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.
The Arizona Cardinals, of course, came up short in their only Super Bowl appearance in 2009, so they are still waiting to take their place among the all-time winners. But the Giants now stand with the Green Bay Packers as the only two teams to win four Super Bowls. They are now one of the only five teams in NFL history to win four or more.
While the Giants still stand behind the six titles of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the five titles of the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, they enter a whole new sphere of debates as to the all-time best football franchises. If the measure of a team's history can be measured in championships, the Giants are now truly one of the elite.
