The Giants hosted the Chicago Bears, who they had tied earlier in the year during an 8-3-1 campaign, at Yankee Stadium for the NFL Championship Game. Led by quarterback Frank Gifford, as well as four other future Hall of Famers in Roosevelt Brown, Andy Robustelli, Emlen Tunnel and Sam Huff -- as well as Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry making the respective offensive and defensive calls as coordinators -- Gifford was named the MVP and the Giants slaughtered the Bears 47-7 for the franchise's third NFL title.
