New York Giants

The New York Giants are an American football team based in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but represent the city of New York. They are one of the historic members of the National Football League (NFL), founded in 1925. The Giants have a long history of success in professional football, having won eight NFL titles, including four during the Super Bowl era. One of the Giants' most memorable moments was their Super Bowl XLII victory in 2008, when they defeated the New England Patriots who had been having a perfect season up until that point. With brilliant football and a great defense, the Giants managed a 17-14 win in one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history. The Giants franchise has had several famous players over the years, including Lawrence Taylor, considered one of the greatest defensive players of all time, and quarterback Eli Manning, who led the team to two Super Bowl victories.

The Giants are one of five teams to join the NFL in 1925 and the only one still in existence, as well as the longest-running Northeastern team in the league. The team ranks third in most championships: four in the pre-Super Bowl era (1927, 1934, 1938, 1956) and four since the Super Bowl (Super Bowl XXI (1986), XXV ( 1990), XLII (2007) and XLVI (2011)), as well as being the team to have reached the finals the most times, 19. Only the Green Bay Packers (13) and the Chicago Bears (9) have won more titles than the Giants. Throughout its history, the franchise has had 15 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in its ranks, including NFL MVP winners Mel Hein, Frank Gifford, Y.A. Tittle and Lawrence Taylor.
