The New York Giants formal Twitter account seemingly predicts the team’s 2020 Week 1 opponent, but is it the suitable guess?
With the 2020 NFL frequent-period agenda launch approaching, lovers of all 32 corporations are getting to be anxious, impatiently ready to see when every workforce will perform who. Supporters of the New York Giants, and any ballclub for that matter, have acknowledged their team’s 2020 opponents because the conclusion of the 2019 frequent period. However, it is nevertheless fascinating to locate out the Week 1 matchups.
For quite a few of the yearly agenda releases in the latest yrs, Giants lovers have had a “could’ve viewed that one particular coming” moment when locating out who Significant Blue performs Week 1. In the past ten years on your own, the Giants faced the Dallas Cowboys 6 different occasions for the frequent-period opener. Four of these matchups have arrive inside of the very last 5 seasons.
And on Wednesday, the Giants formal Twitter account weighed in on the probability of that matchup landing on Week 1 all over again.

If you click on the gif, it shows 4 different versions of the Cowboys symbol, in essence predicting that the Giants will be experiencing off in opposition to their division rivals in early September (at the very least for now).
The question is, would it be a highway match for the Giants?
Judging by the past, my guess is indeed. Of the 6 occasions these two groups faced every other in the past ten years, 5 were being in Arlington, Texas. The only time out of the 6 in which the matchup was at MetLife Stadium was throughout the 2012 period when the Giants were being coming off a Tremendous Bowl 46 victory and performed the classic Thursday evening match throughout Week 1.
And what time would the match be?
Which is also uncertain. Through the 2013, 2015, and 2017 seasons, the two groups performed on Sunday Night time Football throughout the opening weekend. But contemplating the Giants won just 12 video games more than the very last three seasons, the league may be hesitant to area them in that time slot. Last year, Significant Blue attained zero Sunday Night time Football matchups.
As a result, the match would most likely be nationally broadcasted on FOX throughout the four:twenty five p.m. ET slot with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman contacting the match. That would be my guess, so it’ll be fascinating to see if I’m suitable.
Even though, on Wednesday, John Clayton of ESPN essentially instructed 93.seven The Fan in Pittsburgh that the initially 4 weeks of the frequent period will be AFC vs NFC matchups. As a result, is the Giants Twitter account’s prediction essentially incorrect?
New York performs every workforce in the AFC North this year — the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Baltimore Ravens — so retain that in mind prior to the genuine launch.
[email protected] tells @937theFan that the NFL agenda will be NFC vs AFC for the 1st four weeks of the period. Steelers perform the NFC East. So 1st four video games would be Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins, and Giants.
