    One was GB on the road in prime time after a road game in Minnesota in prime time. That was brutal.
    The other was the Bengals at home.
    and we played the Cowboys off 10 days rest last year like we do this year too

      Opponents we face after their bye week

      @ Broncos

      vs. Seahawks

      vs. Rams (we both share this bye week)

      vs. Chiefs
      I'm my opinion the worst part of the schedule is that fact that we have the home opener on a Monday night... Which means we have a short week of rest headed into Philly.. A place they historically struggle greatly in.

      The teams that we play we set in stone as soon as the standings were set.. But the cliche goes its not who you play.. its when you play them.. And I don't think the schedule could have worked out much worse then this.

      The schedule will not make or break the season though. I will complain about this for another week and then I'll be too distracted by the draft to complain.

          Yet we still went 11-5; best record in quite awhile.

          If were good then the schedule wont be an issue and as I've stated before, I like the exciting games against the better teams.

            I would think that Denver Broncos have toughest schedule. They play Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, NE Patriots, NY Giants and also have to play Oakland Raiders twice and Kansas City Chiefs twice as well.

            If NY Giants are a good team then the schedule should be fine. I kind of like all the exciting games against good competition.

The schedule is the schedule. We had 4 west coast games this year no matter what and we had to travel no matter what. but to say they shafted us is BS. The only thing you can say they shafted us with is they didnt fit our request to have 2 road west coast games back to back, but who cares lol maybe they couldnt work it out with the Raiders and 49ers schedules...
              IT'S ALL A CONSPIRACY.....I get it I just don't like it or agree with it.

              I'm still waiting to hear the last NFL team to open the season away 5 YEARS IN A ROW!!!!

              My friend has a theory that they're trying to make this game a NFL tradition......Giants at Dallas opener.....every year.....forever.....I'm finding it difficult to shoot holes in his theory.

                14 games of the schedule is set in stone for a long time, all the west coast games doesn't bother me, it's the way they chose to say F U to the Giants facing 4 teams after their bye week..

                  I have to find my stats for that. If my memory is correct, which it might not be, teams coming off of Thursday night games and playing on the road have horrible records. That is more a benefit for us than for them. The prevailing theory is that even with those 10 days rest the fact they had 3 days rest between games the week prior really screws them up that they can't recover in time even with the extra rest.

                      I could of sworn it was more then that and remember people complaining about it
                      Football has been very, very good to us.
                      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore

                      5-NE
                      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                        despite this teams roster, we did become road warriors. But its their job. they have to play to win no matter home or away

                            Dallas(week 14) was off a TNF, which came off a well rested TNF game, they played Thanksgiving, then the following week against the Vikings on TNF again, so they got a full weeks rest to play Vikings...

                              I had to look it up because as a season ticket holder it was starting to get to me.....including the upcoming season here is how many consecutive seasons NFL teams have currently opened either at Home or Away:

                              5 Away Openers in a row = The New York Giants (1)
                              4 Away Openers in a row = Panthers (1)
                              3 Away Openers in a row = Steelers (1)
                              2 Away Openers in a row = Bucs, Raiders, Chargers (3)
                              1 Away Openers in a row = Eagles, Jets, Saints, Chiefs, Jags, Colts, Cardinals, Falcons, Ravens (9)

                              7 Home Openers in a row = Broncos (1)
                              6 Home Openers in a row = None (0)
                              5 Home Openers in a row = Cowboys (1)
                              4 Home Openers in a row = Texans (1)
                              3 Home Openers in a row = Skins, Niners (2)
                              2 Home Openers in a row = Titans (1)
                              1 Home Openers in a row = Seahawks, Patriots, Vikings, Dolphins, Rams, Packers, Lions, Browns, Bengals, Bears, Bills (11)

                              Meaningless but hopefully one of these years the Giants can kick off a season at home.....the only way to ensure that is to......

                                I checked that was it. People on these boards tend to complain and blow things out of proportion.
