The dates won't be set for a few months, but the Giants' 2022 opponents and locations are finalized.

The NFC East will face the NFC North and AFC South next season. Because NFC teams will host the 17th game that was added in 2021, the Giants will have nine home games in 2022.

How the scheduling formula works:

The league's 32 teams are split into two conferences - the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The 16 teams in each conference are split into the East, North, South and West divisions; every division has four teams.

Every team will play 17 regular-season games with one bye week. Teams will alternate seasons where they host nine regular-season games and one preseason game, or eight regular-season games and two preseason games. The AFC had nine regular season home games in the 2021 season.

Here's a breakdown of how each team's opponents are set:

Six games against divisional opponents - two games per team, one at home and one on the road. Four games against teams from a division within its conference - two games at home and two on the road. Four games against teams from a division in the other conference - two games at home and two on the road. Two games against teams from the two remaining divisions in its own conference - one game at home and one on the road. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season. The new 17th game is an additional game against a non-conference opponent from a division that the team is not scheduled to play. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season.
