The NFL announced today that the Giants, in the traditional role of the Super Bowl champions, will host the first game of the season at MetLife Stadium, and they’ll do it against the Cowboys on Wednesday, September 5, on NBC. Note: It’s the third consecutive Cowboys/Giants game to air on NBC prime-time.
