The history between the Packers and Giants is nowhere as rich as the Packers and Bears or even the Packers and Lions, but these two teams have been two of the most successful franchises in NFL history. Sunday night's matchup will mark the third straight year that the Packers and Giants have faced off in the regular season, the first time that has happened since 1985-87. Green Bay has won the last three regular-season meetings.
It is also the third straight year that the Packers have played at MetLife Stadium, with a Week 13 contest in 2011 against the Giants and a Week 8 game with the Jets in 2010, the stadium’s first season. The Packers and Giants also met in a NFC Divisional playoff contest last season at Lambeau Field, one that was won by New York, 37-20.
Two of the most venerable franchises in professional football history, the Packers and Giants have combined for 21 championships. Green Bay ranks No. 1 among all NFL franchises with 13 titles, while the Giants check in at No. 3 with eight championships.
