It was to go down in football lore as The Greatest Game Ever Played. The 1958 NFL Championship Game between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants skyrocketed the sport to mega-popularity. The first nationally televised football game, it featured unprecedented drama and, yes, something new--overtime. A two-minute drive by the Colts' legendary quarterback Johnny Unitas secured a tie, leading to teammate Alan The Horse Ameche's plunge into the end zone. But this is only part of the story of a hard-fought game featuring a slew of future Hall of Famers. One Sunday in December is the first book to thoroughly chronicle football's single most legendary game. Drawing on interviews with players who were there--including Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, Pat Summerall, Raymond Berry, Lenny Moore, Gino Marchetti, and Art Donovan--veteran sportswriter Lou Sahadi delivers an action-packed narrative that will take football fans across America back to one Sunday they will never forget.
