Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Giants vs Eagles
Rival Team: Philadelphia Eagles
The Giants-Eagles rivalry is one of the fiercest in the NFL and has been going on since 1933. The rivalry is geographically based as Philadelphia, and New York has strong rivalries in all four of the major professional sports. The rivalry is so strong that it was even voted the #1 NFL rivalry by NFL Network. The Giants shutout the Eagles in the teams’ initial meeting and hold an 85-79-2 lead in the all-time series, which they will look to extend this upcoming season.
Giants vs Cowboys
Rival Team: Dallas Cowboys
Unlike the Giant’s rivalry with the Eagles, the Giants-Cowboys rivalry doesn’t stem from geography, but from the fact that these two rivals have played in the same division for most of the Cowboys history. It is a unique rivalry in that it is the only rivalry in all of sports between a New York and Texas team. The two teams tied their first meeting 31-31, but the Cowboys have taken the lead in the all-time series 61-43-2. The Giants will look to narrow the gap when these two teams meet this coming season.
Giants vs Commanders
Rival Team: Washington Commanders
The oldest rivalry in the NFC East began in 1932 when the then Boston Braves joined the NFL. The rivalry reached its height in the 1980s, during which the Redskins and Giants combined for 3 Super Bowl victories. The Giants lead the all-time series 97-65-4, but things are all knotted up at one game apiece when these two rivals meet in the playoffs.
Giants vs Jets
Rival Team: New York Jets
The rivalry between the Giants and Jets is unique in that these two teams are the only two NFL teams to share a stadium and are also the only intracity rivals in the NFL. However, due to playing in different conferences these two teams rarely meet and have only played 12 times throughout history. As a result of the infrequency of this rivalry, the rivalry is much stronger in the stands than on the field.
