ESPN Chicago takes a look back:
In the long and storied history that is New York Giants football, Jan. 5, 1986 is not a date anyone in the organization cares to remember.
"It was not," says former Giants center Bart Oates, "my most pleasant day."
"I remember talking to Phil [Simms] some years after that and he said 'You know, that Bears game we were so close, we could've won that game,' and I looked at him and said 'Are you smoking crack? I'm not sure which game you were playing in.'
"I didn't get that feeling at all. It was total confusion. They just dominated. To me, felt like a 42-0 game. I think we could have played another eight quarters and would not score another touchdown against them. Our schemes and personnel just didn't match up well with them."
