Giants 2015 Schedule: Big Primetime Games To Watch


The Giants 2015 schedule has been released and now everyone will look up and down and say which games are they going to win and which will they lose. People will also key in on their favorite matchups. Let’s take a look at the biggest and most exciting match ups on the schedule.

We start off with Week 1. It is literally a prime time matchup that should be another classic NFC East rivalry. The Giants square up against their rival Dallas Cowboys on Sunday September 13th. The Giants will play the division champs in Dallas. It is the first Sunday Night Football matchup of the season.

The Cowboys will be without DeMarco Murray and many people will be looking to see how they fair. Of course anytime Eli Manning and Tony Romo square off plenty points will be scored. Fans love the classic high scoring showdowns. It will also be great to see Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham, two of the best NFL wide receivers put on an aerial show.

Both teams will be in the playoff hunt and this matchup can send someone in the right direction. Everyone will get to see the new additions for both teams and of course, Giant fans will see the triumphant return of Victor Cruz.

In Week 4, the Giants play the Buffalo Bills. This game is an underrated game in my opinion. Last year, the Bills had one of the leagues best defenses and they were a nine win team. Of course Kyle Orton is now retired and we are not sure who the Bills will start at quarterback.

The Bills however did trade for Eagles running back LeSean McCoy. The Bills also added head coach Rex Ryan who will be sure to talk and get plenty of people excited for this matchup. I think this can be a game between one of the high powered offenses against a dominant defense. I also believe both of these teams will be competitive this season.

The Giants will take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday October 19th. It is another road primetime game against a division rival. It is one of two Monday Night Football games for the Giants. All of the football world will be watching and it could be a statement game for both teams.

The Giants will look for revenge against the Eagles team that swept them last season. The  Eagles will look very different this year. They do not have McCoy, Nick Foles orJeremy Maclin anymore. The Eagles traded for Sam Bradford, re-signed Mark Sanchez and signed Tim Tebow. Despite having three quarterbacks with experience, we don’t know what to expect until after the draft as we still hear Marcus Mariota whispers.

On November 15th the Giants will take on the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Of course there is a lot of recent history between these teams. In 2007, the Giants would play the undefeated Pats before losing in Week 16. Later that season, they would play again but this time it would be the Giants winning the big game and ruining the Pats undefeated season with one of the greatest sports upsets ever.

In 2011, the Giants defeated the Pats in the regular season and then again in the Super Bowl. Of course this will be a great game. Tom Brady will be playing with a chip on his shoulder knowing he has two super bowl losses to the same team. Of course both teams have a ton of big name and big time players so this should be a solid battle. Anytime you get to see two future Hall of Fame quarterbacks square off you are lucky to witness it. Shane Vereen will face his old team too as this game will be in New York.

December 6th will be the battle for New York as the Giants and Jets will square off at MetLife Stadium. The Giants have always played the role of big brother here in New York. The last two times the Giants played the Jets they won the game and eventually the Super Bowl.

The Giants may have the face of New York sports in Manning but the Jets brought back their team face and leader in Darrelle Revis. Of course it will be interesting to see how Manning fairs against the Jets revamped defensive secondary. Probably the best angle of this game is to see the matchup between Revis and Beckham.

Big Blue will look for a repeat of their last win against the Jets on Christmas Eve. Cruz had an amazing 99 yard touchdown which is something most people will remember. The Jets will try to prove that the city isn’t just about the Giants.

Some other games to look out for which should be on your calendars are the following:

Sunday 10/11 Giants vs 49ers, 8:30 PM ET

Sunday 11/1 Giants vs Saints, 1:00 PM ET

Monday 12/14 Giants vs Dolphins, 8:30 PM ET

Overall, I can’t wait for the season to arrive as I’ll be glued to the television once these primetime games are live and ready to get underway!
