New York Giants: Analyzing 2015 Opponents


We may not know the exactly schedule of the New York Giants for next season but we do know who the Giants will face in 2015. The Giants play a lighter schedule, giving hope for the year to come. Take a look at the teams they will be playing against next year:

Giants 2015 Home Opponents:

Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers

Giants 2015 Away Opponents:

Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings

The Giants, as well as the rest of the NFC East, play the AFC East and the NFC South. The NFC South was the weakest division in football this past season; the Panthers made it to the postseason as a 7-8-1 team. The AFC East is not very intimidating besides the reigning Super Bowl Champion Patriots.

While no game in the NFL is an easy battle, the Giants could surely have drawn a tougher schedule. The toughest game on the schedule is the Patriots game, luckily that will be at home. Nobody knows what to expect from the 49ers, who replaced head coach Jim Harbaugh with Jim Tomsula.

Essentially it boils down to the Giants winning games within their division. The NFC East was all dealt the same hand with exception to their two “wild card” opponents. The Giants got swept by the Eagles and the Cowboys in 2014.

The Giants had 2 close battles with the Cowboys losing 21-31 and 31-28. The Eagles dominated the Giants in their first meeting winning 27-0. The Eagles finished the season with a 34-26 win over the Giants. The Giants swept the Redskins, who finished last in the division.

If the Giants can win against the teams they should beat, and they handle their business in the NFC East, it could be a much brighter season in 2015.
