The New York Giants 2012 schedule will be released on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on NFL Network and NFL.com (via NFL Network Twitter).
The defending Super Bowl Champions already know the opponents they will face in 2012 but not when they will play each of the teams with one exception: the season kickoff in MetLife Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 5, at 8:30 p.m. (NBC).
Here's the Giants' home opponents: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers
Here's the Giants' away opponents: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers
Even with bye weeks for the Giants and their opponents falling favorably, New York could be in for a very rough schedule this season. Among the Giants' opponents is the NFC West champs (49ers), NFC North champs (Packers), NFC South champs (Saints) and AFC North champs (Ravens).
