The 1976 New York Giants season was the 52nd season for the club in the National Football League. The Giants had a 3–11 record in 1976 and finished in last place in the NFC East.

The season was highlighted by the opening of the new Giants Stadium at the New Jersey Meadowlands in East Rutherford on October 10. In the first game at the stadium, after four road games to open the season, the defending NFC champion Dallas Cowboys handed New York a 24–14 loss. The Giants' first win at Giants Stadium came on November 14, when they defeated the Washington Redskins 12–9.

For the 1976 season and now based in New Jersey, the Giants debuted their new helmet design, changing from a stylized "NY" to the word "GIANTS," underlined in block letters. They wore this helmet through the 1999 season.
