, February 03, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Coke had a good commercial with the parade balloons and Charlie Brown getting the Coke.

OK y'all, it's 15 minutes to a championship.

Manning gets a big play to his tight end who breaks a tackle and goes for 20 more yards after the catch. Now the Giants need to take advantage.

Smith finally makes a play after dropping a couple of balls early. NY is now 1st and 10 from the 12 yard line. After a hard run from Bradshaw, Manning hits David Tyree over the middle for the TD! Wooooooooooooooooooooo!

That was just what the Giants needed. Not only did they get a go ahead score, but the defense got a rest.

It's 10-7 Giants with 11 minutes to play.

Maroney gets a good return, but it's called back for holding and NE starts from the 11 yard line.

Now the question the Giants have what it takes?

They do on this drive. NY gets bit time pressure on Brady and force two incomplete throws on the drive. NE must punt on 4th down with a little over 9 minutes to play.

The Etrade commercials could be classics. Creepy clowns anyone?

The Giants need to take time off the clock here, but they also need to be looking to score.

Oh that was a great job by Manning to get away from the pressure, but then he missed Burris out on the sideline. Burris cut off his run. NE gets a break on that play and then holds on 3rd down to force a punt with less than 8 minutes to play.

There's the stat...28 drives to win or tie engineered by Tom Brady. I never said he wasn't good.

NE is finally getting into something of a rhythm on offense. The Giants have played so well on defense, but now they aren't getting the same kind of pressure on Brady and he's starting to pick apart the secondary.

We're under 4 minutes now and the Patriots are inside the 20 and threatening to score. Brady misses Moss in the endzone on 1st and goal. Brady misses Welker on 2nd and goal. The defender fell down and Brady hit Moss for the go ahead score.

It's 14-10 with 2:42 to play.

Well, does Eli Manning have it in him to be the hero and lead the Giants to a game winning TD? He'll have to go 83 yards in 2:39 with 3 times out.

Manning throws a couple of incomplete passes, and now it's 3rd and 10. Toomer gets the catch but he doesn't roll forward for the first down. So it's 4th and 1 for the game right here.

Jacobs falls forward for a first down with 1:28 to play.

Manning escapes a sure sack and throws a pass over the middle, caught by Tyree. The ball was high and Tyree went up and got it in his hands and then held on as he went to the ground. Now it's 1st down at the 24 with less than a minute and the Giants in position to win.

NE tackles Manning for no gain and the Giants use their final time out. It's 2nd down from the 24 with :51 to play.

Manning is almost intercepted, then it's almost complete before the ball hits the ground and now it's 3rd down with :45 to play.

Manning throws complete to Smith for the first down, and Smith gets out of bounds with :39 to play.

Manning throws the go ahead score to Burris with :35 to play!!!!!!! The defender bit hard on the double move and Burris was by himself in the endzone and it's 17-14!!!!

NE starts from the 26 with :29 seconds with 3 times out and only needing a field goal to tie.

Brady almost throws a pick downfield on 1st down. It's :25 seconds to go.

Brady is sacked!!!! NE takes time out with :19 to play.

It's incomplete downfield on 3rd down and now it's 4th down with :10 to play!!!

And it's incomplete downfield again on 4th down!!!!!

The Giants are Champions!!!!!

The Giants are Champions!!!!!

The Giants are Champions!!!!!

The Giants are Champions!!!!!

    Very few thoght they could a matter of fact, most gave them no chance throughout the playoffs...and all they did was win...

    Great defensive effort tonight and Eli no longer has to be Peyton's little brother...

    Great recaps Travis...

  1. Travis says:

    Starr: Wooooooooooooooo!!!

    V: I love that they ruined the perfect season. It's completely meaningless right now since they lost the Super Bowl.

    Katherine: We scared the cats!

  1. Anndi says:

    Winning streaks are never meaningless Travis, that can't be taken from them.

    But it was a good game til the end. My Chicklet's first Superbowl, she never watched before.

    Now I have to go crush her and tell her her team lost.

  1. Dana says:

    Between you and Bond, I'm having trouble figuring out if you two are HAPPY if the Giants won or not? Can you enlighten me as to how you feel?

  1. Travis says:

    Roger: You said it!

    Ann: Sometimes our teams come up short. Mine was 4-12.

    Dana: I am ecstatic!
