The 1962 season was one of great success for the New York Giants as they finished 12-2 and appeared in the NFL Championship Game for the fifth time in the past seven seasons. It was also one of great disappointment, as they lost their fourth straight championship game, this time being a 16-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, in a blustery and bitterly cold game at Yankee Stadium. The 1963 season would also be one of great success, as they would, again, return to the NFL Championship Game following an 11-3 record. However, disappointment would again befall the franchise, with a heartbreaking 14-10 loss to the Chicago Bears.
