This is the second year in a row the Giants will play in the season-opening Sunday night game. Last year, the Giants lost at home to the Indianapolis Colts, 26-21, as Eli and Peyton Manning became the first brothers in history to face each other as starting quarterbacks.
The Giants and Cowboys were the NFC’s two wild card playoff teams in 2006. Dallas was 9-7 and lost in the first postseason round at Seattle. The Giants were 8-8 and fell to the Eagles in Philadelphia, 23-20. The two franchises are tied for the most playoff appearances in league history with 28 apiece.
I am very excited about this! The big Sunday night game to open the season, and a game in London!!!
