The Giants coddled a 17-14 lead with 2H minuts to play after an electrifying second half comeback. It was fourth down and inches to go on New York's 43. A first down probably would have permitted the Giants to run out the clock on four ground plays. A punt would give the Colts another chance. Go for broke? Or play it safe? Coach Jim Le« Howell elected to play it safe. The Giants punted, Baltimore struck back to within scoring range and tied the score 17-17 on Steve Myhra's 20-yard field goal.

The punt was the obvious strategy and Chandler boomed a lone one that Taseff returned a yard to the Colts' 20. In 13 plays Baltimore's fine offense ground out a touchdown with Ameche crashing over right guard from the one through a gaping hole. Unitas, who couldn't play when the Giants beat the Colts 24-21 in (ha regular season because of three damaged ribs, was simply tremendous. The former Louisville star, who was snatched from the sandlots by the Colts, completed 6 of 40 passes from 349 yards. Time after time he hit Ray Berry, who caught 12, on beautiful pass patterns that split the Giants' defense. Rushes Olanti Paster Gino Marchetti, who suffered a broken ankle and was carried off the field on a stretcher late in the game, rushed Giants' quarterback Charley Conerly all afternoon. The Colts' defensive line was superb, giving Conerly little time to throw, the line backers covered in excellent style and the deep men did thir job. Perhaps the most gripping moment in the heart throb special came when Myhra, who had done double duty as a linebacker after Leo Sanford's first period injury, kicked his hurried field goal. The clock showed only 10 seconds were left when he booted the ball high against the glare of the Stadium lights. The Giants and most of the home crowd of 64,185 fans thought they got a break when they won the toss of the coin and chose to receive in the sudden death extra period, the first ever played in a regular championship game. Conerly connected with Bob Schnelker for a 46-yard pass on the first play of the fourth period and threw to Frank Gilford for the touchdown that put the Giants ahead with only 53 seconds gone in the period.
