Giants, Jets to meet in first game at Meadowlands Stadium

The NFL released the pre-season schedule today, and avoided any conflict between the New York Giants and New York Jets by having them face each other at the new Meadowlands Stadium.

The New Meadowlands Stadium will open in prime time on Monday, August 16 (ESPN, 8:00 PM ET). Why are the Jets the home team? It's simple -- 2010 is their turn to be the 'host' of the annual pre-season game between the two teams.

The Giants other pre-season opponents will be:

  • Home vs. Pittsburgh (date and time to be determined)
  • Baltimore (date and time TBD)
  • New England (probably Sept. 2)
