For the first time in the modern era, the Giants (14-2) won the Super Bowl. On the way, Big Blue had one of the most dominating playoff runs in NFL history.

Divisional: The Giants opened the playoffs with a 49-3 rout of the 49ers. Joe Morris rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns, building on a career-best 1,516 yards rushing in the regular season.

NFC championship: Phil Simms had just 90 yards passing, Joe Morris didn’t crack the 100-yard mark, but the Redskins still had no chance. Washington was shut out, 17-0, by the Giants.

Super Bowl XXI: Parcells and his all-star coaching staff — Bill Belichick was the team’s defensive coordinator, and Romeo Crennel was a special teams coach — took down the Broncos, 39-20. Simms had one of the best games of his career, finishing 22-for-25 with 268 yards and three touchdowns.
