The 1964 New York Giants season was the 40th season for the club in the National Football League. The Giants won two games and lost ten, with two other games ending in a tie.

As a result, the Giants plummeted from NFL Eastern Conference Champions the previous season to last place, for their first losing season since 1953. The Giants were not to return to the postseason until 1981.
