The 2018 NFL schedule will be officially released at 8 p.m. on Thursday night, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill and rampant speculation regarding which teams will face off when.

The most immediate question fans (and the media) want answered is “Who will the New York Giants face in week one?”

The Giants have opened their season against the Dallas Cowboys in five of the last six seasons. Four of those games have been prime time games, and four of them have been on the road in Dallas.

The last time they played a team that wasn’t the Cowboys was the 2014 season opener against the Detroit Lions, and the last time they opened the season at home was the 2012 opener at Met Life Stadium, when they played the Cowboys after winning the Super Bowl.

Home opponents

Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans

Road opponents

Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers
