There are five games remaining on the Giants’ 2024 schedule

Every game is big in the NFL, but some are just more hyped than others.

From traveling abroad for their first regular season game in Germany to taking on a rival on Thanksgiving, the Giants’ 2024 schedule has it all. Here are five intriguing games to circle this season:

Week 1 vs. Vikings

  • Time date: Sunday, September 8 (1:00 PM ET)
  • Place: MetLife Stadium
  • Record vs Opponent: 10-17 (3-1 postseason)
  • Last encounter: January 15, 2023 (W, 31-24 in Wild Card Round)

The New York Giants are starting their milestone 100e season at home against the Minnesota Vikings, their co-located player from the NFC North. It will be the culmination of an important offseason, which will be documented by “Hard Knocks” on Max. The marquee moves traded for two-time Pro Bowl edge rusher Brian Burns and drafted All-American wide receiver Malik Nabers with the sixth overall pick.

“The entire Mara family is proud to commemorate the 100th season of New York Giants football,” said John Mara, president and CEO of the Giants. “As we look back on this important season, I think of my family, especially my father, grandfather and uncle who dedicated their lives to the Giants and the NFL. We wouldn’t be who we are without their vision and leadership. When We became partners with the Tisch family in 1991, our franchise became even stronger. Together, the Mara and Tisch families are proud to celebrate the history of our franchise as we look to the future of Giants football.

“I first saw the Giants play in person in the early 1960s when my father took me to games at Yankee Stadium,” said Steve Tisch, Giants Executive Vice President and Chairman. “Going to Giants games was a wonderful magical ritual. It inspired my lifelong love of the Giants. When my father became an equal partner of the Giants in 1991, it was the realization of a long-time dream. Our family enjoyed our partnership with the Giants Giants and I look forward to many years of success in the future.”

Week 6 vs. Bengals (SNF)

  • Time date: Sunday, October 13 (8:20 PM ET)
  • Place: MetLife Stadium
  • Record vs Opponent: 5-6
  • Last encounter: November 29, 2020 (W, 19-17)

The Giants will face quarterback Joe Burrow for the first time, but it will also be a primetime matchup between two more LSU stars. The highest drafted receiver in Giants history, Nabers finished his LSU career as the school’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards. Meanwhile, Ja’Marr Chase has made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons since the Bengals drafted him fifth overall in 2021. Chase won the Biletnikoff Award in his final collegiate season, as did the Giants’ Jalin Hyatt in 2022.

Week 8 @ Steelers (MNF)

  • Time date: Monday, October 28 (8:15 PM ET)
  • Place: Acrisure Stadium
  • Record vs Opponent: 44-31-3
  • Last encounter: September 14, 2020 (L, 26-16)

The Giants (746) and Steelers (707) have a combined 1,453 wins and 13 NFL championships in their history. The two cornerstone franchises first met on September 20, 1933, when the Steelers were known as the Pittsburgh Pirates. That year, the Giants appeared in the first NFL Championship Game.

Fast forward to 2024, the Giants will face the entire AFC North, which sent three teams to the postseason in 2023. The only team that didn’t make the cut was the Bengals, who finished 9-8 with Burrow missing seven games due to injury. Mike Tomlin has never had a losing season in 17 campaigns as head coach of the Steelers.

Week 10 @ Panthers (Germany)

  • Time date: Sunday, November 10 (9:30 AM ET)
  • Place: Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany
  • Record vs Opponent: 6-6 (0-1 postseason)
  • Last encounter: September 18, 2022 (W, 19-16)

The 2024 International Series will include five NFL games abroad, with the fifth being a matchup between the Giants and Panthers at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. It will be the Giants’ second visit to Europe in three seasons. In 2022, they defeated the Green Bay Packers to improve their record to 3-0 in regular season games in Europe, all in London.

This will be the Giants’ second game in Germany, but their first in the regular season. On August 13, 1994, they defeated the San Diego Chargers in a preseason game in Berlin, 28-20.
