Statistically speaking, David Tyree wasn't that great of a receiver.
In fact, up until the 2007 season, Tyree, a sixth-round pick in the 2003 NFL draft, was little more than a special teams player (which did earn him a spot in the 2005 Pro Bowl).
He never had more than 19 catches in a single season as a receiver, and during the 2007 season, he had just four receptions for 35 yards and no touchdowns.
However, Giants fans everywhere will remember this play.
With 1:15 left in the fourth quarter, the Giants were in a 3rd-and-5 situation on their 44-yard line. Eli Manning eluded a sack and threw a 32-yard pass to Tyree. Tyree then caught the ball using both his hands but had it swiped by Rodney Harrison.
Despite that, he secured possession of the football by pressing the football into his helmet (now known to many simply as "the helmet catch") and was brought down at the Patriots' 24-yard line. This catch helped set up for the game-winning touchdown thrown to Plaxico Burress.
Had Tyree not caught this ball, the outcome of this game could have been a whole lot different.
