The GMEN'S all-time record against their 2021 opponents
The Giant Insider|September 19, 2021
As we inch closer to opening day of the 2021 sea son, let’s take a look at how the Giants have fared historically against their opponents on this year’s schedule:

Week 1: Denver Broncos

The Giants’ all-time record against the Broncos is an even 6-6...but that’s only in the regular season. Count the Super Bowl XXI victory, and that gives them a winning record over Denver.

Weeks 2 & 18: Washington

Historically, the Giants have dominated the Washington Football Team, with an all-time record of 10569-4. They’ve split each of their two postseason meetings, with Washington winning the 1943 NFL Championship Game, and the Giants winning the 1986 NFC Championship Game. A good portion of the Giants’ winning record against Washington comes from the period between 1954 to ‘64, when their record against D.C. was 18-2-1. This also held off two prolonged periods of dominance that Washington had over the Giants: an 11-game winning streak between 1971 and ‘76, and a 10-2 record against New York between 1978 and ‘84. Their Week 2 Thursday night meeting this season at FedEx Field will be a defining game for both, as the Giants look to continue their current five-game winning streak over Washington.

Week 3: Atlanta Falcons

The Giants are 12-13 all-time against the Falcons, which includes their 24-2 victory over Atlanta in the Wild Card round of the 2011 playoffs. The Giants infamously gave the Falcons their first win in franchise history on November 20th, 1966. A Giants defense that surrendered almost 36 points per game that year played well by their standards, holding Atlanta to 27 points.

Week 4: New Orleans Saints

The Giants have a 16-14 record all-time against the Saints. Their Week 4 matchup in New Orleans will be the Giants’ first game at the Superdome since their 5249 defeat in Week 8 of the 2015 season. At the time, this was the highest-scoring game in NFL history (101 points). The Giants will also look to snap a five-game road losing streak against the Saints. They haven’t won in the Big Easy since December 20th, 1993.

Weeks 5 & 15: Dallas Cowboys
