April 11, 2006

 

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The previously-announced trip to London to face the Miami Dolphins, a meeting with the Jets and five prime time games highlight the Giants’ 2007 regular season schedule, which was released today.

 

Tom Coughlin’s fourth season as head coach will begin on Sunday night, Sept 9 when the Giants, who last season earned their second playoff berth in as many years, will visit their NFC East rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, in Texas Stadium at 8:15. The game will be televised nationally by NBC.

 

The game in Dallas is the first of five night contests the Giants have scheduled. Three of them are at home. They will host defending NFC East champion Philadelphia on Sept. 30 and another division rival, Washington, on Dec. 16. Both games are scheduled to start at 8:15 and will be televised by NBC, though the kickoff time for the Washington game is subject to change because of the NFL’s flexible scheduling policy.

 

In addition, the Giants will host the New England Patriots on Saturday night, Dec. 29 at 8:15 p.m. The game will be broadcast by the NFL Network. It will be the fourth season in a row the Giants will play their final regular season game in prime time.

 

The Giants will also play two night games on the road: the opener in Dallas and a Monday night game in Atlanta on Oct. 15 that will be televised by ESPN.

 

This is the second year in a row the Giants will play five prime time games. In 2006, they defeated Dallas and Washington and lost to Indianapolis, Chicago and Jacksonville at night.

 

The Giants’ first regular season game against the Jets since 2003 will be played on Sunday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m. It will be a Giants home game.

 

“It’s a very, very challenging schedule,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “Week-in and week-out, we will be challenged by outstanding opponents. We have five prime time games, which our team will look forward to with great anticipation. We play the Jets and we have our game in London, which will be very exciting for our fans.

 

“Certainly, each game is an exceptional challenge. We play each of our division opponents in September, so you have to be ready to come off the blocks. Then you reflect on the end of the season, when we play five outstanding opponents down the stretch. We’re on the road each of the first two weeks in December (at Chicago and Philadelphia). Then we play Washington, Buffalo and New England.”

 

Some highlights from the Giants’ 2007 schedule:

 

*The Giants will play seven games against 2006 playoff teams: two each versus Philadelphia and Dallas and one apiece against Chicago, New England and the Jets. The Eagles, Bears and Patriots won their divisions last season.

 

*The Giants will play back-to-back home games just once (hosting the Eagles and Jets on Sept. 30 and Oct. 7) and back-to-back road games only once (visiting Chicago and Philadelphia on Dec. 2 and 9).

 

*The Giants will play all three of their NFC East rivals in the first four weeks of the season. They will travel to Dallas for the opener and Washington in Week 3, then host Philadelphia in Week 4.

 

*The Giants’ meeting with the Miami Dolphins in London on Oct. 28 will be the first regular season game in NFL history played outside of North America.

 

*The Giants will have their annual regular season bye the week after the London game (Sunday, Nov. 4).

 

*The Giants will visit Atlanta on Oct. 15 for the second year in a row. They won in the Georgia Dome last year, 27-14.

 

*The Giants’ final game in both the preseason and regular season is against New England.

 

*The Green Bay Packers will visit Giants Stadium on Sept. 16. The last time the Packers were scheduled to face the Giants in New Jersey was also on Sept. 16 – in 2001. Because of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, that game was postponed to Jan. 6, 2002.

 

*The Giants will have to pack their thermal underwear this season. Their five December games include two night games and trips to Chicago, Philadelphia and Buffalo.

 

*The Giants will open their preseason schedule at home against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. They will visit the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night, Aug. 19 at 8 p.m. in a game nationally televised by NBC. The Giants will be the home team in their annual preseason game against the Jets on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m. They will play their final preseason contest at New England on Thursday, Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

 

*The kickoff times for six of the Giants’ second-half games will be determined later in the season because of the advent of the NFL’s flexible scheduling policy. Those five games are at Detroit on Nov. 18 (currently listed as a 4:15 p.m. start), vs. Minnesota on Nov. 25 (1 p.m.), at Chicago on Dec. 2 (4:15), at Philadelphia on Dec. 9 (1 p.m.), vs. Washington on Dec. 16 (8:15 p.m.), and at Buffalo on Dec. 23 (1 p.m.).

 

The 8:15 start for the New England game on Dec. 29 is not subject to change.

 

The season again will utilize flexible scheduling in Weeks 11-17.

 

In those weeks, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday night on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game will be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights.

 

A flexible scheduling move will be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the change may be announced six days before the game. Flexible scheduling will ensure quality matchups on Sunday night in those weeks and give “surprise” teams a chance to play their way onto primetime.

It was the 15th time the NFC East rivals split their season series, and the first time since 1974 that the visiting team won both games. The Giants’ 36 points in the first game was their second-highest total in 45 visits to Dallas and the most points they’ve score there since a 41-10 triumph on Nov. 11, 1962.

Jesus....I guess the 1pm game for these Giants is fast becoming rarer and rarer to the point of extinction. :unsure: As long as it is not Monday Night we tend to play up to the level of our NFC East rivals, so those should be competitive games.
