The 2014 New York Giants season was the franchise's 90th season in the National Football League, the fifth playing their home games at MetLife Stadium and the eleventh under head coach Tom Coughlin. The team failed to improve on their 7-9 mark from 2013, finishing 6-10.

To commemorate their ninetieth anniversary, the Giants wore a special patch on their jerseys. In addition, the team wore white pants instead of gray for two home games versus the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9 on Monday Night Football and two weeks later against the San Francisco 49ers.[1] With their loss to the Jaguars on November 30, 2014, the Giants sealed their second consecutive losing season.

Game summaries

Week 1: at Detroit Lions

The Lions routed the Giants 35-14. With the loss, the Giants opened the season with an 0-1 record.

Week 2: vs. Arizona Cardinals

Week 3: vs. Houston Texans

Week 4: at Washington Redskins

This would be the Giants largest margin of victory since their 42-7 win over the Eagles in 2012.

Week 5: vs. Atlanta Falcons

Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. would record his 1st NFL touchdown in this game.[3]

Week 6: at Philadelphia Eagles

The Giants were dominated from start to finish as the Eagles routed them 27-0. It was only the second time this season that an NFL team failed to score in a game (the Jets were shut out 31-0 in Week 5 against the Chargers). The loss snapped the Giants' 3 game winning streak as their overall record fell to 3-3.

Week 7: at Dallas Cowboys

Week 9: vs. Indianapolis Colts

Week 10: at Seattle Seahawks

Week 11: vs. San Francisco 49ers

Week 12: vs. Dallas Cowboys

This was the first Sunday Night Football game held in MetLife Stadium following a one-season absence.

With the loss, the Giants fell to 3-8, and were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention after the Lions defeated the Bears on Thanksgiving four days later. This game, however, is best known for an acrobatic one-handed catch by Odell Beckham Jr. early in the 2nd quarter that would go down as one of the greatest catches in NFL history. A penalty marker flew as he made the catch - for pass interference on Brandon Carr, who had been covering Beckham on that play.

Week 13: at Jacksonville Jaguars

The Giants had a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter, but went on to lose 25-24 to fall to 3-9, matching their loss total from 2013.

Week 14: at Tennessee Titans

Week 15: vs. Washington Redskins

Week 16: at St. Louis Rams

In this game, Odell Beckham Jr. broke Giants' franchise records for most receptions by a rookie and most receiving yards by a rookie, previously set by Jeremy Shockey in 2002. Beckham also topped 1,000 yards receiving for the season. In both cases, this was achieved despite Beckham missing the first four games of the season.

Week 17: vs. Philadelphia Eagles

With the loss, the Giants finished the season 6-10 and were swept by the Eagles for the first time since 2010. Also, their record against the Eagles fell to 3-11 dating back to 2008.
