The 1990 New York Giants secured the franchise's second Lombardi Trophy by defeating the Buffalo Bills, 20-19, in Super Bowl XXV. That thrilling finish was just the ending to a season full of incredible moments.

JERSEY PRIDE

No one bleeds bluer than rock star Jon Bon Jovi. The New Jersey native caught every game he could in person, even sometimes disguising himself as a photographer on the sidelines.

BELICHICK'S PLAN

To stop the K-Gun offense, defensive coordinator Bill Belichick devised a game plan that is now displayed in the Hall of Fame. He used as many as six defensive backs and as few as two down linemen to hold Buffalo to 19 points.

ONE GIANT LEAP

Days after telling his wife that he would quit football at the end of the season, Jeff Hostetler's frustration as a backup turned into the role of a lifetime when Phil Simms broke his foot. Hostetler took over as the starting quarterback, igniting an extraordinary chain of events.

SUPER BOWL SECURITY

Debated if the game should even be played due to the implications of the Gulf War, security was at an all-time high for Super Bowl XXV on January 27, 1991.

BRAVO!

Sports Illustrated captured the Giants' exultation with a photo of defensive back Everson Walls moments after clinching Super Bowl XXV on Scott Norwood's missed field goal.

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

Members of the Super Bowl XXV-winning Giants team were featured on the cover of the Wheaties box, keeping with the "Breakfast of Champions" tradition that dates back to the 1930s.
