2018 Schedule Rumor Thread

Route 9 : 4/16/2018 9:35 am
We have done this numerous years since I got here on BBI and I figured we should.....do it again! help pass the time on this garbage rainy April day(s) in New Jersey.

Any rumors, news, or guesses should be posted here until it is time for the full schedule to be out. I remember in many threads parts of the schedule would leak and we would try to put the pieces together.

I know everyone is chewing their arms off because of how slowly the time is moving until the draft. Got any guesses for week 1 opponent? It has been forever and many years since the Giants opened at home.

I cannot believe this is year number 6 for me for "See one road game a year". I dont know who I have my eyes on yet but it is looking like a good chance it is Indianapolis. How about you?

Or a schedule release date...release date? I think it was 4/19 or 4/20 last year? I know it will be this week. So dont be shy and join in on the discussions. We have cake.

Didnít they release the schedule the week before the draft last year?  
figgy2989 : 4/16/2018 9:38 am : link
Hoping for an early Texans game this year as that looks like it will be my groups away trip. Ideally, the Astros will be home too and catch a game at Minute Maid.
...  
Route 9 : 4/16/2018 9:42 am : link
I think so. The Thursday Night before the draft if I remember correctly. Texans doesn't sound bad but I did do Dallas a couple of years ago.

I have it narrowed down to Indy, SF, Carolina or Atlanta.
Damn it

If the Titans game is early (Sept/Oct),  
Diver_Down : 4/16/2018 9:45 am : link
then it will be my first game at MetLife. My buddy lives in Nashville and wants to meet up for the game. Because I'm a weather wimp, I told him only if the match-up is early enough in the fall.
Atlanta would be cool with the new stadium  
figgy2989 : 4/16/2018 9:47 am : link
And same scenario if itís early in the year and the Braves are in town check out their new park.

Depending the time of year, you should want no part of Indy in the winter.
I plan on going  
jvm52106 : 4/16/2018 9:48 am : link
to both Atlanta game and the Carolina game.
Atlanta I'd probably get kicked out before the game

I'd really lay it into Matt Ryan

NYG @ PHI

Week 1 Thursday night is something I have heard is one of the possibilities.

Why would they waste Week 1 on that when NYG/PHI is going to be a television draw regardless of when they play and later in the season it could be an even better match once the Giants have adjusted to their new schemes? Minnesota with Kirk Cosuins would be a better option because they can play it up as the former Redskins QB coming into Philly trying to get revenge for the Vikings after last year's playoff loss.
I have zero inside sources  
Sy'56 : 4/16/2018 10:11 am : link
on this stuff...nothing credible anyway. I just heard (typical friend of a fiend) NYG at MIN week 1 was still a discussion.

I have no idea.
...  
Route 9 : 4/16/2018 10:17 am : link
I mean I thought Giants at Philly week 1 was a possibility and people laughed at me on here. Philly barely beat the Giants twice last year and you got the NJ-NY market.

Sadly, no one will really give a shit about Minnesota exacting their revenge against Philly with a QB who played for another team last year. I certainly don't.

Philly I'm not so sure is presentable as a week 1 defending champion nation wide. Who knows? Philly vs Minnesota, just doesn't see that as a something I wanna see on my plate come dinner time in week 1.

With New England, you could always put them against Pittsburgh or something. Seattle I think got Green Bay.

Minnesota just is a joke organization. Or I guess their storyline and pathetic showing in the NFCCG and with all the Kirk Cousins ongoing whereabouts last month just annoyed the hell out of me.
I heard from  
Pete in MD : 4/16/2018 10:27 am : link
someone "connected" that there will be 16 games, 8 home and 8 on the the road, played between September and December, mostly on Sundays.
I can't imagine the NFL  
Mike from Ohio : 4/16/2018 10:35 am : link
would kickoff their season with the Superbowl champions playing a 3-13 team. It is usually another team expected to make a run. Despite what all of us here think about the upcoming year and the possibility for a decent season, the national view will be "Ugh, that came will be over at halftime."
Pats at Jags  
jvm52106 : 4/16/2018 10:51 am : link
would be a nice Sunday night game..
Would love us to get  
QB Snacks : 4/16/2018 10:54 am : link
an under the radar start but dont see it happening.

Something like home washington @ indy the first two weeks would be great.
I'll be at the Carolina and Atlanta..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 4/16/2018 10:56 am : link
games too. Possibly the Jax game as well.

The NFL never announced that. WIP Radio in Philly reported that was what they were hearing, but it has never been confirmed by the league at all.
Giants dont look like they'll be playing in Dallas opening night

Who needs them anyway? They're all fat, broke and miserable.

Everyone thought my one buddy was (who is two years older than me) was legitimately my father. I guess it doesnt help he does look like hes 49.

That was mainly a dig at NJ Cowboy fans who don't have the luxury of seeing the Cowboys at home.
I haven't read through the thread yet...

but my lil brother has a few contacts within the Giants (very light contacts) and out of the blue last night he sent me and my dad (who lives just outside Charlotte) the following text message:

I think the Giants may play in Carolina first game of the season


To which my dad (who is good friends with a number of Panthers players, including real tight with Kawaan Short because they belong to the same fraternity) replied:

Looks like it


I didn't ask them why they thought it (because I really don't much care at this point) but will ask and see if it's just them guessing or not. Normally I wouldn't have even bothered to post this but only did because of this thread. Feel free to take it for what it's worth.

Nice!

Boatie Warrant : 4/16/2018 12:18 pm : link
I have no insider info but Carolina makes a lot of sense to me because of the off season additions. When I first thought about our 2108 opponents Carolina was the first team that came to mind for our opener. I mean, how many years can we play Dallas in week 1?
id expect the schedule to release on thursday  
CGiants07 : 4/16/2018 12:22 pm : link
and we are due to open at home at 1pm so id guess chicago, tb or washington at home
If the NFL sticks to the script  
JonC : 4/16/2018 12:23 pm : link
schedule should begin to leak later this week.
I'll never rule out for Week 1...  
njm : 4/16/2018 12:31 pm : link
Sunday Night at Dallas
It will be out this week, always released ahead of draft  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:32 pm : link
Pre-season was last week.

They will likely confirm some select games today or tomorrow, like NFL opener, MNF opener, and then the balance later on.

I am guessing we DONT open at Philly. Nothing that exciting about that.

More likely to be Vikes, or possibly an AFC team to spread the interest.
Someone should guess  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:33 pm : link
Home: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans


Away: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers
We're due for a non-descript  
JonC : 4/16/2018 12:34 pm : link
home opener.
Based on London Games  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 12:35 pm : link
We know that we don't play Philly, Jax, or Tenn on the weeks they are there.

10/21 or 10/28. Each London Team has a bye following also.

We can almost assume we won't see these teams on 10/21, 10/28 or 11/4.

week 1 9/9 at Washington
week 2 9/16 vs Tampa
week 3 9/23 vs Phily
week 4 9/30 at Atlanta (maybe MNF)

week 14 12/9 at Houston
week 15 12/16 vs New Orleans (TNF)
week 16 12/23 at Philly
week 17 12/30 at Dallas

chose the away game  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 1:22 pm : link
for the opener since jewish holidays start that weekend. normally, giants refrain from home game then.

chose the away MNF and home TNF as the opposite as last year.

Quick update  
T-Bone : 4/16/2018 1:26 pm : link
My dad said he was guessing.

My lil bro said he saw it on line somewhere... so in other words, that was probably a guess too.

Once again, a guess  
upstatenyg : 4/16/2018 1:44 pm : link
but used the jewish holidays as no home game

used the london sked to eliminate games vs jax, phl, and tenn.

used the running approach of alternating home mnf games, and tnf. last year, we played a home mnf game to open, and played away tnf.

We should start with a Florida swing. How about opening with IMG Academy followed by St Thomas Aquinas.
I also..

Two teams coming off of a down year.

It would be nice to have one year where we open at home at 1PM.
