The New York Giants made both roster and staff changes this offseason, hoping that it'll lead to more success in the 2022 NFL season. It's been over a decade since the franchise last won a playoff game and a lot must go right for them this year to return to the postseason.

Fortunately, luck is on the team's side as the Giants have the second-easiest 2022 schedule, according to ESPN's Mike Clay. Still, it won't be an easy time against all of New York's opponents because some of them are legitimate contenders.

Here's a look at the three hardest games on the Giants' schedule in 2022.

New York Giants Schedule 2022

1. @ Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers lead all NFL teams with 39 victories since the 2019 season, proving to be one of the Giants' toughest opponents next season. Green Bay has given New York a tough test recently, defeating the former in each of their last three meetings. On top of that, Aaron Rodgers is an impressive 4-1 against the Giants in his career and had a four-touchdown game the last time he faced them in 2019. With just how dangerous the Packers' offense can be, it'd be a surprise to many if the Giants managed to win this game.

2. @ Dallas Cowboys

Despite the familiarity from being divisional rivals, the Giants haven't figured out a way to solve the Dallas Cowboys in recent years. New York is 5-15 against the Dallas since the beginning of the 2012 season and only has one victory in the last 10 meetings. The Cowboys absolutely dominated the Giants last season, outscoring them by a combined 65-26 in two meetings. The Giants aren't even close to having the same level of offense that the Cowboys possess, making any matchup between the two sides difficult to win.

3. vs. Baltimore Ravens

The Giants were one of the worst teams against the run in 2021, giving up 129.0 rushing yards per game (No. 25). That doesn't bode well for them against a Ravens team that averaged 145.8 yards on the ground (No. 3). There were eight instances last season where the Giants gave up at least 130 rushing yards and three when they surrendered 200-plus. Whether it's quarterback Lamar Jackson or one of the team's many running backs, the Ravens are always dangerous in the backfield and this game could wind up being a long one for the Giants.
