I created this because since we are the NY market team, our schedule has already gotten leaked. So, again we have a tough schedule in the NFL.

Week 12 - vs. Green Bay Packers
Week 13 - at Washington Redskins
Week 14 - vs. New Orleans Saints

Week 16 - at Baltimore Ravens
Week 17 - vs. Philadelphia Eagles
As expected, this schedule is backloaded with tough games. Four of the final six games are against teams that made the playoffs this past season.
The first few weeks are interesting, as the Giants will have a long layoff after their first and third games.
Full details are coming at 7 p.m.

Judging from the final six games of the schedule posted by @MikeGarafolo, the NFL really, really, REALLY doesn't want the Giants repeating.

In my 8 years of doing the schedule show, I've realized there's another certainty to death and taxes: the Giants schedule getting leaked.
