New York Giants 2017 schedule: Dates, times announced for full season

New York Giants 2017 schedule: Dates, times announced for full season

Just like the Detroit Lions play at home every Thanksgiving beginning at 12:30 p.m., the New York Giants will open the season at Dallas? That is going to be tough to replicate this year, no matter how good their defense plays. That means a lot of travel. The NFC East and AFC West are expected to be two of the toughest divisions, and 10 of the Giants' 16 games come against those opponents.

Elliott and the Cowboys have the Giants again to start their season.

After winning five straight games against the Giants, starting in 2013, the Cowboys have dropped their last three against the Giants, including both the season opener and the Week 14 game previous year.

While no one will know for sure what kind of game this year's matchup will be, it does at least for now shape up as a pivotal NFC battle between a Giants team that earned a Wild Card bid in 2016 and the Cardinals, who missed the playoffs in 2016 after reaching the NFC Championship Game the prior season.

Sun., Sept. 17 at Denver (FOX) 3:25 p.m.

Syracuse University alum Justin Pugh was the feature star of a video put out by the Giants to introduce the 2017 Giants schedule. This one goes better than the first.

The Vikings will open their season by hosting the Saints on Monday Night Football, The Advocate's Nick Underhill reports. Facing the Falcons at home will be the ultimate test for this young Dallas team. Carson Wentz was 6-2 at Lincoln Financial Field as a rookie. Dallas won the NFC East.

This doesn't get much easier. AT&T Stadium is majestic, but it shouldn't be considered an overly hostile environment for the road team.

Ben McAdoo and the Giants seek a return to the postseason and a deeper run than last year's Wild Card exit in the coach's second year on the sidelines. Jameis Winston might have trust problems with his offensive line after this game.

Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 8, Los Angeles Chargers, 1 p.m.

In addition, the Giants have two warm-climate games (Oakland, Arizona) in December, when cold weather can be hard on a tired roster. And they do, rather handily. And he will get it, thanks to Ezekiel Elliott's 128 yards rushing and two scores and a defense that picks off Eli Manning twice. The Giants were the only team faced with back-to-back road games on a short week with primetime kickoffs for an National Football League team in 2016.

Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 22, Seattle, 4:25 p.m.

As a life-long fan of Big Blue, I was infuriated at this time a year ago when the schedule-maker put the Giants in Big D once again.
