When you are the defending Super Bowl Champions, you enter the following season with a huge bullseye on your back.
And when you play in the biggest media market in New York, teams usually gear up to play their best against you.
The New York Giants have both of those tasks ahead of them entering the 2012 season.
The Giants had one of the most improbable seasons in 2011, starting out 6-2, dropping to 7-7, but finishing at 9-7 and winning the NFC East to enter the playoffs.
And pretty soon, it'll be time to put on the helmets and pads and get back to playing some football.
What are the biggest tests that the Giants will face in 2012?
I see five of them.
