The New York Giants face an important 2024 season ahead. The third season of Head Coach Brian Daboll and General Manager Joe Schoen began with losing the team’s number-two pick from 2018, culminating with drafting Malik Nabers sixth overall. The schedules for this 2024 season were unveiled last night, with 272 matchups to be played in the 18 weeks of the season. While predicting the full season record output before any player steps on a field can be a futile task, we can still run through and attempt to predict the outcome based on the results of this offseason.

The 2024 NFL Season may still be months away, but the NFL Schedule for 2024 has been unveiled. The New York Giants will play 17 contests in 2024 in their 100th season as a franchise. Coming off of an offseason in which the team did not make significant moves at the quarterback position, opting to draft wide receiver Malik Nabers instead, 2024 represents a critical season for Big Blue. The team did not technically “release” a video for the 2024 season, but they did offer a parody video. With that said, let’s go over the team’s most critical matchups for 2024.…

This hypothetical Giants schedule now turns to December. After a long season featuring Saquon Barkley’s return to East Rutherford, and returning to Atlanta for the first time in six seasons, the final month of the season will either see Big Blue competing for a Wild Card or finding themselves competing for the services of another top quarterback in the 2025 NFL Draft. In Part Four, we close out piecing together a possible 2024 Giants schedule out ahead of the tentative release date of the schedule on Wednesday, May 15th. Predicting the New York Giants Week 13-18 Week 13: At Seattle…

Patrick Mahomes knows a thing or two about winning Super Bowls. The forefront of the NFL’s newest dynasty has hoisted three Lombardi Trophies and is the current holder of what was once the most expensive contract in sports. But when pressed about what he considers the greatest moment in football history, he singled out Super Bowl 42, the Giants’ slaying of the 18-0 Patriots, as one of those moments. The Giants Won Super Bowl 42 The 2007 New England Patriots are still considered one of the best teams ever assembled. The Patriots steamrolled their way to nearly 37 points per…

In the first two parts of this hypothetical schedule, the early-season schedule for the New York Giants took shape, with contests against division rivals and new-look clubs alike. As the calendar turns to November, the Giants hope to turn their attention to the playoff chase. Predicting the New York Giants Weeks 9-12 Week 9: Minnesota Vikings (TNF) The Brian Daboll era’s defining moment to this point was the 31-24 triumph over Minnesota in the 2022 Wild Card round. In 2024, the teams will meet up once more in East Rutherford under decidedly different circumstances. Kirk Cousins is no longer around,…

In the next part of this hypothetical 2024 New York Giants schedule, Big Blue turns the calendar to October having already taken on two of their divisional opponents for the first time in 2024. With the early-season jitters out of the way, October is the time of year for NFL clubs to begin positioning themselves for the postseason push. Will the Giants take advantage of their October schedule and position themselves for a postseason push in 2024? Week 5: At Atlanta Falcons The Giants have not been to Atlanta in six seasons, which will change in 2024. The Falcons may…

The New York Giants had themselves an interesting adventure this offseason. While the team lost Saquon Barkley to the Philadelphia Eagles, the team still made a bevy of improvements on both sides of the ball. These improvements were capped off by drafting Malik Nabers at the forefront of their 2024 NFL Draft class. And, with the most substantial parts of the 2024 offseason complete, the Giants and the rest of the league turn to the reveal of their schedules. The 272 games that will comprise the 2024-25 NFL Season include the Giants’ division rival Eagles playing in Brazil against the…

Malik Nabers is waking up this morning a member of the New York Giants. Night one of the 2024 NFL Draft was a wild affair, yet the Giants made perhaps one of the least surprising selections of the entire evening. Joe Schoen and the Giants’ Front Office pushed hard for Drake Maye, but the team ultimately stayed at the 6th selection. In doing so, the Giants also defied other expectations of taking National Champion quarterback JJ McCarthy to bring home the team’s first true #1 Wide Reciever since another LSU product was selected 12th by the club in 2014. With…

The 2024 NFL Draft is a little over 24 hours away by this point. The New York Giants are owners of the sixth overall selection, and six picks throughout the entire draft. The draft is the most critical point of a team’s offseason, from the first-round selections to the late-round selections that have sometimes resulted in players such as Tom Brady being selected and turning in legendary careers. The New York Giants have not had the best of luck in the draft process as of late, and these shameful selections are a big part of how the team has slumped…

After much speculation over the past few months, we finally arrived at the week of the 2024 NFL Draft. Representatives from all 32 NFL clubs will soon descend upon Detroit, joined by the future NFL Pros who will hear their names called over the three days of selections, 257 in all. The Chicago Bears will open the proceedings, presumably by selecting USC standout Caleb Williams, while the Jets will end the draft on Saturday evening with the 256th and 257th selections. In these final days, the last-minute shifts that have dominated past drafts will ostensibly happen again, and the situation…
