Schedule Notes

*The Giants will play five of their eight home games against 2012 playoff teams – Washington, Green Bay, Minnesota, Seattle and Denver.

*The Redskins are the only 2012 playoff team they will play on the road.
*The Giants will play four teams with new head coaches: Philadelphia (Chip Kelly), Chicago (Marc Trestman), Kansas City (Andy Reid) and San Diego (Mike McCoy).

*The Giants will open against Dallas for the second consecutive season. Last year, they lost to the Cowboys at home, 24-17, in their first game. The Giants last opened back-to-back seasons against the same opponent in 2008 and 2009, when they won home games against the Redskins.

*This is the third year in a row and the sixth time in seven years the Giants will begin the season against an NFC East opponent. They have lost their last two openers, to Washington and Dallas.

*The Giants will open their season in Dallas for the first time since 2007. They lost that game, but won the Super Bowl that season.

*The Giants are 49-34-5 on opening day, 49-34-5 in road openers and 32-22-5 in season-opening road games.

*The Giants are 7-11 in prime time against the Cowboys.

*When the Giants host the Vikings, it will be the team’s second Monday night home game in the Coughlin era (not counting the 2005 game against New Orleans in Giants Stadium in which the Saints were the home team). They had been the visitors in their previous nine Monday night games (including that Saints game), before defeating St. Louis, 28-16, in MetLife Stadium on Sept. 19, 2011.

*The Giants and Eagles will conclude their season series before Halloween for the first time since 2000.
*The Giants will play home games in three consecutive weeks for the first time since 2006, when they defeated Tampa Bay and Houston and lost to Chicago. They played three successive home games in 2011, but had a bye between the second and third games.

*For the second season in a row, the Giants’ home game vs. Green Bay and their game at Washington will be played in prime time.

*The Giants will end their season at home for the third consecutive year, the first time that’s happened since it happened five years in a row from 2000-2004. They defeated division foes Dallas and Philadelphia in their last two season finales.

*The Giants last ended their season against the Redskins in 2010, when they won in Washington. Remarkably, the 2013 season will be the first that ends with a home game vs. the Redskins since 1948.

*The Giants are 18-22-1 on Sunday night (9-11 at home, 9-11-1 on the road), 22-33-1 on Monday (7-8 at home, 15-25-1 on the road) and 13-6-3 on Thursday.

*The Giants’ preseason schedule has been finalized. They will open their four-game schedule at Pittsburgh on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m. The Giants’ will face Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts in their preseason home opener on Sunday, Aug. 18 at 8 p.m., a game that will be televised nationally by FOX.

On Saturday, Aug. 24, the Giants will host the Jets in their annual preseason game. Kickoff in MetLife Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Giants will face the New England Patriots in their preseason finale for the ninth consecutive year. The game will be played in Foxboro on Thursday, Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m.

*The kickoff times for the Giants’ final seven regular season games – including the night games vs. Green Bay and at Washington – will be subject to the NFL’s flexible schedule policy.

The NFL will utilize flexible scheduling in Weeks 11-17.

In the weeks flexible scheduling is in place, the NFL 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 was designed to ensure quality matchups on Sunday night in those weeks and give “surprise” teams a chance to play their way onto primetime.

The seven Giants games that could have their kickoff times changed are vs. Green Bay on Nov. 17 (currently listed as an 8:30 start), vs. Dallas on Nov. 24 (4:25 p.m.), at Washington on Dec. 1 (8:30 p.m.), at San Diego on Dec. 8 (4:25 p.m.), Vs. Seattle on Dec. 15 (1 p.m.), at Detroit on Dec. 22 (4:05 p.m.) and vs. Washington on Dec. 29 (1 p.m.).
