Giants To Open With Cowboys Again, Play 3 Prime-Time Games

By WFAN Sports Radio 101.9 FM/66AM New York

The NFL schedule makers are once again sending the Giants to Dallas for their season opener.

The league released its 2019 schedules Wednesday night. Big Blue will face the Cowboys in Week 1 for the fifth time in the last seven years. It's the fourth time in five seasons, the Giants are opening the season at AT&T Stadium.

The schedule includes three prime-time games: Thursday, Oct. 10 at New England; Monday, Nov. 4 vs. Dallas; and Monday, Dec. 9 at Philadelphia. The Patriots game, of course, pits quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady -- who met twice in classic Super Bowls both won by the Giants -- against each other again.

One of the other highlights on this year's schedule is the Week 10 matchup against the Jets, who will play the role of the home team at MetLife Stadium.

Here's a look at the complete slate:

• Sept. 8 at Dallas, 4:25 p.m.

• Sept. 15 vs. Buffalo, 1 p.m.
