With week 17 in the books, the Giants scheduled opposition/location for 2014 is now set. Their ten foes outside of the NFC East include: the NFC West (entire division), the AFC South (entire) and a straggler each from the NFC South and NFC North.
Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons.
Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions.
Upon initial glance, this looks like a potentially rough slate of games for a 7-9 team. The Cardinals were a 10-win non-playoff team; the Texans tanked but are a QB short of competing; the Lions boast game altering talent on both sides; the Rams are a dangerous home team with a pass rush; the Jaguars are building a new culture with Gus Bradley. Due to roster changeover, however, team assessments at this stage serve little function. Let’s just say the Giants caught some up-and-comers.
