The first COVID-19 impacted shoe has dropped when it comes to the 2020 NFL schedule. There will be no international games.

There were four games set to be held in either the UK or Mexico City this season. The Jacksonville Jaguars were to host two, and the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons were to host the others.

The New York Giants are not scheduled to play any of those teams in 2020, so their schedule will not be affected by this decision.

The NFL is expected to release it’s complete 17-week schedule this week.

With so many unknowns involving the virus — including when or if fans will be allowed to attend games — there are likely to be contingency plans for a delayed or shortened season.

We already know which teams the Giants will play in 2020. In trying to keep things as normal as possible, we looked earlier Monday at storylines to look forward to in the upcoming seaon.
