The New York Giants picked up their fourth all-time Super Bowl title on Sunday when they defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. The win vaults them over the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders, with whom they were previously tied with three Super Bowl titles each. Also in the three Super Bowl titles camp are the Washington Redskins and the Patriots.
The Giants are now one of five teams to have won four or more Super Bowls. The Giants and Raiders have both appeared in five Super Bowls, but the Raiders have two losses in the big game, against just one by the Giants, when they were blown out by the Baltimore Ravens in 2001.
While the Raiders are still searching for another Super Bowl title to catch up to the Giants and the Green Bay Packers, New York is now chasing the tier of five-time champions, currently occupied by the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers.
Moving from the top eight to the top five in all-time Super Bowl wins does quite a bit for the legacy of the New York franchise, but it appears they still have a bit of work left to do in order to firmly entrench themselves in the conversation for one of the very best football teams of all time.
