The New York Giants 2017 opponents have been revealed, and, on paper the 2017 schedule will be tougher than the 2016 version.

In addition to playing the Dallas Cowboys twice, the New York Giants will play four teams that have made the playoffs this season: Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, and Oakland Raiders.

Here’s a breakdown of the Giants home and road opponents:

Home: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins, Rams, Seahawks, Chiefs, Chargers, Lions

Road: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins, Cardinals, 49ers, Broncos, Raiders, Buccaneers

The Giants 2017 opponents have a combined record of 107-98-3, which is a winning percentage of 51.44%.

2017 will also showcase the third matchup between Eli Manning and Philip Rivers, who were traded for one another on draft day in 2004.

Manning is 0-2 against Rivers and 0-3 against the Chargers in his career. The Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts are the only teams Manning has not defeated in his career.

So, 2017 will give Manning a chance to finally defeat the team that drafted him.
