The New York Giants concluded their 2019 season on Sunday, which means their 2020 opponents are set.

The team finished third in the NFC East, setting up games against the same-place finishers from the NFC South (Buccaneers) and NFC North (Bears), as dictated by the scheduling formula.

Below is a look the Giants' future matchups. The schedule is typically released near the draft, which this year is held April 23-25 in Las Vegas.

The NFL's scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games).
  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games).
  • Two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings (2 games).

These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.
