Detailed description on our website.
Still fairly new to the NFL, the Baltimore Colts established themselves as a top tier team by winning back to back championships in 1958 and 1959 under the guidance of HOF QB Johnny Unitas. The Colts faced the very talented New York Giants in both games, first in what has been dubbed “The Greatest Game Ever Played” on 12/28/58 at Yankee Stadium and then repeating on 12/27/59 at home in Memorial Stadium.
