Cowboys and Giants to Open 2012 NFL Season on Sept. 5
The NFL has released who will open the season on Wednesday, September 5th against the Giants at Met Life Stadium. The Dallas Cowboys will meet the defending Super Bowl champions opponents in the first game of the season.
The NFL moved the opener to Thursday in 2002, but this year’s game must be played on Wednesday because of President Obama’s planned speech at the Democratic National Convention.
This marks the NFL’s first Wednesday game since the Rams met the Lions in 1948.
The Giants swept the Cowboys in 2011 en route to their second Super Bowl title in four years. New York has one five of the last six against Dallas.
