The New York Giants and Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots are set to square off in the 2019 regular season. Some scheduling info for the opening game of the 2019 NFL season has been released, and it looks like the Patriots will be bumped to Sunday night.
The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will square off on the opening Thursday night of the season (it looks like), a game that is traditionally reserved for the reigning champion.
New England will still get a primetime home game for their season opener so they can hang their banner and show their fans the Lombardi Trophy. Against NYG?
Reports surfaced before Super Bowl that NFL was considering putting Bears-Packers on opening Thursday night to celebrate NFL 100, moving Super Bowl champ to Sunday Night.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) February 11, 2019
Now that Pats have won - and we know how much SNF loves the Giants - have to think NYG-NE in play.
This potential great matchup on the first SNF of the season will certainly get New York and New England fans excited for September.
This would undoubtedly be the perfect way to kickoff season No. 100 for the NFL.
Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until April to find out who the Patriots will face in Week 1, but even the potential of the Pats and Giants facing off for SNF is exciting.
