The Giants have eight home games during the 2021 season. As usual, the Giants will take on each of its NFC East rivals at MetLife Stadium this fall. The Dallas Cowboys will be welcoming quarterback Dak Prescott back to the field following a season-ending injury last season, while the reigning division champion Washington Football Team added veteran journeyman QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to the fold. And then there’s the Philadelphia Eagles, who’s rivalry with Big Blue needs no introduction.
Outside of the NFC East, the Giants will go to battle with the NFC South this upcoming season. The Atlanta Falcons now boast one of the top group of pass-catchers in the league after drafting Kyle Pitts with the No. 4 overall pick, adding the tight end to a group that already included Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. Also coming to MetLife Stadium are the Carolina Panthers, who traded for former Jets quarterback Sam Darnold this offseason. The final home game against an NFC opponent comes against the Los Angeles Rams, who made one of the bigger trades of the offseason when they acquired former league MVP Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions.
Outside of the conference games, the NFC East will take on the AFC West in 2021. The Las Vegas Raiders will be taking the cross-country flight to MetLife Stadium this fall, as Raiders head coach Jon Gruden will coach against the Giants at MetLife Stadium for the first time in 15 years. The Giants’ final home game will come against the Denver Broncos, as Big Blue will try to slow down Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Noah Fant and the rest of Denver’s talented group of offensive weapons.
