The Giants were founded and played their first season in 1925.
The Giants are still a family-owned organization. The original founder, Tim Mara, passed the team down to his sons, Jack and Wellington. Currently, John Mara (Wellington’s son) is the primary owner of the team, the third generation of his family to own the Giants.
One of the most-storied franchises in NFL history, the Giants have won eight total NFL championships; four in the pre-Super Bowl era, and four Super Bowl titles.
The Giants played in the 1958 NFL Championship game, losing 23-17 in overtime to the Baltimore Colts. The game was labeled “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” and is remembered for increasing the popularity of the NFL.
The Giants spoiled the New England Patriots’ bid for a perfect season when they defeated them in Super Bowl XLII. They beat the Patriots again four seasons later to win Super Bowl XLVI.
