Giants’ schedule is NFL’s most difficult the rest of the way

At 0-3, that’s not good news

The New York Giants are 0-3. The scariest part of that miserable start is that they haven’t even gotten to the difficult part of their schedule yet. Sunday, beginning with a road game against the New Orleans Saints, that changes. Drastically.

By at least one measure, the remaining 14 games for the Giants comprise the hardest upcoming schedule of any team in the NFL.

Here is that remaining schedule:

Week 4 (Sun., Oct. 3) — at New Orleans Saints (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 5 (Sun., Oct. 10 — at Dallas Cowboys (4:25 p.m., FOX)
Week 6 (Sun., Oct. 17) — vs. Los Angeles Rams (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 7 (Sun., Oct. 24) — vs. Carolina Panthers (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 8 (Mon., Nov. 1) — at Chiefs (8:15 p.m., ESPN)
Week 9 (Sun., Nov. 7) — vs. Las Vegas Raiders (1 p.m., CBS)
Week 10 — Bye
Week 11 (Mon., Nov. 22) — at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8:15 p.m., ESPN)
Week 12 (Mon., Nov. 28) — vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 13 (Sun., Dec. 5) — at Miami Dolphins (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 14 (Sun., Dec. 12) — at Los Angeles Chargers (4:05 p.m., FOX)
Week 15 (Sun., Dec. 19) — vs. Dallas Cowboys (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 16 (Sun., Dec. 26) — @ Eagles (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 17 (Sun., Jan. 2) — @ Chicago Bears (1 p.m., FOX)
Week 18 (Sun., Jan. 9) — vs. Washington Football Team (1 p.m., FOX)

Where are the victories? Considering the way the season has gone thus far, is it unrealistic to think the Giants could be 0-10 heading into a Week 12 game at MetLife Stadium against the Philadelphia Eagles?

Maybe, as Joe Judge says, things will be alright. The way things are unfolding currently, though, any game the Giants win before Week 12 will be considered a significant upset.
