All About The New York Giants

This is also one of the top three teams in the NFL. The Giants have won four pre-Super Bowl era NFL Championship titles and, in more modern times, they have four Super Bowl wins. They have also racked up more championship appearances than any other NFL team – with nineteen appearances. The only teams with a higher championship count are the Green Bay Packers with thirteen, and the Chicago Bears with nine. During their tenure, they have also boasted 29 Hall of Fame players as well as four NFL MVPs.

The New York Giants Main Rivalries
Having been around since 1925, there has been plenty of time to establish some rivalries – here are the main NY Giants rivals in the league.
One of the oldest of all their rivalries is against the Philadelphia Eagles, which dates back to 1933. They have often faced off for playoff spots, the NFC East title, and plain-old bragging rights. Although the New York Giants have more often than not dominated the Eagles, in the 1980s it became a little more evenly matched – and the Eagles even went 22-21 up in the 1990s and 2000s. The Eagles have had a more competitive team than the Giants in very recent seasons. Accordingly, the Eagles actually lead the all-time series now with 92 wins to the New York Giants 87 wins (they have fought to 2 draws). In terms of playoff games, they have met four times and have won two each. The Giants will face Philadelphia on December 25th, 2023, and January 7th, 2024.
The Washington Football Team
This rivalry goes back to 1932 and this has seen some great competition. During the 1980s, the New York Giants and Washington Redskins fought fiercely for division titles and playoff success. The most famous between them was the 1986 NFC Championship Game, a contest which saw the New York Giants hammer the Redskins 17-0. This is considered by some as the New York Giants oldest and truest rival in NFL history.
The Giants will face the Commanders in the 2023/24 NFL regular season twice. The first game is on October 22nd, 2023, and the second game is on November 19th, 2023. It would take a very strong run of form over several years before this series some relative parity. Currently, the Giants lead the series 106-71-5.
The Dallas Cowboys
Another fierce divisional rivalry is against the Dallas Cowboys since 1960. between them, they have won nine Super Bowls and have played numerous titles in the pursuit of the NFC East title. This rivalry is unique because they are based a long way apart. The Dallas Cowboys lead the series quite comfortably, 73-47-2.
San Francisco 49ers
Although they have never been in the same division, this rivalry is heated. They have played eight playoff matches historically – which includes two NFC Championship games, both won by the Giants. The series is currently tied 21-21-0. Barring a tie game in their next match up, which will take place in San Francisco on September 21st, 2023, that tie will soon be broken.
The New York Giants have played the Chicago Bears in six NFL Championship games to date. The Bears have won four of these games to the Giants two… one of which was the famous Sneakers Game in 1934. In terms of the all-time series, the Bears have won 36 games compared to 25 Giants’ wins and two draws. They have a 5-3 postseason record in the Bears’ favour.
New York Jets
It goes without saying that there has been a longstanding rivalry between the New York Giants and New York Jets – even sharing the same stadium. Every year, since 1969, they have met in preseason games, games which are now known as the ‘Metlife Bowl’. They only ever play regular-season games once every four years. Overall, despite not having met very often in competitive matches, the Giants have won 8 regular season games compared to the 6 won by the New York Jets – and have won five out of the last seven meetings. They will meet in the regular season in 2023/24, a game that will take place on October 29th, 2023. Technically, the Giants will be hosts of the game but the game will take place in the teams’ shared venue.
New England Patriots
Although these two teams rarely played each other – being in different conferences, their rivalry grew in the late 2000s as a result of some memorable moments between Eli Manning and Tom Brady. In 2007, the Patriots beat the Giants to earn a perfect 16-0 season record. However, the Giants beat the Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI and thereby blocked the Pats’ bid for a perfect entire season. The New England Patriots lead the series 7-6-0 and they will meet this season on November 26th, 2023.
