As Giants Stadium approached 30 years of age, it was becoming one of the older stadiums in the NFL. The Jets then entered into a joint venture with the Giants to build a new stadium in which the two New York teams would be equal partners. MetLife Stadium is one of only two NFL stadiums shared by two clubs.

History. The New York Giants started playing in 1925. They were named for the baseball team also called the New York Giants .
Turf woes hit 49ers The 49ers played the Jets in MetLife Stadium in Week 2. Their defensive line was ravaged by two ACL tears during that contest, with both Bosa and Thomas going down. “Guys seemed to be getting stuck in the ground more than regularly,” Arik Armstead told reporters after the 49ers’ Week 2 win.
Since the two teams play each other so infrequently in the regular season, some, including players on both teams, have questioned whether the Giants and Jets have a real rivalry.

In fact, only eleven years after opening, the time is right now for the Jets to begin the process of moving forward to build their own stadium , in New York City, to begin play in 2026. With over 82,000 seats, it will be the largest NFL stadium once the LA Coliseum is retired when the Rams move in 2020.
The Giants have won four National Football League (NFL) championships (1927, 1934, 1938, and 1956) and four Super Bowls (1987, 1991, 2008, and 2012). The Giants were noted for their early successes and for their dominant play in the 1980s and ’90s under head coach Bill Parcells.

There are now 12 NFL franchises that have not won a Super Bowl after the Eagles earned their first title in 2018. The Bengals, Bills, Browns, Cardinals, Chargers, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, Panthers, Texans , Titans and Vikings have not won a Super Bowl in their history.
Five defunct NFL franchises (the Akron Pros /Indians, Canton Bulldogs , Cleveland Bulldogs /Indians, Frankford Yellow Jackets, and Providence Steam Roller ) had previously won NFL championships. The most recent franchise to become defunct was the Dallas Texans , which folded in 1952 after one season in the league.
The Giants are currently owned by the sons of Wellington Mara and Bob Tisch—John K. Mara and Steve Tisch. An estimate of the franchise’s current value places it at $3.2 billion .
