With the NY Giants grinding at minicamp right now and turning plenty of heads, the excitement for the new campaign to arrive keeps climbing. While everyone has their eyes on the Week 1 showdown going up against the Tennessee Titans, it’s never too early to start thinking about some of the other big-time matchups on the way.

Yes, the NFC East showdowns are always going to be ones to watch, but don’t forget about the others for a second here, as they’re going to provide plenty of entertainment. In this piece, we take a look at three intriguing contests that fans are no question going to want to pay close attention to from the opening kick.

Week 7 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars

We know what you’re thinking… the Jaguars?! Jacksonville was one of the worst teams in the NFL last year and they often had people falling asleep with their style of play. However, keep in mind here that this isn’t the same Jaguars team that was led out onto the field by former head coach Urban Meyer, who has since been fired.

Jacksonville was working around the clock this offseason in signing big names. The list of course includes wide receiver Christian Kirk, who is ready to put up some big numbers now that he’s going to be catching the ball from Trevor Lawrence. On top of that, running back Travis Etienne is close to full health and will be ready to play lights out this year.

He of course missed his rookie season due to injury, which was a bummer to see. Now, though, all systems are a go for the former Clemson running back. And last but not least, Doug Pederson enjoyed his time away from football and now he’s back as the head coach of the Jags. While with the Eagles, he loved taking down the Giants and he’ll be ready to try and do the same once again, this time with a different team. The battle with the Jaguars should be fun to watch.
