Founded in 1925, the Giants quickly established themselves as a dominant franchise with championships in 1927, 1934, and 1938, with tile game losses in 1933, 1935, 1939, 1941, 1944, and 1946. They continued to be an excellent franchise in the 1950s and 1960s under the direction of quarterback Y.A. Tittle with a 1956 title and losses in the 1958, 1959, and 1961-63 championship games. The Giants of this era established a reputation for being unable to win in the clutch. After have no playoff berths throughout the 1970s, the team returned to glory during the 1980s. Although they only had 5 playoff berths during the decade, they assembled a franchise of great players such as quarterback Phil Simms and lineback Lawrence Taylor, that was able to take a championship in Super Bowl XXI in 1986. The team also started the 1990s with a bang, winning another title in 1990. In that year's Super Bowl XXV, New York defeated cross-state rival Buffalo after the Bills missed what would have been a game-winning field goal. Since that last title, playoff berths have been sparse, with just 4 from 1991-2004, including a blowout loss in the Super Bowl in 2000. However, the team took a step in the right direction with a playoff berth in 2005, and the Giants appear to have a bright future."
