Week 15: at New Orleans

The Giants will travel to New Orleans to face Derek Carr in his inaugural season in Louisiana. This game will mark the first time Carr faces his ex-teammate Waller, as both departed Las Vegas this offseason.

The Saints play in the NFC South, which is by far the worst division in football. The Saints have a very average roster, but will be in the division mix until the end. Early, the Saints are the favorites to win the NFC South.

Carr and Jones are viewed by many to be in the same quarterback tier. Jones has a chance to show to the world that notion is hilarious. This game should have major NFC playoff implications.

Week 16 at Philadelphia on Christmas Day

The third Monday game of the Giants season will take place in Philadelphia on Christmas Day. Here's a crazy stat, the New York Giants were founded in 1925 and this Week 16 showdown in Philly will mark the first time Big Blue has played on Christmas Day, 98 years into their existence.

This will mark the first installement of the Giants-Eagles rivarly in the 2023 season. This is the latest these two have ever played their first game against each other.

The Giants roster took a big step forward in 2023. They have a chance to win the NFC East, but the Eagles roster is significantly deeper. Big Blue will likely need to stun Philly on the day Santa comes if they want any chance to win their first division crown since 2011.
