The 1974 New York Giants season was the 50th season for the club in the National Football League. The Giants finished in last place in the National Football Conference East Division with a 2–12 record, the team's worst since 1966.[1][2]

The Giants' home venue in 1974 was the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Connecticut,[3] and they were winless at home in seven games. They won only one of twelve games at the Yale Bowl in 1973 and 1974. The Giants played at Shea Stadium in Queens in 1975 and opened Giants Stadium in New Jersey in October 1976.[3][4]
