The New York Giants will open their 2014 schedule in Detroit as they try to rebound from missing the playoffs last season.
The Giants open up on Monday Night Football September 8 against the Lions, and will play one more Monday night game. The team is featured in five prime time games overall.
They don’t play an NFC East team until Game 4 on September 25 when the Giants travel to Washington to play the Redskins. In 2014, the Giants play 5 games against teams that made the playoffs in 2013, according to giants.com.
The toughest stretch for the Giants begins in November, when they play Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas over a 4-week stretch, according to Rant Sports.
