NEW YORK — The New York Giants know who, when and where they’re playing after the NFL released the 2024 schedule for all 32 teams Wednesday. They will open the season at home against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Giants have nine home games and eight road games next season, including a rare home game against the Baltimore Ravens and 2023 MVP Lamar Jackson. They will also play their first ever game in Germany, against the Carolina Panthers.

After going 9-7-1 and advancing to the divisional round of the NFC playoffs in 2022, the Giants took a step back last season, finishing 6-11. They struggled offensively due, in part, to quarterback Daniel Jones missing 11 games due to inury. After the season ended, their best offensive player, running back Saquon Barkley, defected to the rival Philadelphia Eagles in free agency.

Giants 2024 draft recap

The Giants entered the 2024 NFL Draft with six picks. They made a splash right away in the hopes of jump-starting their offense by selecting wide receiver Malik Nabers from LSU with the 6th overall pick.

Nabers, LSU’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards, opted for forgo his senior year to enter the draft. He’ll be a solid weapon for quarterback Daniel Jones, even though the Giants were rumored to want a new quarterback in the first round.

Nabers was profiled as one of the most explosive players in the 2024 draft. He led the SEC with 1,569 receiving yards and could turn into the Giants’ most productive wide receiver since Odell Beckham Jr., another LSU Tiger.

On the draft’s second day, the Giants took safety Tyler Nubin from Minnesota in the second round. Nubin set a program record with 13 interceptions in 55 games for the Golden Gophers.

In the third round, New York selected cornerback Andru Phillips from Kentucky. Phillips, a junior, played in 38 games and started 16 for the Wildcats.

On Day 3, the Giants grabbed Penn State tight end Theo Johnson in the fourth round and Purdue running back Tyrone Tracy Jr. in the fifth round.

In the sixth round, with their final pick of the draft, the Giants selected linebacker Darius Muasau, from UCLA.
