IT WAS ‘THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED’

(Fox News) – The Baltimore Colts stunned the New York Giants
23-17 in "sudden death" at the NFL championship game at
Yankee Stadium before a mesmerized nationwide
television
audience
on this day in history, Dec. 28, 1958.

The event has gone down in American sports lore as "the
greatest game ever played."

The dramatic title tilt helped popularize pro football at a time
when it ranked behind baseball and college football — even
boxing and horse racing — in the national sporting
consciousness.
