Despite everyone looking ahead to the Super Bowl, that doesn’t mean we can’t still focus on the incredible NY Giants season that the team just recorded. Not many people expected the Giants to be as successful as they were this year. However, despite all the doubts and criticisms they faced, NY pushed its way into the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

There are too many plays to count that truly defined what this season meant to both the team itself and the fans, but we think these five in particular not only provided the best memories, but spoke volumes on how the G-Men were able to be so successful:

5. Kayvon Thibodeaux’s game-winning strip sack vs. the Ravens in Week 6:

This is easily one of our favorite plays from this entire season, as not only did it showcase the superstar potential that Kayvon Thibodeaux has, but is also delivered the Giants their fifth win in six games as they took down a very talented Ravens squad.

The Giants were coming off the heels of a massive victory over the Green Bay Packers, a team who many thought would be playoff contenders at that point in the season. To win these two games back to back, while also improving their record to 5-1 on the season was amazing to see.

Out of all the games the Giants played early on, this seems like the one that showcased the team could go up against any of the top squads in the league and put up a pretty darn good fight. While NY would go into a bit of a slump three weeks later, the momentum the Giants had early on in the fall was truly special.

As for Thibodeaux, it was just his fourth game in the league, and he already made a massive impact play with his strip sack. Not only was this Thibodeau’x first sack, but it was a game-winning play that gave New York tons of momentum heading into the rest of the season.
