All three of those teams beat the Giants earlier that season.
It's beyond comprehension that the Giants won the SB that year.
This. Every team NY beat after Atlanta - Dallas, GB and NE - were better teams and had proven so during the regular season. NY did not match up well against any of them. They were on a mission, and overcame whatever was thrown against them.
