How to watch Giants-Lions Week 1 preseason game

Don’t miss your first chance this season to see the Giants in a game

The New York Giants open their preseason Friday at 7 p.m. ET when they face the Detroit Lions at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.

The Giants and Lions held joint practices on Tuesday and Wednesday in preparation for Friday’s game.

Giants head coach Brian Daboll has not revealed whether he intends to play quarterback Daniel Jones or other front-line starters like Saquon Barkley, Andrew Thomas, Darren Waller, Dexter Lawrence, Leonard Williams, Bobby Okereke, or Adoree’ Jackson.

The game will, though, almost certainly be a showcase for the Giants’ draft picks, undrafted free agents and veterans who are competing for a spot on the 53-man roster.

“It’s a good opportunity for a lot of young guys,” Daboll said on Wednesday.
