Yes, the 2011 season has ended. But we now know that the 2012 season will launch at MetLife Stadium on Thursday, September 6.
That night, the Super Bowl XLVI champion Giants will host the first real game of the new campaign, hosting the Cowboys, Redskins, Eagles, Saints, Bucs, Packers, Steelers, or Browns.
Rarely if ever does the opening game feature a division rivalry. So chances are it’ll be the Steelers, Saints, or Packers.
We’ll find out at some point before the draft. Either way, it can’t get here soon enough.
