A Look at the Giants 2012 Schedule

I know I’m a week late on this, but here’s a look at the newly released 2012 schedule for the returning Super Bowl champion New York Giant, as well as some interesting statistics to keep in mind.

  1.  The Giants play five prime time games (including 3 of their first 4 contests).
  2. The Giants face all three NFC teams they beat in the playoffs last year (Atlanta, Green Bay, San Francisco).
  3. They begin and end the season at home against NFC east rivals (Week 1 vs. Dallas and Week 17 vs Philly respectively).
  4. The Giants face three 2011 Playoff teams both in November (Pittsburg, Cincinnati and Green Bay) and in December (New Orleans, Atlanta and Baltimore).
  5. The 2012 season will be the second in a row where they begin their season against the same team they played in the previous regular season finale.
  6. The Giants are 17-11 all time in season-opening home games (5-1 on season-opening Wednesday nights as is the case this year).
  7. Pre-Season Schedule has been finalized.
    Fri. 8/10 @ Jacksonville (7:30 PM)
    Sat. 8/18 @ NY Jets (7:00 PM)
    Fri. 8/24 vs. Chicago (8:00 PM)
    Wed. 8/29 vs. New England (7:30 PM)
  8. The Giants are subject to the NFL’s flexible scheduling in Weeks 11-17.

15 weeks to go!
