With nearly a century of NY Giants football, the four-time Super Bowl Champs have won 715 games behind some of the most legendary coaches, front offices, and players in NFL history. The G-Men won their first championship in 1927, just their third year as a franchise in the National Football League.

Fast forward to 1986, the Giants defeated the Denver Broncos to win their first Super Bowl. Big Blue would eventually go on to win another ring in 1990 with the help of quarterback Phil Simms. But when Giants fans think of winning in recent years, they think of Eli Manning.

The four-time Pro Bowler would go on to win two Super Bowls of his own by defeating the New England Patriots twice. All in all, New York has provided countless teams with plenty of problems over the years. In this piece, we take a look at four squads NY has the best record against:

Houston Texans

Although the Giants have only faced the Houston Texans six times, winning five, they have the highest winning percentage (83.3 percent) compared to any other team.

The Giants have not played the Texans as much as other opponents because Houston joined the NFL in 2002 and is the youngest franchise currently competing in the league. They are also a member of the AFC South Division, which means they are not an annual matchup for the G-Men.

Big Blue's lone loss came in their first meeting on Nov. 24, 2002, at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Texans' game-winning field goal from Kris Brown powered a 16-14 victory over the Giants. Since that meeting, the G-Men have been on a five-game winning streak against the Houston Texans.

The last meeting between both teams came last season in Week 10, the Giants won 24-16. Darius Slayton had three receptions, 95 yards and a touchdown. The Giants kept it on the ground; however, the ball was in the hands of Saquon Barkley 35 times. The veteran running back ran for 152 yards and had a third-quarter touchdown to keep Big Blue's winning streak alive.
