They claimed the NFL Eastern Championship and were part of the first-ever season-ending game that entered overtime.

 

After 1964, the franchise spent 18 years without being able to reach the Playoffs. During this time, the Giants moved out of New York in favor of a football field in New Jersey ahead of the 1976 NFL season. Their time away molded them and they made it to the Playoffs consistently throughout the 80s.
