Crushed in Super Bowl XXXV

After a loss to the Lions in Week 12 dropped the Giants to 7-4, head coach Jim Fassel famously guaranteed his team would make the playoffs. Big Blue (12-4) responded with five straight wins to claim the NFC East.

Divisional: The Giants jumped out to a 17-0 lead on a pair of big plays — a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Ron Dixon, and a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown by Jason Sehorn — and never looked back in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.

NFC Championship: A 41-0 romp of Minnesota in the NFC Championship game, to set up a meeting with the Ravens in the Super Bowl. 

Super Bowl XXXV: Baltimore’s stingy defense picked off Kerry Collins four times, and the Giants were crushed 34-7.
