Four years later, the Giants were back in the NFC Championship Game against the opponent they will play this coming Sunday.
Going into the game, the 49ers were an eight-point favorite.
The Giants were 14-3 heading into the game while the 49ers were 15-2. It was the classic heavyweight matchup with a trip to Super Bowl XXV on the line to play the Buffalo Bills.
This game featured a lot of field goals from Matt Bahr and Mike Cofer, as it was 6-6 at halftime.
In the third quarter, Joe Montana threw a 61-yard touchdown pass to John Taylor to put help ahead the 49ers, 13-6.
The Giants defense clamped down and prevented any further scoring from San Francisco.
Bahr made three straight field goals, two of which were in the fourth quarter, including the game-winner from 42 yards out to knock off the 49ers and moved the Giants to Super Bowl XXV.
On January 27, 1991 (my seventh birthday), the Giants, as a seven-point underdogs, knocked off the Bills, 20-19, to win their second Super Bowl.
