Yale Lary’s Fake Punt In 1958

March 4, 2020

Yale Lary, one of the great NFL players and a member of 3 Detroit Lions’ championship teams, helped propel what turned into the NFL’s Greatest Game on December 28, 1958.

The New York Giants trailed the Cleveland Browns in the standings and Lary’s Lions, in the game played in Detroit, 17 years after Pearl Harbor was attacked, December 7, 1958.

Lary was stopped short of a first down after he ran from punt formation. The Giants won the game and eventually the Eastern Conference crown, setting up the famed 1958 NFL Championship Game.
