Giants have track record of making playoffs wild


The Giants know how to get wild.

In 2007, they became the first NFC team to win the Super Bowl as a wild card and remain one of just seven overall to do so in NFL history. The others are the 1980 Raiders, 1997 Broncos, 2000 Ravens, 2005 Steelers, 2010 Packers, and 2020 Buccaneers. While that is obviously the best-case scenario for any team that secured a playoff berth despite not winning its division, you just need get the ball rolling.

The Giants will begin to push that boulder up the mountain this week in Minnesota, where they will face the NFC North champion Vikings for the second time in three weeks. Below is a look at how the Giants have fared on Wild Card Weekend, including years they were division champs:
