GIANT CHEESEHEADS!
 The Giant - Packer Rivalry  
        1928-2014       

The Giants and Packers have met 59 times since 1928.  Green Bay leads the series 31-26-2.  Before the NFL and AFL merger in 1966, this was one of the league's best rivalries. They met for the NFL championship five times, and the connections between the franchises are remarkable.  The twenty-three Giant Cheeseheads are the fine players and coaches who came to Green Bay either after being associated with the Giants, or through a special connection between New York and Green Bay.  Their impact on Packer history is significant.  Eight of the Giant Cheeseheads are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame,* and ten are in the Packers' Hall of Fame.
