Tom Coughlin's first game as Giants coach will take place in Philly against the Eagles on Sept. 12 at Lincoln Financial Field. The season concludes with a match against Bill Parcells and the Cowboys at Giants Stadium on Jan. 2, New York's lone prime-time contest of the year.
Other highlights of the schedule include:
* For the first time since the 2000 season, the Giants will not appear on Monday Night Football.
* The Giants play six games against 2003 playoff teams: two each against Philly and Dallas and games with Green Bay and Baltimore.
* The Giants will host Atlanta for the third consecutive year (Nov. 21) and visit Minnesota for the fourth straight season (Oct. 31).
* New York's home opener is a 1 p.m. tilt against the Redskins on Sept. 19.
* The Giants bye week falls on Oct. 17 between games in Dallas and vs. Detroit.
* Big Blue's toughest stretch looks to be right out of the gate, when the Giants play in Philly, Washington, Cleveland, in Green Bay and in Dallas.
* An easier stretch appears to be following the bye when the Giants host Detroit, visit Minnesota, host the Bears and visit Arizona.
* New York's preseason schedule continues to take shape. The Giants open at home against Kansas City on Friday, Aug 13 (8 p.m.), then travel to Carolina for a nationally televised (ESPN) Thursday evening match with the Panthers on Aug. 19. The date and time of the third preseason game – a 'road' game with the Jets – has yet to be determined. The club will conclude Tom Coughlin's first preseason with a home game against Baltimore on Sept. 2 (7 p.m.).
