Don't drink and thanksgiving food is overrated. Perfect for me to attend.
I think that's kind of cool actually

Giants and Thanksgiving dinner on the same day sounds like a good week.

I sat through the Thanksgiving night  
larryflower37 : 4/20/2017 8:15 am : link
Game in Denver.
It was cold and the Giants had a total of 38 yds in the first half.
Lost 26-6
What a mess of a game and season.

Yup...really ruined a great Thanksgiving Day...hopefully things will be different this time around.
If you play on Thanksgiving,  
Big Blue '56 : 4/20/2017 8:19 am : link
that should count as your Thursday night obligation, period..We play twice albeit a week of rest for the second one
No, No, No!  
jpennyva : 4/20/2017 8:22 am : link
Living in the DC area, we don't get that many Giants games and I hate to waste one that we're guaranteed to get (playing the Skins) and having it be on primetime. If the Giants were playing another team T'giving night, I'd get to see them play AND still have the two Giants-Skins games. Ugh.
Has the schedule been released yet?

Man that sucks!  
BigBlue in Keys : 4/20/2017 8:35 am : link
Give me the early game at least if we have to play on Thanksgiving.

Guessing our bye will be the week before. If we do play Det the following Thursday that will be 3 straight weeks with no football on Sunday. No sir, I don't like it.
Two Thursdays in a row  
Beer Man : 4/20/2017 8:51 am : link
Who did the Giants piss-off? This team usually sucks in prime time.

GP : 4/20/2017 8:55 am : link
I suppose as a father of a one-year old I should enjoy prime time games now, since the kiddo will be sleeping while the game is on and I can watch it distraction free. Still, kinda bummed. I like my Sunday afternoon games.

Better than 2 TNF scattered through the season. At least the 2nd game will be on a 'normal' schedule.

Hopefully we then get Dallas or Philly on 10 days rest!
Sweet.  
est1986 : 4/20/2017 9:15 am : link
Turkey and Football will be sweet with a Cowboys and Redskins loss and a Giants win.
would be great to have

Dallas/Philly as the 4pm game
I'm assuming

He's the black sheep of the family that doesn't like football.
Why not make this thread a schedule release rumors thread?

And we can update it throughout the day as NYG games are leaked.
I hate Thursday nights, so this is good that it's Thanksgiving and

I'm usually off on Friday. Downside is that after a day of feasting and drinking wine I'll be in a coma by the end of the 1st Quarter

Makes the Thanksgetting festivities that much sweeter and now I have a real reason to watch football that day.

Plus the full week between games will be huge for the Giants, plus the 10 days off.
I hope they have the bye week...

...on the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Lions win. (nap during)

I think a rumor is they'd play at home the very next Thursday vs Detroit, so in essence, they'll get F'ed with no 10 day break.

yeah, but wouldn't they get the 10 days after the Detroit game? That's what i'm referring to.
So much complaining

Unless they're playing every thursday from Thanksgiving on, I'm pretty sure they'll get a 10 day break.

+1

Living in the DC area, we're usually good with getting 10 games shown locally, including the two Redskins games.

The years when the Giants play the Redskins in Prime Time, really limits us to only 8 or 9 games shown locally here in DC.
I am just glad it is not a home game

Yes. Correct.
Like the other DC folks  
AnnapolisMike : 4/20/2017 11:28 am : link
I am disappointed about the primetime Skins game.

But if you are going to have an away game on short rest...I am glad it is a divisional opponent. Prep is easier and the travel is easy to Philly or DC. If they indeed play the following Thursday....that gives them a nice break leading into the final stretch of games. Hopefully it will be Philly or Dallas on 10 days rest. And I hope the bye is in the later part of October following a west coast swing.
DC Area Giants games  
NYG27 : 4/20/2017 11:41 am : link
Giants usually have about 5 Prime Time games shown nationally on ESPN, NBC and NFLN\CBS.

We then have the two Giants\Redskins games and the years where they play the AFC North, we get the Ravens game too.

Outside of that, the weeks the Redskins are on BYE or play on Prime Time, the Giants game has a good shot at being shown live on Sunday afternoons. Usually get 3 or so games that way.

That's usually the normal schedule, although the years where the Giants play the Redskins on Prime Time, really hurt that number, as that usually eliminates two extra opportunities to watch them during that season.

I guess that's only fair, but it would be better if it were possible to ensure that all teams playing on Thursday night had the previous Sunday off. Thursday Nigh Football is one of the best examples of the league's hypocrisy when it comes to player health.

Is that someone would be able to leak the real NFL 2017 Schedule ahead of the prime time BS show they have planned for tonight.

No dribs and drabs...the whole damn thing posted right online for all to see.

Who's with me?

Giants haven't

won on Thanksgiving Day since 1982 vs. the Lions when LT took a pick back 97 yards for a TD. The Giants are due.

Uh, no 3 day break from Sun. is better.

Having the game on Thanksgiving night probably puts a damper on things.
