NFL: Jets, Giants to open new stadium


Associated Press

NEW YORK The New York Jets and New York Giants both will play at home in their new Meadowlands Stadium on the opening weekend of the 2010 season.

The NFL says the Giants will play on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 12, while the Jets will host a Monday night game the next day.
Opponents have not been announced; the full league schedule usually is released in early April.
The Jets will host the first NFL game at the new stadium during the preseason in August.
Only once have the Giants and Jets opened a regular season on the same weekend at Giants Stadium. In 1991, the Jets played Tampa Bay on Sunday, Sept. 1, and the Giants hosted the 49ers on Monday night, Sept. 2.
