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.
While the Seattle Seahawks are still searching for their first Super Bowl win (they fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers in their only appearance to date, in 2006), the Giants moved to the upper echelon on Sunday, becoming one of just five teams in NFL history to win four or more Super Bowls. They join the Green Bay Packers, the Dallas Cowboys, the San Francisco 49ers and the Steelers in the top five franchises with the most championships.
It may have been a tough game to watch in the Northwest, where winning seasons come few and far between. Seeing yet another championship game arrive between two extremely successful franchises is probably not the tastiest cup of tea.
But it cannot be ignored that the Giants have vaulted themselves into the upper echelon of all-time NFL franchises. Their win on Sunday means that they will now be included in a whole new set of debates regarding the all-time great teams.
