New York Giants and Super Bowl Champions that Failed to Make the Playoffs Following Season

The New York Giants Have Laid a Stinker Three Times After Winning the Super Bowl

The New York Giants Have Laid a Stinker Three Times After Winning the Super Bowl

The 2012 New York Giants failed to make the playoffs thanks to a late-season meltdown that saw two woeful performances against the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons.

Oddly, three out of the four times Big Blue won it all, they were a no-show the following year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, also, dropped the postseason ball three times after being crowned.

In sum, 14 of the 46 Super Bowl champs didn’t follow it up with a playoff appearance. That’s 30 percent of the time.
