A look back at the five biggest moments of Hakeem Nicks' career with the Giants
Hail Mary vs. Green Bay Jan. 15, 2012
Looking to extend their halftime lead in a 2011 Divisional Playoff Game at Lambeau Field, the Giants called for a shot to the end zone from Green Bay's 37-yard line with six seconds remaining.
And Hakeem Nicks cashed in, leaping up to catch the heave from Eli Manning as time expired for a 10-point lead heading into the locker room.
The Giants went on to defeat the top-seeded Packers, 37-20, as Nicks continued his historic postseason campaign with seven receptions for 165 yards and two scores.

On a 26-yard pass from Eli Manning with two seconds remaining in the first quarter of the 2010 season opener, Hakeem Nicks officially claimed the first touchdown scored at MetLife Stadium. He would catch only four passes in the 31-18 victory over the Carolina Panthers, the Charlotte native's hometown team, but three of them went for touchdowns.

Part of one of the best postseason runs by a wide receivers corps, Hakeem Nicks led all players with 10 receptions for 109 yards in the Giants' 21-17 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. It capped a four-game postseason stretch in which Nicks recorded 28 catches for 444 yards and four touchdowns. The 444 yards remain second-most in NFL history for a single postseason, trailing only Larry Fitzgerald's 546 in 2008 with the Cardinals.
