The 2023 NFL schedule has officially been released, which is a talking point for many analysts, considering the lull during this time of year.
While fans and analysts have debated wins and losses, there is one common topic that is mainly agreed upon.
The New York Giants appeared to get the short end of the stick, as seven of their first 11 games are on the road.
Their schedule is also one of the most difficult in the league, as Connor Hughes has recently pointed out.
“This schedule that the NFL has given them, it is among the more daunting across the entire league,” Hughes said.

The Giants begin their season against the Dallas Cowboys, a home Sunday Night Football matchup.
Then, they travel to the West Coast, taking on the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, before coming home to play the Seattle Seahawks.
Three of those four teams made the playoffs in 2022, and the Cardinals have reloaded their team.
After a brief stint at home, the Giants go back on the road to play the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
Again, these are two teams that made the playoffs last season.
While the Giants found success last year, they will need to put their foot on the gas to start the year, ensuring they can start strong.
As Hughes points out, if the Giants can power through their first few weeks, anything is possible.
