The New York Giants 2022 opponents - *2021 playoff teams.
NFL PLAYOFFS Check out the game recaps and current headlines.
Jan 25 The Giants had little depth at their off-ball linebacker position behind Blake Martinez. Unfortunately for New York, Martinez tore his ACL in the first quarter of week three's loss to Atlanta. The injury put immense pressure on Tae Crowder and Reggie Ragland, who failed to be positive contributors for the 2021 Giants.
Jan 24 Patrick Graham once called being the defensive coordinator of the Giants his "dream job." There is at least a chance that he will get to keep it. The 42-year-old Graham, who will be interviewed for the Giants head coaching vacancy, is interested in staying on as the defensive coordinator under a new head coach, according to someone familiar with his thinking. And many believe the Giants would be open to his return in the right situation.
Jan 19 Giants hire Joe Schoen as general manager. Joe Schoen last week was the first of nine candidates to interview for the Giants' general manager position and this week is the last man standing. The Giants announced that Schoen will head their football operations. He has spent the last five seasons as the Buffalo Bills' assistant general manager.
Jan 18 Whoever Giants ownership decides to hire at GM will be faced with a roster filled with holes, with the New York Giants' offensive line being among the worst in the NFL, a question mark at QB with Daniel Jones regarding both his health and play and a vacant Head Coaching position, it will be interesting to see what the new GM of the NY Giants decides to do. Here are 3 things the New York Giants' new General manager must to do in order to improve next season.
Jan 17 GM Search: Track the latest interviews conducted by the Giants for their next general manager. Candidates will be announced after each interview is completed.
Jan 16 Daniel Jones among Giants players who attended Joe Judge's goodbye gathering. Several of Judge's coaches were also likely in attendance, including his close personal friends, Patrick Graham and Freddie Kitchens. Jerry Schuplinski, Jerome Henderson and Jody Wright were also rumored to be at the gathering.
Jan 15 What's next for Joe Judge? 6 options for the fired Giants coach (keep an eye on the Texans). It seemed pretty clear, even on Wednesday, that Mara didn't think he'd be firing Joe Judge after only two years, especially after how much he'd praised him - both publicly and in interviews with certain outlets - following last year's 6-10 finish. Now, Judge will have to find another job elsewhere, and he should have some options too.
Jan 14 Sometimes it is simple: You hire who you know. The Giants will not be taking the simple route when it comes to finding their next general manager, as none of the nine candidates they are meeting via Zoom in the first round of interviews has any previous connection to the Giants. All In The Family has been canceled. What comes next will tell the tale.
Jan 13 John Mara calls end of 2021 season the lowest moment in lifelong association with franchise. The Giants fired coach Joe Judge after two seasons on Tuesday, and now must fill both the general manager and head coaching positions after four-year GM Dave Gettleman retired earlier this week. What was the worst point of the 2021 season for Mara? Unfortunately for Judge, it changed from one week to the next. "I can't say that there was one specific act that was the last straw, it was just the culmination of things," Mara said.
Jan 12 The Giants fired Joe Judge as their head coach on Tuesday after only two seasons. John Mara specifically pointed to the Giants disastrous end to the season as a reason for parting ways for Judge. "I said before the season started that I wanted to feel good about the direction we were headed when we played our last game of the season," Mara said in a statement. "Unfortunately, I cannot make that statement, which is why we have made this decision."
Jan 11 Dave Gettleman announced his retirement as Senior Vice President and General Manager of the New York Giants. "We would like to thank Dave for his commitment to this franchise," Mara and Tisch said in a joint statement. Dave was integral in building three of our Super Bowl teams, including two championship teams." Gettleman re-joined the Giants in 2018 after spending 2013-16 as general manager of the Carolina Panthers. Gettleman has been a part of seven Super Bowl teams, including three winners - the Denver Broncos in 1997, and the Giants in 2007 and 2011.Jan 10 Giants lose to Washington 22-7

Jan 9 Whether he is fired or is allowed to retire, general manager Dave Gettleman is in his final days with the New York Giants. On Monday, he and the team will part ways. Once that happens, the Giants will be thrust into another general manager search - perhaps the most important in franchise history. Kevin Abrams is a favorite going into any general manager search. He's been with the organization since 1999 and has served as their assistant GM since 2002.
Jan 8 As had been anticipated throughout the week, the season is over for New York Giants rookie Kadarius Toney. The team's first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft will not play in Sunday's season final due to a shoulder injury. Toney played in just 10 games. He had 39 receptions in 57 targets (a 68.4 catch percentage) for 420 yards, an average of 10.8 yards per reception. He did not score a touchdown.
Jan 7 Last year, Patrick Graham turned down an interview request from the Jets and instead signed an extension to remain Judge's defensive coordinator. Graham indicated he might be more willing to listen to interview requests this year.
Jan 6 Two weeks ago, Jake Fromm made his NFL starting debut when the Giants visited the Philadelphia Eagles. But he threw for only 25 yards while completing six of 17 passes and was replaced by Mike Glennon in the third quarter of the Giants' 34-10 defeat. The Giants scored only three points when Fromm ran the offense. Fromm gets another chance to lead the Giants to victory and to demonstrate that he is a better quarterback than his first start would suggest.
Jan 5 Giants' Isaiah Wilson experiment comes to a sudden end. Wilson, a 2020 first-round pick of the Titans, was released Tuesday after testing the patience of coaches behind the scenes ever since he arrived out-of-shape to join the practice squad in late September. Known to fall asleep in meetings, offensive line coach Rob Sale refused to answer a question about Wilson's development. Sale finally say that Wilson's path to the field required him to "be dependable." If it's his final chance in the NFL, Wilson, 22, will go down as an all-time draft bust. The Brooklyn native had more arrests (two) than games played (one) with the Titans, who traded him to the Dolphins in March.
Jan 4 Joe Judge's New York Giants got blown out Sunday in Chicago by a bad Bears team, falling to 4-12 on the season with one game to play. After being asked why fans should have faith in his guidance, the embattled coach spent 11 minutes of his postgame press conference impassionedly defending his tenure. Amid his response, Judge said plenty of former players called him to claim they missed playing for the Giants and soon-to-be free agents hoped to return.Jan 3 Giants lose to the Bears 29-3

(4-11) Bears (5-10)
Report - Giant fans have had to learn, sometimes painfully, that there are
other things to bring satisfaction and happiness to their lives besides victories.
At this point, almost anything. OK, now to the first of the two remaining games
of the season, Sunday in Chicago (1 p.m. ET) against the 5-10 Bears. Since the
Giants are 4-11, and since they own Chicago's first-round draft pick, it would
be in their best interests to win this one.
Dec 31 There's no way to sugarcoat the Giants' offensive struggles under interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens. In five games since firing Jason Garrett, the Giants have averaged 11.8 points per game, topping 10 points only once. Daniel Jones appeared in only one of those games, but that can't fully account for the lack of production from expected playmakers like Kenny Golladay and Saquon Barkley. When asked about Golladay's struggles - the wide receiver saw a season-high eight targets in each of his last three games but caught only a third of them - Kitchens remained committed to his current system.
Dec 30 Saquon Barkley has no interest in revisiting an unpleasant moment from his recent past or revising his plan for his short-term future. The Giants' running back downplayed his return this weekend to the site of his most serious injury and dismissed the notion that he should not play in the team's final two games, including Sunday against the Bears in Chicago.
Dec 29 Jake Fromm wasn't any better in his NFL debut as a starting quarterback than Mike Glennon has been in his three starts for the Giants this season, but one of those two will get the start Sunday. The question is who.
Dec 28 Joe Judge's Hall of Fame prep work can't get him a pass much longer. Judge has presided over a complete free fall this year, after winning five of his final eight games in his rookie season, and a lot of fans want him fired. Only John Mara isn't going to fire him, even if the Giants lose to Chicago and Washington and finish 4-13.Dec 27 Giants lose to Philadelphia 34-10

Dec 26 The New York Giants and coach Joe Judge reportedly came through for the franchise support staff during the Christmas season in a way that may bring a tear to the NFL fan's eye. Judge handed out bonuses to the support staff on Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News. The second-year coach, his staff and players pitched in for a total of $300,000 to about 70 staff members.
Dec 25 It turns out Jake Fromm will be more than just an insurance policy. The Giants are planning to give Fromm his first career start Sunday against the Eagles, multiple sources told The Post. That scenario was not in the cards when the Giants signed the second-year quarterback off the Bills' practice squad on Nov. 30, but since then Daniel Jones' neck injury did not heal as fast as initially anticipated, ending his season, and veteran backup Mike Glennon played poorly in three fill-in starts.
Dec 24 Why Jake Fromm, of all people, might be the Giants QB that finally unlocks Kenny Golladay. Fromm did something with Golladay that Mike Glennon and Daniel Jones had failed to do all season: He targeted Golladay twice down the field, including a 10-yard completion at the sideline in coverage and a 50/50 jump ball that turned into a 36-yard gain - Golladay's first catch of the season of 30 yards or more.
Dec 23 Daniel Jones expects to play quarterback again for the Giants. Speaking to the media for the first time since he was ruled out for the season with a sprained neck, Jones revealed he doesn't think his NFL career is in jeopardy due the injury. And, on a business note, Jones' private conversations with head coach Joe Judge have reinforced that he remains the Giants' quarterback of the future entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Dec 22 There are several veteran players who could be playing for their future in the coming weeks against the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, and Washington Football Team. Next season, the Giants' roster is going to look dramatically different, especially given the constraints of limited cap space, but several players might need a strong finish this season to ensure they'll be on the roster next season. Here's a look at three NY Giants players playing for their jobs over the final three weeks: WR Darius Slayton, CB James Bradberry, WR John Ross.
Dec 21 Daniel Jones will not return to the field in 2021 as he was placed on injured reserve on Monday. The former first-round pick has been missed the Giants' last three games while dealing with his neck injury. The Giants also placed receiver Sterling Shepard on injured reserve a day after Shepard tore his Achilles during New York's 21-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
