The Giants have a relatively easy schedule in 2020 based on combine 2019 winning percentages. The Giants’ 2020 opponents finish the year 123-132-1 with a .482 winning percentage last year. Despite the ease of schedule, the Giants still have to play the 49ers, who reached the Super Bowl last year, a rising Cardinals team, and offensively plush Browns squad, an always tough Steelers team, a Tom Brady lead Buccaneers unit, Dwayne Haskins and the always disappointing Redskins (twice), and Jerry Jones and his band of misfit toys.
That is not to mention Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, number one overall pick Joe Burrow lead Bengals, Jared Goff and the Todd Gurley-less Rams, a tough Seattle Seahawks team, an unpredictable Bears squad, and those pesky Philadelphia Eagles.
Overall, While the NFL might state that this schedule ranked seventh in ease, they will be difficult games with each team improving this off-season significantly. Hopefully, the Giants got just a bit better than the rest of them.
According to Geoff Schwartz, the three things players look for when the schedule is released are Bye Week, Thursday Night Football, Prime Time Games, Cold Weather Games, Rivalries.
