On the final play, New York tried their own hook-and-lateral play, but the Bears’ Red Grange wrapped up receiver Red Badgro so that he was unable to lateral the ball to the trailing Burnett. The game was over; the Bears were champions, but the Giants could hold their heads high and plan for a better outcome next year.
