The New York Giants were trailing the San Francisco 49ers, 16-7, but they managed to make it a game again after kicker Josh Brown nailed a 43-yard field goal.
Very few people would have expected to do what the Giants did next since it is still the third quarter, but head coach Tom Coughlin demonstrated his brilliant mind by calling an onside kick attempt.
The Giants successfully recovered their onside kick, and they are still locked in a tight battle with the 49ers.
Here is a video from Vine of this unexpected play.
