New York Giants
The New York Giants are a professional American football team based in the New York City metropolitan area. The team is headquartered, trains, and plays its home games at Giants Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in the suburb of East Rutherford, New Jersey.
They are currently members of the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Giants were one of five teams that joined the NFL in 1925, but the only one admitted that year that still exists.
The Giants have won a total of six NFL titles, four pre-merger NFL Championships (1927, 1934, 1938 and 1956) and 2 Super Bowls (1986, 1990).
From 1964 to 1980, the Giants suffered losing seasons and were never able to advance to the playoffs. But from 1981 to 2005, the team qualified for the postseason 11 out of those 25 seasons. During that period, they won Super Bowl XXI (1987) and Super Bowl XXV (1991), and lost Super Bowl XXXV (2001). The team's success during the 1980s was aided by head coach Bill Parcells, quarterback Phil Simms, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, and linebacker Harry Carson.
