Giants 2022 Schedule: Every Game Prediction, Opponents Overall Wins, Record Prediction

The Giants have undergone many changes this offseason, initiating a new regime under former Bills associates Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen and then scrapping the roster of some expensive contracts. The question is how much better, if at all, will they be in 2022? A year after the Joe Judge era ended with a 4-13 whimmer from New York, what can we expect next season?

Here’s our early prediction for every single game in the Giants’ 18-week regular season schedule:

Line: Titans -6.5 | Opponent wins: O/U 9.5

Malik who? Ryan Tannehill starts the year comfortably with a toss against New York’s understaffed high school, and the Giants, with a lackluster receiving corps, are forced to keep feeding Saquon Barkley despite the presence of Jeffery Simmons at the helm.

Forecast: Giants lose 26-17
Recording: 0-1

Opponent wins: O/U 6.0

Carolina is keeping things closed under center despite lingering question marks, but Kayvon Thibodeaux makes his presence felt in multiple spots for Wink Martindale, giving the Giants the advantage in the trenches in an otherwise sloppy affair.

final score: Giants win 23-21
Recording: 1-1

Opponent wins: O/U 10.5

O-Line troubles notwithstanding, Dallas has no trouble stealing the spotlight on Monday night as Dak Prescott plays as point guard while CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert all log big games to help Adoree ‘Jackson and the Big Blue- edit defense.

Recording: 1-2

Week 4 vs Bears

Opponent wins: O/U 6.5

final score: Giants win 19-16
Recording: 2-2

Opponent wins: O/U 11.0

London’s neutral environment initially suggests an upset is possible as Leonard Williams and Thibodeaux frustrate Aaron Rodgers from goal. But then A-Rod hits his crotch and controls the clock with drop after drop down the track.

Opponent wins: O/U 9.5

Recording: 2-4

Opponent wins: O/U 6.5

Unwisely anticipating a rebound from tough losses to Green Bay and Baltimore, the Giants hit the road and ran head-to-head with a motivated Jags team looking to avenge their own Week 6 loss to Indy. Old rival Doug Pederson gets creative to steal it.

final score: Giants lose 24-21
Recording: 2-5

Opponent wins: O/U 4.5

Recording: 4-5

Week 11 vs Lions

Opponent wins: O/U 6.0

Recording: 5-5

Week 12 at Cowboys

Opponent wins: O/U 10.5

As motivated as they are to avenge their Week 3 loss and split the series, the Giants are no match for Dallas offense in a short week at Jerry World. Prescott overcomes a late fumble to set up a green field goal and end New York’s winning streak.

final score: Giants lose 24-22
Recording: 5-6

Opponent wins: O/U 7.5

Week 14 vs. Eagles

Week 15 at Commanders

Week 17 vs Colts

Week 18 at Eagles
