For years, the New York Giants have been routinely met with the most difficult schedules the NFL has to offer. In 2012, many considered their schedule to be one of the most difficult in league history. However, in 2013 that will all change.
Although Big Blue will have marquee matchups with the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings, their overall strength of schedule is actually the easiest in the NFC and one of the easiest in the NFL. On paper, anyway.
The NFL recently released a team-by-team strength of schedule, and the Giants landed safely near the bottom of the league with an opponents overall winning percentage of .480. That ties them with the Dallas Cowboys (also .480) for last in the NFC.
The only teams with schedules easier than the Giants and Cowboys are the Buffalo Bills, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs (all at .473), Oakland Raiders (.469), Indianapolis Colts (.461), San Diego Chargers (.457) and Denver Broncos (.430).
The Carolina Panthers, by the way, have the NFL's toughest schedule (.543).
For a look at the NFC East, the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles land towards the middle of the league at .498 and .496 respectively.
