Giants schedule 2020: Dates & times for all 16 games, strength of schedule, final record prediction

first_imgWith a new coaching staff led by Joe Judge and a handful of roster changes, the Giants are among the most interesting NFL teams in 2020. Naturally, the Giants’ 2020 schedule is just as unpredictable given the boom-or-bust nature of some of their opponents.New York hasn’t collected an NFC East title since 2011, when the team went on to win Super Bowl 46. The Giants’ 2020 schedule is such that they won’t be predicted to win the division this year, either, but if Judge can get some of the new pieces to click, don’t be surprised if New York emerges as a playoff contender this season. Biggest breaks : On the flip side of those Seahawks and Ravens matchups, at least the Giants draw the 49ers and Steelers at home. They also will host Tom Brady’s Buccaneers and potentially dangerous offenses from the Cardinals and Browns.Bottom line : Because the Giants are a retooling team themselves, predicting their 2020 outcome against several other retooling teams is difficult. But, at least on paper, Judge has a strong enough roster to make noise. New York just might need a little help in a crowded NFC field.Record prediction : 7-9 The Giants’ divisional opponents will give them the same tough challenges they always do, but New York’s schedule for 2020 also features games against three playoff teams outside of the division, plus a handful of non-playoff teams that are expected to improve in 2020.Here is a complete breakdown of the New York Giants’ 2020 schedule, including dates and start times for all 16 games and our early prediction.NFL OFFSEASON 2020:Draft grades | Power rankings | Best free agents availableNew York Giants schedule 2020Here is the New York Giants’ complete schedule for 2020:WeekDateOpponentKickoff timeTV1Sept. 14Steelers7:15 p.m.ESPN2Sept. 20@Bears1 p.m.-3Sept. 2749ers1 p.m.-4Oct. 4@Rams4:05 p.m.-5Oct. 11@Cowboys4:25 p.m.-6Oct. 18Redskins1 p.m.-7Oct. 22@Eagles8:20 p.m.NFL Network8Nov. 2Buccaneers8:15 p.m.ESPN9Nov. 8@Redskins1 p.m.-10Nov. 15Eagles1 p.m.-11-BYE–12Nov. 29@Bengals1 p.m.-13Dec. 6@Seahawks4:05 p.m.-14Dec. 13Cardinals1 p.m.-15Dec. 20Browns1 p.m.-16Dec. 27@Ravens1 p.m.-17Jan. 3Cowboys1 p.m.-(For Canadian viewers, each game can be streamed on DAZN.)Giants strength of schedule & predictionBased on opponents’ records from last season, the Giants have a relatively easy schedule. Their 2020 opponents combined to go 123-132-1 (.486) last season, slotting New York at No. 26 in NFL strength of schedule rankings.Of course, that doesn’t account for offseason changes made league-wide in free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. Several of the Giants’ opponents are expected to improve upon their 2019 records. For the Buccaneers, Bengals, Steelers and Browns, to name a few, a simple improvement in quarterback play might do the trick.MORE: Strength of schedule for all 32 teams in 2020Toughest tests : A road game in Seattle will always be among a team’s toughest tests, so the Giants are unfortunate to draw that game as part of the NFC East’s matchup against the NFC West in 2020. Likewise, New York has to go to Baltimore to face reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson. The long road trip to Los Angeles will be tricky, too.last_img read more
