The 2014 New York Giants season was the franchise's 90th season in the National Football League, the fifth playing their home games at MetLife Stadium and the eleventh under head coach Tom Coughlin. The team failed to improve on their 7–9 mark from 2013, finishing 6–10.

To commemorate their ninetieth anniversary, the Giants wore a special patch on their jerseys. In addition, the team wore white pants instead of gray for two home games versus the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9 on Monday Night Football and two weeks later against the San Francisco 49ers.[1] With their loss to the Jaguars on November 30, 2014, the Giants sealed their second consecutive losing season.
