It was 1998 and I remember it so well. It was December 13th, 1998 and a 1:00 kickoff at the Meadowlands. The Denver Broncos were all the rage then and favored by 13 points.
Terrell Davis went for 147 and a touchdown on 28 carries but the Giants shocked the world with Kent Graham under center. Today, the 13-0 Panthers are in New York and this game is the talk of the NFL.
Cam Newton is being called the dominant force in professional football. The Giants are a 4.5 underdog, so it’s not quite the juggernaut that rolled into town some 17 years ago when I was on my way home from Cincinnati.
This will be a legendary Sunday to remember a three hour affair in the Land of the Sopranos. I can’t wait to see what unfolds. The drama will be high.
