Team HistoryThe New York Giants began their football career on a Sunday in October, 1925. Although the Giants had a dismal beginning (losing their first three games) it wasnt long before they bounced back, winning the championship title just three years later! Since then the Giants have gone on to win six League Championships (including two Super Bowls), nine Conference Championships and thirteen Division Finals. Other memorable moments include:
- The 1934 Sneakers Game One of the most famous football matches in NFL history took place in 1934 when the New York Giants took on the Chicago Bears during a regular season game at Polo Grounds. Adverse weather conditions had been hindering the Giants throughout the game until head coach Steve Owen came up with an idea. During half time he provided his players with basketball sneakers in order to increase traction and eliminate slippage. Sure enough, the Giants rebounded, scoring four touchdowns, ultimately upsetting the Bears 30-13.
- The Greatest Game Ever Played The 1958 NFL Championship game between the New York Giants and the BALTIMORE Colts have been christened The Greatest Game Ever Played for a variety of reasons. Twelve future Hall of Fame members took to the field that afternoon to duke it out for gridiron supremacy, providing sports fans with endless excitement and edge-of-your seat drama. A game tying field goal sent this game into overtime, but the Giants continued to battle for the win. The Colts ended up victorious in the end as Johnny Unitas assisted Alan Ameche with a 1-yard winning touchdown plunge.
