A week-by-week breakdown of Giants' 2017 schedule

It’s how you fit all the pieces together

The Bills will host the the Jets week one, the New York Post's Brian Costello reports.

Prior to last year's schedule release, New York Giants 2016 season was the second-easiest schedule. I'm nearly positive there was a time when division opponents home schedules alternated every season, but that's obviously not the case anymore. He read it off, and it has the 49ers hosting the Giants in Week 10.

The Cowboys will be looking for revenge after the Pack defeated them 34-31 to end their short postseason run on a last minute field goal after allowing Green Bay to go up 21-3 early. Hope it's below freezing come December 10.

In between, they play Detroit and San Diego at home. Dallas lost to NY to open the season previous year, and then ended up going 13-3.

Three of the Giants' first six games are at night, four of their first six are on the road, and three of their final four are at home.

Cowboys fans will be hoping for the team to continue onward with the success from last season and that their two young phenoms on offense don't fall into those hard "sophomore slumps". The Giants are prepared to take off in 2017 and will make sure they're packed appropriately for this trip. The Cowboys are overhauling their defense this year, and it's highly unlikely they will be in sync for the opener, a significant handicap against any Week 1 opponent. In Week 9 and 10 they may have tough back to back games taking on the AFC's Kansas City Chiefs at home and then traveling to Atlanta to meet the Falcons the following week.

LANCE MEDOW: When you look at the 2017 schedule, it's clear the Giants are going to be tallying up airline miles this season. The Cowboys have nine games in the middle months, and six of them are in Arlington.

Jameis Winston, Mike Evans and a risky Tampa Bay team await the Giants in their third road game in four weeks to open the regular season. A tough December might make it too hard to get into the postseason with what will likely be an 8-8 season. They already knew they'd have four road games (Denver, San Francisco, Oakland, Arizona) on the west coast, but it was unclear how those games would lay out. And the fact they want to bring a Lombardi Trophy to Oakland before moving to Las Vegas gives them extra motivation to rip through the league this season.
