The New York Giants regular season left plenty of good memories for fans.
While they prepare for a big Wild Card matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, it is good to reflect on what has ultimately been a successful year.
It is hard to narrow down the choices for the best moments, but a few stand out.
Here are the two best moments from the Giants’ 2022-2023 regular season.
2. Week 1 Win
The Giants started off the year in a big way, coming home with a 21-20 win over the Tennessee Titans.

While getting a win is always special, doing so on a two-point conversation with a minute left in the game is even bigger.
This set the tone for the Giants this season.
It showed that head coach Brian Daboll was willing to make tough decisions with the game on the line.
Though it was all the way back in Week 1, it started the momentum that the Giants needed to put together this successful year.
1. Giants Beat Commanders In Rematch
With massive playoff implications on the line, the Giants traveled to Washington to take on the Commanders in Week 15.
What ensued was a breakout performance from Kayvon Thibodeaux that helped propel the Giants to a 20-12 victory.

In front of a Sunday Night Football crowd, the Giants stepped up to the occasion.
Thibodeaux in particular elevated his game, coming away with a strip sack that he recovered for a touchdown.
It was a classic division rivalry game that was low scoring and intense, but the Giants were able to hold onto the win.
The win didn’t necessarily clinch a playoff spot, but it was the moment that the playoffs began to feel like a real possibility for Giants fans.
