When a team wins the Super Bowl, a team is faced with the difficult task of trying to repeat as champions and for the Giants–it certainly won’t be easy. Eli Manning and company already have to play in one of the toughest divisions in football with the NFC East, but their rotating schedule has them facing the AFC North in 2012–which sent three teams to the playoffs last year.
Along with those teams, the Giants also have to face four other teams from the NFC that went to the playoffs last season (49ers, Packers, Saints, and Falcons)–so New York clearly has the toughest schedule in the NFL heading into 2012.
