The NFL has announced that the two teams that faced off in last year’s regular season finale—the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys—will kick the upcoming 2012 NFL regular season into swing on Wednesday, September 5 at MetLife Stadium on NBC.
This will be the third straight battle between the two teams aired in prime time on NBC and the ninth consecutive year the defending Super Bowl Champions will have hosted the regular season opener. So far the defending champions are 8-0 during this tradition.
It’s also going to be the first time the game has ever been held on a Wednesday, as the season opener was rescheduled a day earlier this year to accommodate President Obama’s speech at the DMC (Democratic National Convention).
Even though this will become a highly-anticipated NFC East matchup, there still could easily be about 50 Tebow references throughout the game since it’s held in New York.

Tom Coughlin usually isn't the one stirring up controversy at MetLife Stadium— he leaves that duty to his counterpart Rex Ryan— but the New York Giants head coach seemed to be taking a jab at his stadium mates the New York Jets when he was asked about all of the attention the Jets were getting for the Tim Tebow trade.
"You know who won the Super Bowl even if we'...

Looking to provide Quarterback Jay Cutler with another target, the Chicago Bears inked former New York Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas to a one-year deal.

“You know who won the Super Bowl even if we’re not on front page,” said Coughlin.”New Yorkers know.”
Coughlin usually doesn’t talk much trash, but when you win your second Super Bowl in four...
Despite winning a Super Bowl Championship, statistically speaking the Giants defied all logic. According to the Cold Hard Football Facts web site, author Kerry Byrne is perplexed yet again by the Giants. Byrne wrote: The 2007 Giants had no business winning a championship, based on the parameters defined for us by NFL history since 1940. The 2007 Giants were, quite literally, the...
