Giants get flipped
Following consecutive disappointing seasons, veteran Ottis Anderson (pictured) took over as the team’s starting running back, finishing with 1,023 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns to lead the Giants (12-4) to the postseason.
Divisional: In their first game against the Los Angeles Rams, the Giants fell in overtime on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Jim Everett to Flipper Anderson. New York led, 13-7, in the fourth quarter, but Mike Lansford drilled a pair of field goals, the game-tying boot coming with 3:01 left.
