Week 17: December 29, 2013: New York Giants vs Washington Redskins, 1:00 p.m.

For the second year in a row, the Giants are opening the regular season with the Dallas Cowboys, but it will be on the road this time. Since Cowboys Stadium opened in September of 2009, the Giants are 4-0 against their NFC East rivals in that building, (the Giants won 33-31 in Week 2 of 2009, won 41-35 in Week 7 of 2010, won 37-34 in Week 14 of 2011 and won 29-24 in Week 8 of 2012.)

The "Manning Bowl" will take place in Week 2 with the Giants and Broncos, as it will be the third time Eli Manning will face his brother, Peyton Manning. In previous games, Peyton is 2-0 against his younger brother, but that was when he was a member of the Indianapolis Colts (the Colts won 26-21 in Week 1 of 2006 which was at Giants Stadium and won 38-14 in Week 2 of 2010 which was at Lucas Oil Stadium.)

In primetime games, the Giants will play three games on Sunday Night Football, one game on Monday Night Football and one game on Thursday Night Football.

Starting in Week 11, the NFL's flex scheduling will be in effect, so any of the Giants non-primetime games can be moved to the Sunday night slot on NBC.

    I’d be very disappointed if we get less than 11 wins this season.

  2.  fanfor55years says:

    With that schedule fewer than 11 wins would hardly be surprising. It isn’t as brutal as last year, but there are very few sure things.

  3.  KingAndrewXXIII says:

    I will hold my assessment of how many wins I think this team will have until around training camp, after the draft has played out for us and our opponents for this season. Having said that, I think to expect anything more than the 9-10 win per season average before any of the draft, etc. is setting yourself up for a huge let down. Nothing is guaranteed in the NFL…and I still am not buying into all the talk out of guys like Tuck, Webster, Diehl, etc. quite yet.

  4.  GeezUp says:

    It’s crazy that we are so obsessed with football, the NFL schedule release is a 3 hour program!!! With that said, I find it very interesting that we play both Philly games before the bye and both Washington games after the bye. I’m really not a fan of this scheduling but it is what it is. While I won’t get into a specific number of wins, I do feel the NFC East is ours to lose. RG3 is coming off his second serious knee injury, the Eagles have a new coach and the Cowboys still have Romo with a new deal(no incentive to do anything he doesn’t in the past aka lose big games!) I’m really hoping Eli comes out and says we’re gonna win the Superbowl and he’s gonna have his best season ever!

  5.  Chad Eldred says:

    I will say the same thing I said last year. No team should have to open with a division game. Period.

    Hayden went from a 2nd round pick to a top 10 prospect in the last 2 weeks. I’m not buying it–he’ll be drafted towards the end of the 1st round. If someone takes him over Millner, they ought to have their f’n head examined!

    It’s not that simple. He was injured so his pro a month ago was the first time he worked out. Then he also got medical clearance. So maybe we as fans are just getting some of this info in the past week or two but GMs knew this info since his pro day. Tank has his workout on Sat so expect him to rise this last week in a similar way.

  7.  GOAT56 says:

    I don’t carry the general perception on let’s say a team like Philly so I don’t see this schedule as easy. We can do well because we are talented but there’s no such thing as easy in my view.

    •  GeezUp says:

      Agreed. I don’t see how the talking heads can waste so much time on easy/tough schedules when the teams with the first 2 picks in last year’s draft both made the playoffs and the Superbowl Champs didn’t.

      •  demo3356 says:

        Washington actually traded up to the 2nd pick but I see you working.. It is a crap shoot but you can still get a basic idea.. I personally thin the chiefs will be a ten win team this year but catching them early is a break for the Giants.. I think they will be clicking under Reids system by late in the year, but his teams historically start slow and catch fire in November / December

    •  demo3356 says:

      It may not be easy per say but it is much less daunting than the last 2 years.. Drawing the AFC west always helps..

  8.  demo3356 says:

    I’m so pissed..I’m flying up on the 24th of October for a week and was hoping to catch a game but as luck would have it the NYG is n the road that week..

  9.  dlev says:

    No excuses this year. Giants should win at least 5 games in the 2nd half

  10.  Dan Peterson says:

    Perfect bye week timing, too. We’ve been lucky there recently.
