The Giants will return to their classic blue looks for two games.
Yesterday, the New York Giants announced that two games in the 2022 NFL season will be “throwback games.” During these games, both of which will be on the Giants’ home turf, the end-zones will feature designs reminiscent of the team’s first two Super Bowls, while the players will don their classic blue, white, and red uniforms with Giants-branded helmets. The games will be against the Chicago Bears and the Washington Commanders.
“I get letters from [Giants] fans all the time about different subjects. A lot of them write to me about the uniform,” Giants co-owner John Mara said. “They wanted to see this uniform used again for at least some of our games. That’s kind of what led to it.”
“That era really defines success of Giants football,” Giants senior vice president and chief commercial officer Pete Guelli said.

“They were playoff opponents of ours during some of our more successful seasons,” Mara added. “Just thought that would be appropriate to bring them out for those games. Washington obviously was in that ’86 championship game. Played Chicago in the playoffs also [in that era]. Two traditional teams that have been around for a long time. We thought they were the right games.”
