I remember as a child watching "The Violent World of Sam Huff" on Walter Cronkite's CBS show The Twentieth Century. Sam Huff was the most publicized defensive player (made the cover of Time magazine in 1959) of late 50s and early 60s. When the Giants played the Browns, news stories played up "the man to man battle between Sam Huff and Jimmy Brown."
