Giants Leak 2014 Schedule Hours Before Announcement

The Giants could always blame WFAN's Mike Francesa for this, but Big Blue's schedule was leaked hours before the 8:00 p.m. ET league wide announcement.

Inspite of a hideous 7-9 season in 2013, the Giants will have five games in primetime, including a stunning Monday Night Football season opener in Detroit. The Giants will also face the Redskins on Thursday Night Football, (yes, the game will be on CBS, which usually broadcasts AFC contests). Two Sunday night games against the Eagles and Cowboys, and a Monday night game in November against the Colts.

The Giants are barely home in December with only one home game scheduled for the final month of the season.

Sept. 8 @ Detroit ................. 7:00 ESPN
Sept. 14 ARIZONA ............ 1:00 FOX
Sept. 21 HOUSTON ............ 1:00 CBS
Sept. 25 @ Washington........ 8:30 CBS
Oct. 5 ATLANTA ............... 1:00 FOX
Oct. 12@ Philadelphia ........ 8:30 NBC
Oct. 19 @ Dallas ................ 4:25 FOX
Bye Week
Nov. 3 INDIANAPOLIS...... 8:30 NBC

Nov. 17 SAN FRANCISCO 4:25 FOX
Nov. 23 DALLAS ............... 8:30 NBC

Dec. 14 WASHINGTON .... 1:00 FOX
Dec. 21 @ St. Louis ........... 1:00 FOX

The Jets schedule will be out soon. The NFL now has the right to take games from Week 5-10 and flex them, however only two games in that timeframe can get flexed to Sunday night. The regular flex schedule still goes into effect in week 11. NBC will now broadcast a Divisional playoff game this season, in addition to the Wild Card game and Super Bowl XLIX. CBS, partnered with the NFL Network and will take over the Thursday Night Football package for the first half of the year, giving CBS a chance to host exclusive NFC games for the first time since 1993.
