How difficult is Giants schedule in 2014?

In no sport does the power structure fluctuate more from year to year than professional football.




One season a team will be in the cellar. The next it will be hosting a playoff game.

You don't have to look any further than the Giants' division this past year when the Philadelphia Eagles did exactly that. They won four games in 2012 and went on to capture the NFC East title in 2013.

So when you talk about strength of schedule based on the previous year's records, you have to take it with a grain of salt. However, it's still a way to size up the competition as teams plan all offseason to face said opponents. 

And according to the researchers at, the Giants have the sixth-easiest schedule in 2014. Based on their 2013 records, Big Blue's foes (see below) have a winning percentage of .465.

Take a look at the list for all 32 teams:
