"Frank Gifford brings the contest so alive that you find yourself almost wondering, 50 years later, how it will turn out in the end."
--New York Times Book Review

The Glory Game recreates in breathtaking detail the 1958 National Football League Championship Game between the New York Giants and the Baltimore Colts, which many football fans feel was "The Greatest Game Ever Played." This first-hand, field level, "behind-the-helmet" account by ex-Giant Hall of Famer and longtime "Monday Night Football" broadcaster Frank Gifford brings back to life all the sights and sounds of the momentous contest that changed football forever, and offers vivid, indelible portraits of the legendary players--including Sam Huff, Andy Robustelli, Art Donovan, Lenny Moore, and Raymond Berry. The Giants-Colts clash of '58 was truly The Glory Game--and now readers can relive it in all its glory.

Review:

"The NFL, as we know it today, began with the 1958 Championship. There's nobody better to tell the story of that game and the guys who played it than Frank Gifford. This book, like those players, is All-Madden."--John Madden

"Frank Gifford's superb memoir shows what it really takes and means to be a champion. Also, it's nice to read about the Giants losing a title game."--Bill Belichick

From the Back Cover:

In 1958 Frank Gifford was the golden boy on the glamour team in the most celebrated city in the NFL. When his New York Giants played the Baltimore Colts for the league championship that year, it became the single most memorable contest in the history of professional football. Its drama, excitement, and controversy riveted the nation and helped propel football to the forefront of the American sports landscape. Now Hall of Famer and longtime television analyst Frank Gifford provides an inside-the-helmet account that will take its place in the annals of sports literature.
