New York Giants Schedule
The New York Giants are ready to dwarf the competition when they hit the field this season
to take down all of the best teams in the National Football League. The Giants got off to a rough start to last season, losing
their first six games and looking little like the veteran squad that has regularly been to the postseason in recent years.
The Giants didn't give up, though, and played much better after their slow start. The team was unable to make the postseason,
but fans are hoping that the team can return to the playoffs in 2014. The Giants have a number of tough matchups at home this
season, and contests against their divisional opponents are sure to be some of the most heated games in 2014.
always look forward to hosting the Dallas Cowboys, one of their biggest divisional rivals, and they will do just that on November
23rd. The Cowboys also missed the postseason in 2013, but this is certainly a team stocked with enough talent to change that
this time around. Offensively the Cowboys have plenty of weapons, and quarterback Tony Romo has become one of the more underrated
signal callers in the National Football League. Romo has an elite receiver in Dez Bryant, who is physically capable of dominating
any defensive back matched up with him. The Giants will have to slow down the Dallas passing attack if they're going to secure
a victory against the Cowboys this season.
Another big game awaits the Giants when the 2013 NFC East Division champion
Philadelphia Eagles visit in the final week of the regular season (December 28th). The Eagles thrived with a new head coach
in Chip Kelly last season, and also found their starting quarterback in Nick Foles. Kelly and Foles appear to be a great combination,
so it will be up to the New York pass rush and defensive backfield to lock up a talented Philadelphia attack. This is just
one of many great home matchups to face the G-Men this season.
New York Giants Team Info
The New York
Giants had a very respectable season in 2012, going 9-7 and competing for the NFC East title, though the team missed the postseason
due to the overall quality of the NFC teams. The Giants started slowly in 2013, though, losing their first six contests. The
season was not lost, though, as the veteran squad refused to quit and made their 2013 campaign competitive. The Giants come
into 2014 looking to rebound form a tough year. Two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning had his worst season as
a pro last year, forcing the ball down the field in an effort to make up for the struggles of his teammates. Manning should
be able to bounce back in 2014, though the Giants will need to consistently move the ball on the ground to open up things
in the passing game. The New York defense is also looking to improve, and a good defense is a huge weapon to have when a team
takes the field at their home stadium.
Seeing an NFL game in person is unparalleled in
sports, as the National Football League is the most popular sports league in the United States for a reason. Every contest
involving the New York Giants is sure to be packed to the brim with big hits, highlight reel catches and pinpoint passes that
leave all those in attendance simply in awe of these players' physical abilities.
When you hit up the parking lots at
MetLife Stadium, you'll see why going to the game isn't just a three-hour experience inside the stadium but a full day of
barbecuing and fan fun. Tailgating is a way of life for NFL fans, and you can be a part of the action before the game by getting
into a touch football contest before kickoff. Once you enter the stadium, though, is when the real game begins and your job
is to cheer for your favorite team as loudly as possible, because that could make all the difference in the game.
York Giants History
The New York Giants originally joined the National Football League in 1925, and are the only remaining
organization of the five that entered the NFL that year. Early into the franchise's history, the team was officially known
as "The New York Football Giants" in an effort to distinguish the organization from the New York Giants baseball team that
eventually moved to San Francisco. The Giants won the NFL Championship four times before the NFL merged with the AFL and changed
the landscape of American football forever. The Giants have won the Super Bowl multiple times in the recent era as well, including
two wins against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
New York Giants Trivia
The day of the 2004 NFL
Draft, the New York Giants put together a big package to acquire franchise quarterback and first overall pick Eli Manning.
Who did the Giants select with the fourth overall pick in that draft before trading that player in the deal for Manning?
answer is North Carolina State quarterback Philip Rivers, who was traded to the San Diego Chargers, the team that originally
drafted Manning with the top pick. It turned out that both put together stellar careers so far and are always a threat to
take their team to the top of the league, making it a win-win for both cities.
