New York Giants Best Non-Playoff Teams of All-Time

3 of 5

1970 New York Giants

Record: 9-5-0, Finished 2nd in NFC East

Scored 301 points (21.5/g), 8th of 26 in the NFL. Allowed 270 points (19.3/g), 15th

A week 3 loss to the Saints by 4 and a week 10 loss to the Eagles by 3 cost the Giants a playoff berth. If they go 10-4, they tie the Cowboys for the division lead. At 11-3, the G-Men win the division and secure the #2 seed. It’s possible the Cowboys would not make the playoffs and someone else loses to the Colts in the Super Bowl. Fran Tarkenton and Ron Johnson make the Pro Bowl.

2010 New York Giants

Record: 10-6-0, Finished 2nd in NFC East

Scored 394 points (24.6/g), 7th of 32 in the NFL. Allowed 347 points (21.7/g), 17th

It all comes down to the last second loss to the Eagles in Week 14 aka Miracle at the New Meadowlands. If the Giants hold on to that victory, they finish 11-5, secure the #2 seed and host a divisional round game against either the Bears or the Seahawks. Shaun O’Hara and Chris Snee made the Pro Bowl on offense, Justin Tuck and Antrel Rolle get the honors on defense.
