Giants draw third-place sked for 2014

No matter what happens this Sunday vs the Redskins, the Giants will finish third in the NFC East. That means they will draw a third-place schedule for the 2014 season.

This year the Giants played a second-place schedule, drawing Seattle and Carolina in their at-large games. They were shut out in both.

The scheduled games so far for 2014 are the yearly home-and-home series vs their NFC East division rivals (Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington), plus games against the NFC West and AFC South. The Giants will play Arizona, San Francisco, Houston and Indianapolis at home and St. Louis, Seattle, Jacksonville and Tennessee away.

The two at-large games in the NFC are still to be determined. Depending on what happens this weekend, the NFC South game will be against either Tampa Bay or Atlanta. The NFC North game could be vs Chicago, Green Bay or Detroit.

Would be just the Giants luck if their "3rd place schedule" next season gets them Atl and GB 2 would be Super Bowl contending teams with bad injury breaks this past season
