First impressions, the second half of the season (after the bye as it would happen) looks like another strong series of tests for the Giants. Drawing the Patriots, Dolphins, Jets and Bills is not going to be a cake walk. Throw in the Packers, Saints, and 49ers and with your typical NFC East opponents this is going to be one tough finish for the Giants.

I love the Cowboys finale. Last year I made it to the Giants @ Redskins finale and although the Giants didn’t make the playoffs, they won the game and it’s always fun to have a division game that might mean something toward the end of the year. I have friends down Jerry Land too this year that invited me to the stadium — I might just have to book that trip and start a finale tradition.

Week 16’s Giants @ Jets matchup in New Meadowlands Stadium is sure to be one to watch as well. More on that top 12 game to watch here.
