The New York Giants football team is one of the five oldest franchises in football and the third most successful, having won eight championships. Nicknamed “Big Blue” and the “G-Men”, the team shares MetLife Stadium with the New York Jets. While the Giants had one of the best teams in the history football in 1956, with Hall of Fame players such as running back Frank Gifford and linebacker Sam Huff and legendary coaches Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry, the team did not find success for a long time after. From 1964 to 1978, the team had just two winning seasons and didn’t make the playoffs once.
In 1979, the Giants drafted quarterback Phil Simms and in 1981, they drafted one of the greatest to ever play in Lawrence Taylor. These two players along with Bill Parcells, who became head coach in 1983, were instrumental in returning the Giants to the top of the NFL. The team has since won four titles, including two in the past seven years. New York Giants tickets give fans the opportunity to see Eli Manning, one of the most clutch quarterbacks ever, throw to an extremely talented and young group of wide receivers. This, along with the well-respected coaching strategies of head coach Tom Coughlin, makes watching a Giants game live as exciting as ever.

New York Giants Rivals
Giants vs. Eagles
The Giants and Eagles have played in the same division, now the NFC East, since 1933. Needless to say, these teams know each other pretty well and don’t love each other too much. The Giants Eagles rivalry is considered one of the fiercest in sports. The Giants have won 85 games against the Eagles, while Philly has won 77 games against the Giants. There have only been two ties in the all-time series. From a 1978 game that featured the play commonly referred to as “The Miracle at the Meadowlands” to a 2006 game in which former New York wide receiver Plaxico Burress caught a game winning pass from Manning to a 2010 punt return by DeSean Jackson that resulted in a touchdown and ended the Giants season, this rivalry has featured a plethora of memorable games.
Giants vs. Cowboys
The Giants and Cowboys have an interesting rivalry since Dallas and East Rutherford are so far from each other. The distance between the two teams, however, has not taken away from the hatred these two teams have for each other. With both teams having controversial quarterbacks, as Eli Manning is criticized for his inconsistent regular season play and Tony Romo is criticized for choking late in games and in the playoffs, the entire country loves to watch this heated rivalry. These two big-market teams have had a lot of intense games and with both teams looking to bounce back after disappointing seasons, fans won’t want to miss out on buying Cowboys Giants tickets.
Giants vs. Redskins
The Giants and Redskins have been rivals since 1932 and with the two teams meeting twice a year, this rivalry won’t end anytime soon. With the Redskins’ young offensive core, led by quarterback Robert Griffin III, wide receiver Desean Jackson, and running back Alfred Morris, and the Giants’ talented offensive core, including Manning and wide receivers Odell Beckham, Jr. and Victor Cruz, there are always a lot of points scored when these two teams go at it. As the Redskins continue to grow and the Giants attempt to make another Superbowl run, this rivalry could soon become as fun to watch as the Giants’ rivalries with the Cowboys and Eagles.
New York Giants Schedule 2014
The New York Giants haven't been to the postseason since they won the Super Bowl in 2011. Last year is one that teams and fans want to forget, and the 2014 season is a chance to wipe the slate clean. In addition to the division schedule against rivals Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington, the Giants will face the NFC West and the AFC South throughout the season. There will be plenty of opportunities to notch big wins against some of the top teams in the league and return to the playoffs, so check out the entire New York Giants schedule and find the game you want to see.
Key Home Games
Week 11 vs. San Francisco 49ers - Jim Harbaugh brings Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers to MetLife Stadium for a clash with the Giants. The 49ers are one of the stalwarts of an incredibly tough NFC West and will represent a great test for the Giants in the middle of the season.
Week 12 vs. Dallas Cowboys - Whenever the Giants and Cowboys play, it's must-watch football. Eli Manning owns a career 10-9 record against the Cowboys and has had more recent success on the road. The Giants have dropped the last two home games to Tony Romo and the Cowboys, but Manning will look to change that.
Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles - The last game of the year against a division rival that won the NFC East last year has all the makings of a great game. There should be plenty on the line, be it playoff seeding or clinching a berth in the postseason.
