After five long years, my New York Football Giants are finally back in the postseason. Much like their last two Super Bowl runs, they have to play at Lambeau Field and take on the Green Bay Packers, led by quarterback and MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers.
The G-Men landed one of the Wild Card spots as they went 11-5 this year, including two wins against their rivals and division champs the Dallas Cowboys. The strength in New York comes from their defense, as they’ve been one of the best in the NFL this year, and will look to carry the Giants throughout the playoffs.
If the Giants want to make some noise in the playoffs, they’re going to have to do it all on the road, because the only chance they have of a home game is if they meet the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game, which I don’t see happening. Take a look below at the Giants’ playoff schedule for their Wild Card matchup this weekend, as well as for potential Divisional and Conference Championship games.
Wild Card Round
The New York Giants will travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers Sunday, January 8 at 4:40 P.M. EST. The game will be played on FOX.
If the Giants beat Green Bay this Sunday, their next game will most likely be against the Cowboys in Dallas January 15, at 4:40 P.M. EST, with the game being played on FOX. If the Detroit Lions beat the Seattle Seahawks this Saturday (which I don’t see happening), New York will then travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons Saturday, January 14, at 4:35 P.M. EST. That game will also be shown on FOX.
NFC Championship Game
If/when (wishful thinking on my end) the Giants make it to the NFC Championship game, the game will be played Sunday, January 22 at 3:05 P.M. EST on FOX.
Super Bowl 51
Sticking to hypotheticals, if the Giants make it all the way to the Super Bowl (for hopefully a third time against the Patriots), that game will be February 5 in Houston, Texas at 6:30 P.M. on FOX.
