2017 New York Giants And New York Jets Schedule

2017 is flying back, as we are now almost near May and sooner or later, football will be here. I know we hopefully have a nice long summer ahead of us, but the NFL is the headlines right now due to their schedule release. Here’s what we have to look forward to in New York with the Giants and Jets in 2017.

The New York Giants will be in the center of the national football stage from the jump, as the G-Men’s first two games are due to be on national TV. Their first month of games will be against NFC teams, before they play against all west coast teams in October. After the Cowboys game in week one, the week seven matchup against the Seahawks stands out the most for the Giants in the first half.

With four primetime games set as of right now – with more possibly being flexed in towards the end of the season – the Giants will be once again one of the most talked about teams in the league. As of right now, fans are most excited about the Thanksgiving primetime game in Washington against the Cowboys. With the Cowboys of course also playing on Thanksgiving, that means three out of the four NFC East teams will be playing that day. This is too early, but three games I believe that can swing the season for the Giants are: week 11 in Kansas City, week 13 in Oakland, and of course week 17 against the Redskins.

The Jets are quite the polar opposite of their MetLife roommates. The NFL hid the 5-11 Jets the best they could this year, as their only primetime game is against the Bills in their now annual Christmas Color Rush game. To start the season, the Jets will be on the road for the first two games, against the Bills and the AFC contender Raiders. They will then play their home opener against the Dolphins, followed by playing against the  weaker teams in the league last year in the Jaguars and Browns.
With the Patriots penciled in for two games a year, now along with playing the Super Bowl loser Falcons, Chiefs, and Bucs, the Jets didn’t catch any breaks in their 2017 schedule. In what is going to be seen as the first season of the rebuilding process, Jets fans cannot judge this season on wins and losses, as they know they will be disappointed if they do so.
