Walter Iooss is known as “the poet laureate of sports” for his ability to combine artistry with the capture of decisive moments.
Iooss’s densely packed composition communicates the heft and force of this mass of brawny men, most trying to stop but a few trying to protect Steeler Theron Sapp, who pushes against them all from the right edge. This game determined which of the two teams would play in the National Football League Championship Game. The Giants won this game but lost the championship.
