With the NFL draft now being concluded, it is now time to turn to see how the schedule for the Giants plays out this year. As of now, they're tied for the sixth hardest schedule with the Buffalo Bills. It seems like every week will be a test for the G-Men. Teams like the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, and Houston Texans all have much tougher schedules compared to New York. We will not know what their schedule will look like between May 9th and May 16th, as team schedules are usually released by then

The season opener will kick off on Sept. 5 where we will see it kicked off by reigning AFC champs Kansas City Chiefs. The season will conclude with Super Bowl 59, which will occur on February 9th, 2025, taking place in New Orleans.

Though there are other interesting games to watch this year, one of them is the first-ever game to take place in Brazil. This matchup will feature the Philadelphia Eagles and the Green Bay Packers, both teams coming off playoff losses in the previous season

Giants Keys To Success Despite Schedule Strength

If the Giants are going to have a successful season, health is going to be a factor to how they play this season. They have been known as a team that's been dealing with lots of injuries to key players who are important to winning crucial games. New York cannot afford to have injuries derail them in must-win matchups. Staying healthy for the most part of the season could be a positive sign of what's to come for them as the season progresses.

Another key to their success is executing the right game plan. They'll need to strategize effectively to outplay opponents and take advantage of opportunities when presented. Each week will present a new challenge against intimidating teams that are also poised to have a really good season. Against contenders such as the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers, New York will need a well organized plan on both sides of the ball. These matchups will determine whether or not New York will be making the playoffs this season.
