Tommie Hill Returns Last-Second Fumble To Give Giants Meaningless Preseason Win Over Panthers: Video



Tonight’s Monday Night Preseason Football game between the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers had an exciting ending. Or at least, an exciting ending for a preseason game.

Panthers QB Hunter Cantwell had just led his team back with a tying touchdown to send the game to overtime, or so everyone thought. Carolina forced the Giants to go 3-and-out, giving them the ball deep in Giants territory with 10 seconds on the clock. The Panthers perhaps thought the Giants would be sleeping, so they tried one last play, forgetting that there might be a couple of defenders who might like to make a name for themselves.

Some guys named Leger Douzable and Tommie Hill did just that. Douzable caused Cantwell to fumble, then Hill caught the ball in midair and ran it back for the winning touchdown.

How little did this great play matter? We’re only a few hours after the game and ESPN doesn’t have a single mention of it on their top stories.

The ending is reminiscent of Miracle at the Meadowlands in 1978, when the Philadelphia Eagles’ Herm Edwards recovered a fumble by Joe Pisarcik and Larry Csonka of the Giants to give the Eagles an unexpected victory. It was the last thing that Herm ever did without colossally screwing up.

You play to win the game!
