At this point I think the NFL will stay away from mainly divisional match ups week 1. I am going to go out on a limb and say we get:
H vs Buffalo week 1...
One caveat, if the NFL is aware of a trade between the Giants and the Cardinals for Rosen (but have kept it under wraps for Draft day drama) then I say we end up with Cards week 1.
we can get an early game.
John, when does the sked come out?
as always seems to be the case.
To be released on Thursday evening and will trickle out during that day or even sooner.
Sadly, there is nothing great about the schedule and the team has sucked so not likely any prime time games of interest will be released early.
For those talking about Dallas, at least we know it won't be snf opener as that is kc/ne.
The Giants will have many Primetime games. Mostly early in season

I hope not, UNLESS weíre competing for a playoff spot and they flex us into prime time, albeit, still hate them

Nope. I get the league wants to showcase Barkley but I just hope we arenít playing the role of the sacrificial lamb in the games. Another prime timer in Philadelphia, for example figures to not be pretty.
they won't be released early.
I know the Giants always get 2 or 3 or more primetime games, even when they suck.
These games won't be Thanksgiving, opening weekend, Thursday night opener, etc, which is the ones we will learn about first.
I think we already know about TNF, Thanksgiving, SNF and MNF opener.
open with a non conference 1pm game. Giants have been a bad team, and they traded away their biggest attention grabber on the national stage.
Probably see one of the less interesting matchups week 1.
But I was told 3 of our first 7 games are prime time. That was a few weeks ago and things could change but just as fyi

That means our thursday game will be early. I imagine @ Dallas and home with Philly will be the other.
Giants are getting 4 primeime games early. That way league gets us in prime time but is protected if we're bad. When we're good😀 They will flex us into a fifth prime time game. Side note jets are earlier is what I was told. Halloween or earlier. That's why we play week one of preseason and not week three

also minimizing jets conflicts especially early in the year while allowing nyc to still get feature dh games
every year after the schedule is released & he said the NFL likes showcasing NYG-DAL early every year. 2 very good/traditional brands and helps kick off the year.
