I created this because since we are the NY market team, our schedule has already gotten leaked. So, again we have a tough schedule in the NFL.

Giants 2012 regular-season schedule features tough closing stretch

As expected, this schedule is backloaded with tough games. Four of the final six games are against teams that made the playoffs this past season.

The first few weeks are interesting, as the Giants will have a long layoff after their first and third games.

Full details are coming at 7 p.m.

Judging from the final six games of the schedule posted by @MikeGarafolo, the NFL really, really, REALLY doesn't want the Giants repeating.

In my 8 years of doing the schedule show, I've realized there's another certainty to death and taxes: the Giants schedule getting leaked.

That is the ills of winning the division. Eagles have near the same schedule except we have Detroit and Arizona vs GB and SF. Not like having a tough schedule kept you from winning the super bowl.

No, but it's annoying! NE and GB have the easiest. For once, I'd like an easy schedule. Maybe it may keep years on my life, especially the way we play, where games come down to the final minute. I don't think I could live with the close games like last year.

Broncos Vs. Steelers is the first SNF game, which Hines actually guessed more than a month ago.

Packers at Seahawks for week 3 in Seattle. I honestly didnt think we would get a primetime game outside of the Thursday night game.

The Vikings have a super easy schedule outside our division. We play AFC South, NFC West, Jax, and Tampa. If Ponder progresses and we get some solid starters out of this draft, we could easily be looking at 7 or 8 wins.

Does the NFL want you to watch their schedule show before they just give you the schedule on NFL.com first? Because the huge link on their front page just goes to the 2011 schedule.

Bills no SNF or MNF but hey we get MIA in the cool TNF, lame. 35 SNF and MNF so 70 spots and we get none yet again. So far according to ESPN the fing Bears get 3 MN games.
And guess who gets the Pats* after their bye week yet again? Well of course Buff get that.

Jets get you to open the year and end the year....makes no sense but eh.

Bills are always scary week 1....going to be very, very tough. Especially if Lights Out makes it through the preseason unharmed.

Also the Jets schedule is so slanted towards favoring Tebow over Sanchez its not funny...

Jets get the PIT, SF, HOU D's early and the NFL is expecting Tebow to purge on the JAX, STL, IND D's mid to late in the year. Add the primetime games being so late for this team and you can tell Goodell is begging for Tebow to take the reigns.

The Bengals with 3 prime time games. Most they have ever had in one season.

Colts Season Preview
Luck will take lumps

Andrew Luck makes his NFL debut in Chicago. Nothing like jumping right in. Once a month, Luck squares off against an elite QB. He'll hook up with Aaron Rodgers in October, Tom Brady in November and Matthew Stafford in December. We'll be able to chart his growth easily.


Glad they already made our draft pick for us even if it is a foregone conclusion.

I don't think I could live with the close games like last year.It's not like they're making it up as they go along to **** on the Giants. The schedule's been set for years, the NFC East is just catching the other divisions at the wrong times

Because no one outside of Buffalo gives a crap about the Bills. And I'm not sure why you bring up the Bears getting 3 Monday Night games as if it justifies your whining at all. They have a good team that'll be a contender in the playoff race and they have a very strong fanbase. It's not like they're...well...the Bills.

If you want primetime games your team has to get good. The Lions used to almost never get any, and this year they have five. Winning changes things, but for now, no one wants to watch the Bills.

It's year after year after year! It's annoying after a while. Meanwhile, you look and see GB and NE have the easiest schedules in the league. And yeah, I know they are not doing it to screw us intentionally, however, this stuff happens every year! I am just saying it would be nice to have a weak schedule, towards the bottom once.

Dallas with a 6-wk. stretch of only one freaking home game in October until 11/11! Waaaaay too long on the road.

Is this justice? Or Just Us!?!

Brady has a minimum number of TV appearances written into his contract -- hey, covering his growing bald spot costs big $ !!

Week 11-16: Miami, @Indy, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Seattle, @Miami

That's potentially a big way to end the season. I can't even imagine if we're hosting the Jets in Week 17 with the playoffs on the line. I'd probably kill someone.

Should have been. After the great playoff game we just had with them, and then following the leaked audio, it just makes for a storied game.

I'm looking forward to week 2.

Packers managed to draw 5 primetime game yet just one MNF and thats in Seattle. Interestingly enough, the Packers get two games in 5 days then 11 to rest up for the MNF game in Seattle. Two tough two game stretches highlight the schedule for me. Obviously the opener and thursday game to start the season, both at home vs. SF and CHI. As well as the two game road trip coming off of our bye that forces us to travel to Detroit and NYG. Also pumped about having the Texans on the schedule. Thats going to be tough to go down there in primetime. I think the Packers are looking at a 12 win season.

How do you feel about your defense this season? I guess for more detail I can go in your packers section, but in general, how do you think they will fair this season? Are you worried about that side of the ball?

The Bengals with 3 prime time games. Most they have ever had in one season.

We had 4 in '07, but I'm pretty stoked about 3 after the goose egg we had last year. A little surprised that one of them isn't Palmer's return to cincy though.

Its worrisome for sure. A lot of questions will be answered on draft day. Obviously we need some kind of production opposite of Clay, an effective pass rusher at DE (Jenkins is missed more than people know), and Nick Collins' future has yet to be decided but the early consensus seems to be that its over.

Fortunately for us, our offense doesnt have a major need heading into next season so we can devote this whole draft to the defense and finding a developmental QB to replace Flynn.

Id love for us to trade up and go after guys we want in the same fashion we got Matthews but I trust Thompson's decision making and cant question how this teams being built. Ask me again post draft.
