The New York Giants 2019 opponents - *2018 playoff teams.
2019 NFL Schedule: Sept. 5 - Packers-Bears 8:20 p.m. | Sept. 8 Patriots - 8:20 p.m.
Apr 16 Giants are ruining Eli Manning's final NFL days by putting him in this spot. The faces around Manning have changed, and changed hard and fast, but the face of the franchise dutifully remains a smile instead of a frown. As he knows it must. "I think we're heading in the right direction," Manning said. God bless Eli Manning.
The Giants began their voluntary offseason conditioning program, and after a team meeting and the initial workout, Manning spoke publicly for the first time in what has been a momentous offseason. The significant transactions include the arrivals of Golden Tate, Kevin Zeitler and Jabrill Peppers, and the departures of Odell Beckham, Jr., Landon Collins and Olivier Vernon.
receiver Sterling Shepard recently agreed to a four-year, $41 million extension
and is the longest-tenured wideout on the team's roster.
Apr 12 The New York Giants front office has been under great scrutiny of late. Does this team even have any sort of plan? How could they possibly if they are rebuilding with a 38-year-old quarterback that is clearly a declining player?
Apr 10 Of the seven wide receivers who caught a pass for the Giants last season, only Odell Beckham Jr. is not back. The top three tight ends and top three running backs remain unchanged as well.
Apr 9 Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has insisted numerous times that he has a plan to fix the team and that this plan will continue to unfold before our very eyes.
Apr 8 Giants co-owner John Mara would "love to have a quarterback coming out of this draft" if the pick isn't forced. General manager Dave Gettleman "probably" will add a young quarterback in the draft "if everything works out." Will Kyle Lauletta have a place with Giants after NFL Draft? Is he still a viable Eli Manning replacement?
Apr 6 Special
Report - A while ago, someone asked how pro football has changed over the
countless seasons I have been a professional observer. It was an unanswerable
question. There have been too many changes - physically, emotionally, intellectually
- to even arrive at a few.
Apr 5 Eli Manning isn't changing his offseason routine as he heads into his 16th season, calling on running back Saquon Barkley and wide receiver Sterling Shepard to join him for some early April workouts.
Apr 4 It was not a shock, Evan Engram said, to see Odell Beckham Jr. traded away, but it was a bit jarring, and the Giants starting tight end said, "Losing a talent like that, you don't want to." Rather than dwell on what went out the door, Engram will enter a season for the first time without calling Beckham a teammate and is viewing this as a chance to jump-start his NFL ascension.
Apr 3 After an offseason of questionable decisions, the Giants have a chance to end on a high note by landing Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen in a trade. Here's why Rosen is worth what it will cost (second rounder?) in a potential bidding war between now and the 2019 NFL Draft.
Mar 30 Saquon Barkley bothered by Eli Manning flak: 'It's not his fault'. Saquon Barkley isn't here for the continued criticism of Eli Manning.
Mar 28 The Giants don't necessarily have to address their need for Eli Manning's successor via the NFL draft. They are among three teams "very interested" in trading for Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen, at least according to former college quarterback and current Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt.
Mar 27 The Giants are planning to investigate every possible option when it comes to finding their Quarterback of the Future, and that includes a potential trade for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen
Mar 26 John Mara explains why Giants' plan makes perfect sense. "It doesn't matter if Eli is going to be around [after this season] or not," Mara, the team's co-owner, said at the NFL Annual League Meeting.
Former NFL quarterback and New Jersey native Chris Simms has a theory Beckham's presence "exposed" Manning's quarterback weaknesses and that is one of the reasons he was traded by the Giants to the Browns.
Mara admits he has a soft spot in his heart for Eli Manning. Mara, though,
grew hot under the collar when it was insinuated he is keeping the 38-year-old
quarterback around because of sentiment.
Mar 24 One year ago, John Mara stood in a posh resort in Orlando, Fla., and declared, "I'm sick of answering questions about Odell's behavior and what his latest incident is." It was a clear-as-day warning, Giants co-owner to Giants star receiver: Cut it out or you don't get that fat new contract you want.
Mar 23 Kevin Zeitler learned from Browns' Joe Thomas but falls in line with Nate Solder, Will Hernandez. Since winning Super Bowl XLVI, the Giants have swung and missed almost annually at building an offensive line. Zeitler's job is to solidify the right side of the line of scrimmage.
Mar 22 Pat Shurmur loves new Giants, especially his offensive lineman. Shurmur now sees an answer for at least four of the five starting spots on the line. From left to right, the Giants have Nate Solder, Will Hernandez, either Jon Halapio (coming back from ankle surgery) or Spencer Pulley at center and Kevin Zeitler at right guard.
general manager Dave Gettleman continues to insist that he has a plan to make
the Giants into a contender sooner than later. Just don't expect him to share
any details. "Really and truly, very honestly, it's not my responsibility
to tell you guys what I'm doing," Gettleman said Monday during a conference
Mar 18 Having traded away Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns last week, the Giants need to restock their receiver corps. Cody Latimer, will be re-signed. Latimer announced his return Sunday night on Twitter, posting: "Back for seconds!!!. Let's go big blue!!!" Latimer, 26, made an impression early last season before a hamstring strain in Week 6 put him on injured reserve.
Mar 17 Eli Manning gets $5M bonus from Giants and surest sign yet he is 2019 starter. Manning is due a $5 million bonus just for being on the roster on the fifth day of the 2019 NFL calendar (Sunday) under the terms of his contract. The bonus went into effect at 4 p.m. Saturday, according to ESPN. That is the close-of-business for NFL transactions, so Manning will be on the roster when Sunday begins and there is no wire on Sunday so any move wouldn't be official until Monday.
Mar 16 Grading the Giants' offseason moves so far Giants trying to replace Beckham, Collins and Vernon. Just 15 months ago, the Giants hired Dave Gettleman to fix the franchise. He earned praise for a series of early housecleaning moves.Now, suddenly, his new title is "embattled GM".
Mar 15 Giants
sign veteran safety Antoine Bethea. He has won a Super Bowl, played in three
Pro Bowls, and amassed almost 1,500 tackles in 13 NFL seasons.
Mar 14 Former
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham is gone, but certainly his impact
on the franchise won't be forgotten. Beckham, traded Tuesday to the Cleveland
Browns, posted a message Thursday on Instagram to say goodbye to the Giants
Mar 13 The
Giants are sending Beckham to the Browns in exchange for a first-round pick
and a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, plus safety Jabrill Peppers - an
East Orange native.
for Giants: They don't keep Landon Collins, and now he agrees with rival Redskins.
Where Giants general manager Dave Gettleman saw little value in paying big for
Collins, the Redskins wasted no time in making spending lavishly on him and making
Collins a centerpiece for the Giants' NFC East rivals.
Mar 10 Special
Report - So the Giants have unloaded another horrifically expensive commodity,
linebacker Olivier Vernon, and obtained a useable, productive right guard from
the Cleveland Browns, Kevin Zeitler. The trade, which includes a fifth-round draft
pick going to the Giants and a fourth to the Browns, was unofficially announced
Friday, but since the NFL's trading period doesn't start until next Wednesday,
it couldn't be termed official.
Mar 9 Dave Gettleman got off the canvas following the Landon Collins follies and made a good deal unloading Olivier Vernon for Kevin Zeitler, a quality bookend guard for Will Hernandez on an offensive line he vowed to upgrade when he arrived and a godsend for Saquon Barkley, Eli Manning and the quarterback's unidentified successor.
NFL Draft 2019: Where do Giants pick in all 7 rounds? | Enough assets to trade for Cardinals' Josh Rosen? With needs for starters at right tackle, cornerback, free safety, outside linebacker and possibly more, the Giants need to be active when free-agent negotiations begin Monday because they cannot rely on the draft to fill too many holes.
Mar 7 Separating fact from fiction in Landon Collins' departure from Giants What's Dave Gettleman's plan? Is this Eli's fault?
Mar 6 Giants
blew it not trading Landon Collins and buying 2018 playoff delusions | Olivier
Vernon next? Where's the foresight? Why are the Giants in this spot?
Mar 3 Giants scoping out defensive lineman who can make an impact. The top two in this draft, Nick Bosa of Ohio State and Josh Allen of Kentucky, figure to be off the board in the first five picks, even if quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray are taken that high.
Mar 1 The Giants will always try to win. The faces change, but the expectations remain the same. But do not be fooled by thinking that they are a win-now team just because they're riding one more time with 38-year-old Eli Manning. Which brings us to The Case For Trading Odell Beckham Jr.
Feb 28 It's
finding a franchise QB or bust for Dave Gettleman. Gettleman reminded us a
year ago when he passed on Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and Rosen with
the second-overall pick that you better not draft a quarterback unless you have
a conviction on him, because you risk finding yourself in Quarterback Hell if
you swing and miss.
Feb 27 Will Giants be blown away at combine, like they were with Saquon? Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur have no buyers' remorse for taking Barkley when they did.
Feb 25 Five free agents the New York Giants should consider. The NFL calendar is about to move away from its dead period into the annual scouting combine and soon after that, into free agency.
Feb 24 These five teams would likely pursue Landon Collins if Giants let him walk Two division rivals could be on the Pro Bowler's radar. If the Giants do use the franchise tag on Landon Collins, he'll have little realistic choice but to eventually sign it.
The significant front-office, coaching and scouting personal of all 32 NFL teams gather this week in Indianapolis for the Scouting Combine, and it would be appropriate for the teams to form two lines: one for franchises searching for a quarterback, and one for those that are not. The Giants could stand in both lines.
Feb 23 The NFL awarded the Giants a fifth-round pick Friday as part of its compensatory formula. The additional pick gives the Giants 10 selections in next month's draft.
Feb 22 Pat Shurmur will need to find a new defensive backs coach. His now former one, valued assistant coach Lou Anarumo, is leaving to be the Bengals' defensive coordinator.
Report - There are two major subjects..., namely the situation with the quarterback
Eli Manning and the immediate future of safety Landon Collins. Both could go,
or both might stay. Eli may become the victim of the salary cap, since he makes
nearly $17 million a year and the cap can use a little less pressure, especially
from a 38-year-old athlete.
Feb 20 Michael Thomas has already left his stamp on the National Football League both on and off the field. And he's just getting started. An undrafted rookie out of Stanford University in 2012, Thomas got his start in the National Football League with the San Francisco 49ers.
Feb 19 There
are many inadequacies, front to back, within the Giants defense and, if that
defense moves forward without Landon Collins, there will be another gaping hole
Feb 16 Should the Giants pass on a QB again at the top of 1st round? Shaun O'Hara says yes, but not for reason you think. But O'Hara isn't suggesting the Giants pass on Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray for offensive tackle Jonah Williams or another top blocking prospect.
Feb 14 Giants
offensive line during Eli Manning's career: Here is a closer look at the revolving
door of offensive linemen, including all draft picks since Manning arrived in
2004 (which includes only two first-round picks and one Pro Bowler) and the notable
free agents added since the Giants' Old Guard needed replacing, beginning in 2011.
Feb 12 Kareem Martin eager to see defense in Year 2 under Bettcher. Kareem Martin played in James Bettcher's defensive system in Arizona in each of his first three NFL seasons. The Cardinals' defense ranked fifth, second and sixth in yards allowed over those three years from 2015 to 2017.
Feb 11 Here's why NY Giants could open 2019 NFL season against Super Bowl champion Patriots. We already know the Super Bowl LIII champion New England Patriots and the New York Giants will play each other in the regular season, and now here's something to consider: could Big Blue open the 2019 campaign in Foxborough as New England raises the banner to celebrate its sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy?
Feb 9 How can Giants' Saquon Barkley improve after winning Rookie of the Year? Pass protection? Insticts?
Feb 8 When the Giants' chief decision-makers are asked about quarterback Kyler Murray for the first time, they almost surely will be complimentary. But will their words be merely tall tales?
Feb 7 With his New York Giants looking to turn their 5-11 2018 season into a playoff spot in 2019, general manager Dave Gettleman has to avoid making the mistakes he made in his inaugural season on the job.
Feb 6 Eli Manning now has another great Super Bowl Sunday memory to add the bank. Manning and his wife Abby welcomed son Charles "Charlie" Elisha Manning just after midnight on Sunday morning, as first reported by Newsday. He is the couple's fourth child and Charlie will grow up with three older sisters.
Feb 5 Just as it took multiple years of personnel mismanagement to send the New York Giants to the bottom of the NFC East, it's going to take multiple years for the tandem of general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur to fix.
Feb 4 Not long after the confetti stopped falling on the Patriots, Saquon Barkley took to Twitter to post a simple message. "One day ...," he wrote and added the emoji of two hands clasped together in prayer. Do his Giants have a prayer to get to Super Bowl LIV in Miami?
Feb 3 Saquon
Barkley named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. What the Giants speculated
was true before the 2018 NFL Draft and what they believe was validated during
this past season was made official Saturday night: Saquon Barkley was the best.
Feb 2 Over the next several weeks, the Giants are expected to make some decisions regarding some of their biggest cap eaters for 2019. In determining whom to cut and whom to retain, general manager Dave Gettleman is certain to review everything, including injury history and production.
Feb 1 Giants quarterback Eli Manning already has as many Super Bowl rings as his older brother Peyton Manning, but one of his former teammates thinks it might be time for Eli to follow his older brother's path, if he wants to finally get bragging rights.
Jan 31 Saquon Barkley's popularity continues to soar. Another example: the Giants' sensational running back is the Pepsi Rookie of the Year, a source confirmed.
Jan 30 Connor Barwin's first season with the Giants will be his only season with the Giants. He had little impact in 2018, which is why he will be officially released in the coming days.
Jan 27 Eli Manning is not expected to go anywhere. It is believed Gettleman and Shurmur are convinced the 38-year-old can function as a more-than-competent NFL quarterback.
Manning TD passes: Here are all the Giants who have caught at least 1.
Jan 25 The Giants quietly have added 12 players to their roster -- some of whom were on the practice squad during the regular season -- since putting a bow on a disappointing 5-11 season.
Saquon Barkley was in a familiar situation during the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge - at least for one game. He was great, without a lot of help from his teammates.
Jan 22 Eli Manning's agent speaks: I think he'll return to Giants. Where the Giants go at quarterback is the decision of the offseason for a team that finished 5-11 in 2018 and again failed to make the playoffs. Manning started all 16 games and compiled a passer rating of 92.4, completing a career-high 66 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Jan 21 The controversial outcome of the NFC Championship Game sent two Michael Thomases to the Pro Bowl. For Giants safety Michael Thomas, who was selected as a first alternate to the Rams' Cory Littleton in the one roster spot per conference reserved for a special teams standout, it will be the fulfillment of a career-long individual goal.
Jan 18 By the time next season begins, the Giants have to either replace Eli Manning, or know exactly how they're going to do it. They've known this was coming for years, but in each of the last two drafts, they still failed to select a replacement for Manning despite a plethora of franchise quarterbacks taken in each of the last two first rounds.
Jan 16 General manager Dave Gettleman and the Giants still have plenty of work to do, if this team plans on returning to the playoffs for the second time in the past three years in 2019, but last year's rookie class showed plenty of potential. While Gettleman's moves in free agency last offseason were a mixed bag, at best, the Giants significantly increased the talent pool of the roster during NFL Draft weekend last April.
Jan 12 Much like his team, Evan Engram played his best football after the bye week. Engram caught 22 passes for 320 yards and touchdown in the final quarter of the season. In the first three, he had 23 receptions for 257 and two scores. Engram couldn't deny his satisfaction with the way the 5-11 season ended for him individually.
Early in the spring drills, Will Hernandez was installed as the starting left guard. He might well stay in that position for the next decade. Hernandez is a rugged run blocker and sturdy pass protector who has started every game and has improved significantly from early in the season to now.
Jan 11 Special Report - The basic facts are that out of 16 games on their schedule, the Giants had eight games against 2018 Playoff teams. Given such a poor record, one might intuit that New York would have gotten "smoked" in the great majority of these games, but that just wasn't the case, in general: Here is a brief summary of their games against eventual 2018 Playoffs teams, rating each game for how competitive it was.
Before the Giants give up on quarterback Eli Manning, they might want to take another stab at improving his offensive line. At least that's how one of Manning's longtime NFC East rivals, former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, sees it.
The NFL announced that linebacker Olivier Vernon has been named to the NFC Pro Bowl team. He will replace Chicago's Khalil Mack, who is unable to participate due to injury. Vernon will join two Giants teammates - rookie running back Saquon Barkley and kicker Aldrick Rosas - at the game.
Jan 9 Although the Giants did make progress in some areas, there is still a lot more work to be done by general manager Dave Gettleman and the rest of the front office if they are to continue building on the foundation they laid in 2018.
Jan 8 Ever since the Giants 2018 season ended, there have been any number of opinions put forth regarding what went wrong. Let's peel back some more layers on some of the most common theories behind the Giants 2018 struggles to see if those arguments actually hold water.
If Giants general manager Dave Gettleman wants to maneuver his way up or down in the 2019 draft, it looks as if he will have plenty of options to use as bargaining chips at his disposal.
Jan 6 If Eli Manning's Giants run is over, he leaves an unforgettable mark. Nothing lasts forever, and he will be fine no matter how this turns out. But the Giants will never see the likes of him again.
Dave Gettleman can talk all he wants about defense as root of Giants' deficiencies, but it's a false narrative. How can a GM trade talent in the name of a belated rebuild and then blame the unit that suffered from its reduction in talent for his team's losing, while excusing the offense of blame?
conditions may Eli Manning accept in order to return with Giants? Giants may
want Manning back, but on certain terms.
Jan 4 What's next for Eli Manning and the Giants? "We believe in Eli. As we move forward here I think the plans here will reveal themselves," head coach Pat Shurmur said. "He can still play. He can still make the throws. He can still lead the offense."
Gettleman knows how to make 35 minutes fly by. The dominant storyline was
the future of Eli Manning and the quarterback position for the Giants, but unpacking
Gettleman's 35 minutes of wisecracks and namedrops revealed some interesting perspective
on a 5-11 season.
Jan 2 Eli
Manning could become the first Giant to celebrate a Sweet 16. No player in
the franchise's 94-season history of the Giants has worn the uniform for 16 seasons.
If Manning is back as the starting quarterback in 2019, it will be his 16th season
in a career that includes being the No. 1 NFL pick in the draft and winning two
Super Bowl MVPs.
Jan 1 The Eli Manning-Giants marriage sure doesn't look like it's headed for divorce. "Everyone thinks I'm nuts, but I've seen the good in Eli," head coach Pat Shurmur said. "I believe everyone around him has to do their job as well. I believe in Eli. I believe in him."
Landon Collins wouldn't fight Giants' franchise tag. Landon Collins wants to return to the Giants, the team that moved up in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft to take him out of Alabama then made him a fixture in their defensive backfield.Dec 31 Giants lose to the Cowboys 36-35

(5-10) vs Cowboys (9-6) Game Preview
Dec 30 The Cowboys are locked into the No. 4 slot in the NFC postseason tournament and will play a home playoff game during wild-card weekend. Win or lose, it does not matter much to the Cowboys. That does not mean the Giants, at least their longest-tenured player, are looking to give the Cowboys a free pass.
If there is one position at which the Giants can feel good about their depth from top to bottom going into the offseason, it's tight end. Evan Engram shared his thoughts on his own roller-coaster season, the Giants-Cowboys rivalry and what his offseason will be like.
Dec 29 Odell
Beckham Jr.'s season has ended in frustration again, but not without the Giants'
star wide receiver promising to make 2019 his best. Beckham was asked Friday if
he wants Eli Manning to return as quarterback.
Dec 28 Sterling Shepard has been the Giants' No. 1 wide receiver by default for the past few weeks, and it increasingly looks like he will serve in that capacity again if Odell Beckham Jr. misses his fourth straight game to end the season Sunday against Dallas.
Giants' big free agent Nate Solder: Portrayal as answer to all problems was a 'set up' | 'No superhuman people'. Solder is one of two players on the Giants who has played every snap on their side of the ball this season. The other is his parter on the left side of the offensive line, rookie guard Will Hernandez.
Dec 27 Despite the Giants (5-10) being out of postseason contention and the Cowboys (9-6) locked into the fourth seed as the NFC East champions, Pat Shurmur and Jason Garrett are playing to win Sunday's meeting at MetLife Stadium.
This is not the first time around for Eli Manning, but it remains an uncomfortable conversation, one he was forced to engage in at this time last year. That was the first time, Manning acknowledged, he ever felt he might not return to quarterback the Giants.
Eli Manning isn't sure he will be a Giants quarterback in 2019 but he isn't going to act like he won't be. "I don't know," Manning said when asked if he expects to be with the Giants next season. "I didn't know last year either, so we'll figure it out. Whenever you get to Year 15, these things come up."
Dec 26 Is the soon-to-be (Jan. 3) 38-year-old quarterback the main reason this franchise has regressed and will finish with a losing record for the fifth time in the last six years? Has Eli Manning been worse than his offensive line in that span? Has Manning been worse than the Giants defense that takes the field when a lead is there to be protected?
Dec 25 For many Giants fans (you know who you are), the thought of Eli Manning starting in 2019 is as popular as finding coal in your Christmas stocking. What happens with Manning and the Giants' starting quarterback position next season is up for debate - even though it shouldn't be based on the way he has performed this season, which is good enough to stay on for another year.
Giants should think twice before dumping Evan Engram. Just when it appeared the Giants were phasing Engram out of the offense in favor of better blockers, the second-year pro has 17 catches for 239 yards -- with a bulk of the damage coming after the catch -- combined over the last three games.Dec 24 Giants lose to the Colts 28-27

(5-9) vs Colts (8-6) Game Preview
Dec 23 The Giants had trouble getting their defense off the field last week. They were unable to contain Titans running back Derrick Henry and, as a result, the Titans controlled the ball for 35:21 while the Giants had it for only 24:39. Now, they face the Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, and no team in the NFL has been more difficult to get off the field.
Dec 22 Are the Giants a 40-point team without Odell Beckham? Or are they a zero-point team? The Giants ruled out Beckham for a third straight game with a bruised quad, and it is possible he has played for the final time this season, with only the season finale against the Cowboys still looming.
Dec 21 Joe Flacco and Eli Manning have enjoyed very similar careers -- from rising to the big moment to their per game averages -- but their organizations are taking very different approaches to the future. And it's not what you would objectively expect.
There are apparently no boundaries to the Giants' search for a quarterback. Bo Levi Mitchell, a two-time MVP in the Canadian Football League, is headed to the Meadowlands to work out for the Giants, a move first reported by GiantsWire.
The Giants defense failed its last test miserably, when Tennessee's Derrick Henry ran roughshod over them in Sunday's loss. Defensive coordinator James Bettcher had a pretty simple explanation for what happened.
Dec 20 Three Giants players - one each from the offense, defense and special teams - were selected to the NFC Pro Bowl team announced today. Rookie running back Saquon Barkley, safety Landon Collins and kicker Aldrick Rosas were elected in voting by fans, players and coaches.
Will Giants be on HBO's Hard Knocks in 2019? They have Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham and no easy out. The only out is by fitting one of three exceptions. The Giants had had an out in 2016 based on hiring Ben McAdoo, an out in 2017 based on their last playoff appearance and an out in 2018 based on hiring Pat Shurmur and their playoff trip. But they don't fall into any of those three categories this season.
So what would you like to do about seeing that this doesn't happen again next year, and the next year, and the year after that? The sticking point seems to be quarterback Eli Manning, who will be the subject of intense focus starting now. Should he return? Should he be led gently into retirement? Should the Giants entertain queries to trade him (yeah, like that's going to happen).
Dec 18 Why Eli Manning is the best option the Giants have at QB next year. A look at the Giants' QB options show sticking with Manning makes most sense.
Giants won't win again until they find their next Eli Manning. The Giants have made their bed and will continue to sleep in it until they find their young franchise quarterback.
