The New York Giants returned to New Jersey from their game against the San Francisco 49ers to find that some of their cars had been burglarized and one was stolen from the team's lot outside MetLife Stadium.

The players leave their vehicles in a gated lot outside the Timex Performance Center, a practice facility at the Meadowlands complex. They're supposed to be watched by a private security company; however, someone broke in to burglarize the cars between 4 and 4:20 a.m. Sunday, about 12 hours before the team took the field in San Francisco.

The players had left their cars unlocked in the gated lot. It's unclear which Giants the cars belonged to, but a New Jersey state police spokesman confirmed they mainly belonged to players. The car that was stolen was a 1996 Chevy Caprice. Offensive tackle James Brewer tweeted that he had been one of the players burglarized after landing in New York Sunday night.

The perpetrators are currently unknown.
