Explore the 84 year-old rivalry between the Giants and the Packers. Discover the great players and coaches - Giant Cheeseheads - who were connected to the Giants before coming to the Packers to help lead them to greatness. Also, before the Super Bowl Era, this was the NFL's best rivalry and this program captures all the great games, players and stories!

It started in Brooklyn when Jim Rice’s uncle bet on the Packers to beat the Giants in both the 1961 and 1962 championship games. I began following the rivalry immediately and it seemed that both teams were always in contention. After leaving New York for college in Wisconsin, I eventually became a Packer fan. But I have never forgotten my gridiron roots - the New York Football Giants! After becoming a Green Bay fan, I rediscovered the rivalry and the many connections between the Giants and the Packers. These are the Giant Cheeseheads!
