Sunday's 21-17 victory in Super Bowl 2012 over the New England Patriots placed the New York Giants in elite company, as the Giants collected their second second title in five years and fourth overall.

Currently, the Giants sit in a tie for fourth all-time with the Green Bay Packers, who trail the Pittsburgh Steelers (6), Dallas Cowboys (5), San Fransisco 49ers (5), respectively.
