Giants non-divisional rivalries?

Posted Oct 8, 2013

Which is biggest: Bears, 49ers, Packers, or Patriots?

The Giants won’t face another NFC East team until the end of the month, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other rivalries outside of the division.

The team travels to play the Chicago Bears on Thursday night for another edition of the oldest active series in Giants history, dating back to their inaugural season in 1925. The two franchises have met eight times in the postseason, with the Bears leading 5-3. However, all three of the Giants’ playoff wins led to championships (1934, 1956, and 1990).

The eight postseason games against the Bears are tied for the most in franchise history. The Giants have played the 49ers eight times (4-4) as well, followed by seven matchups with the Packers (3-4). Additionally, they have beaten the New England Patriots in two of the most memorable Super Bowls in recent history.
