A look back at the Giants' 15 trips to the playoffs during the Super Bowl era.

Bill Parcells wrapped up his tenure as Giants coach by leading Big Blue (13-3) to its second Super Bowl in five seasons. The Giants cruised through the regular season, allowing a league-low 211 points.

Divisional: The defense suffocated the Bears in a 31-3 blowout. Chicago managed just 27 yards rushing and 11 first downs, and turned the ball over twice.

NFC Championship: One of three teams to beat the Giants in the regular season, the Niners nearly knocked off the Giants. John Taylor’s 61-yard touchdown reception in the third gave San Francisco a 13-6 lead, but Matt Bahr hit a trio of field goals to lift New York.

Super Bowl XXV: Behind backup quarterback Jeff Hostetler — Phil Simms was out with a broken foot — the Giants beat Buffalo 20-19 in the Super Bowl. Scott Norwood was the game’s goat, missing a potential game-winning field goal wide right.
