Tyrod Taylor Makes History as First Black Quarterback to Win Game for the NY Giants 


October 30, 2023

The New York Giants, a team that joined the NFL back in 1925, witnessed a historic moment on October 22.

For the first time in the team’s over 90-year history, a Black quarterback led them to victory, NBC Sports reports.

Tyrod Taylor, a seasoned 34-year-old quarterback who has played for several teams throughout his career, achieved this milestone with a 14-7 triumph over the Washington Commanders.


Taylor is just the second Black quarterback to start a game for the Giants. The first was Geno Smith back in 2017.

It means a lot,” Taylor said October 25, via Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. “I didn’t know that going into it. . . . I mean, it’s history. Proud to be part of it. . . .”

“Ultimately, I’m proud of the guys and the way they competed this past weekend. Something to build off of,” he added. “There’s a lot of positives from that game. I look forward to continuing to keep, if given the opportunity, competing with the guys on Sundays and going out there and striving for a win.


Including his winning game, Taylor now has a total of 54 career starts and a record of 27-26-1.

He has started two games in place of Daniel Jone, who remains benched due to a neck injury.
