I just finished looking at the New York Giants 2012 NFL schedule and as a New York Giants fan I think we have a good shot at going 10-6 this year.
Here's a game by game look at the New York Giants 2012 NFL schedule:
September 5 vs. Dallas Cowboys: Nothing to worry about here. The Giants swept the Cowboys last year and the Cowboys haven't done much to better their team. Giants win and start the season 1-0.
September 16 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I feel pretty good about this game. Tampa Bay is nothing to sweat. The G-Men will win this one and will go to 2-0.
September 20 at Carolina Panthers: I'm worried about this one. Cam Newton lit it up last year. The Panthers weren't great but they did cause some headaches. The Giants go down here and leave Carolina with a 2-1 record.
September 30 at Philadelphia Eagles: Man, I hate the Eagles. This game concerns me. Big Blue swept the Eagles last year and I doubt the Eagles have forgotten. The Giants lose this one and roll back to New York 2-2.
October 7 vs. Cleveland Browns: This is a gimmie game. Cleveland? Really? I'm not afraid of the Browns at all. They'll be starting a rookie at quarterback and I have a feeling the Giants defense will capitalize on that. Giants win big here and go into week six 3-2.
October 14 at San Francisco 49ers: Yikes. I'm extremely nervous about this one. The 49ers scare me. They're a tough team and they may be headed back to the NFC Championship again this year. Giants lose and fall to 3-3.
October 21 vs. Washington Redskins: Payback time. The Redskins straight swept my G-Men last year. It was luck and nothing else. The 'Skins may have RG III but he's a rookie. I like the Giants defense against a rookie QB any day. Giants win this divisional game and go up 4-3.
October 28 at Dallas Cowboys: Yawn. Easy win here. Eli Manning is undefeated at Cowboy Stadium and after this game he will remain undefeated. Giants win here and push their record to 5-3.
November 4 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: I'm not sure how to call this one. The Steelers are a tough team but their defense looked a little old and slow last year especially in the playoffs. The Giants will win this one and will head into week 10 with a 6-3 mark.
November 11 at Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals are a team that could go 10-6 or 5-11. I'm going to reluctantly take the Bengals on this one. The Giants will head into their bye week with a 6-4 record.
November 25 vs. Green Bay Packers: Call me a New York homer but the Giants will win this game. I know Aaron Rodgers is a stud and the Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL. I know this. But I'm taking the Giants anyway. Giants win and take their 7-4 record on the road.
December 3 at Washington Redskins: Ugh. Them again. I hate the Redskins. I will be hating them more after they beat my Giants in this game. I just have a gut feeling on this one. Giants lose a heart breaker and fall to 7-5.
December 9 vs. New Orleans Saints: I'm taking the Giants here. I think that without head coach Sean Payton the Saints won't be what they were a year ago. You can argue this reason all you want but New York wins this game and pushes their record to 8-5.
December 16 at Atlanta Falcons: Matt Ryan is almost unbeatable at the Georgia Dome. As much as I want a Giants win here I don't think it's going to happen. Falcons win and send the Giants back home with a 8-6 record.
December 23 at Baltimore Ravens: This is another tough game and it could be a must win for the Giants. Since the stakes could be high here I'm going to take my Giants. They have Eli Manning who is synonymous with the word clutch. Giants win and head home with a 9-6 record.
December 30 vs. Philadelphia Eagles: This game could be for a playoff spot. In that case, I'm taking the Giants again. New York sweeps the Eagles and finish the regular season with a 10-6 mark.
Prediction: The New York Giants will finish the 2012 regular season with a record of 10-6. After that we'll just have to see what happens in the playoffs. I smell another Super Bowl. Don't you?
Dylan Davis is an avid New York Giants fan and has seen his Giants win four Super Bowls. He is very optimistic about the 2012 season and is anticipating another Super Bowl title.
