New York Giants Preseason Details
The New York Giants are one of the proudest franchises in the NFL, and their history in the NFL preseason is one of the many factors that have helped them to get there. Many Giant greats have cut their teeth in the preseason, including multiple time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and running back Saquon Barkley, who tallied a 39-yard carry on his first touch as a Giant in the 2018 preseason.
As far as Giants history is concerned, one of the great rivalries in the history of the team got started in the preseason when the team played the team now known as the New York Jets for the first time in the 1969 preseason. That game was contested in the Yale Bowl, which is still the home stadium for the Bulldogs of the Ivy League.
Today, the Jets and Giants play in an annual rivalry game each year in the preseason, in addition to their regular season clashes that take place once every four years. These modern-day preseason matchups take place at MetLife Stadium, with teams alternating which squad is deemed the home team for the game due to the two teams sharing MetLife Stadium as their traditional home. This game is often a significant battle for bragging rights between fans of the Jets and Giants, who each want to see their team earn the title of the best team to occupy the stadium.
Along with their rivalry game against the Jets, the Giants play an annual preseason game against the New England Patriots. This game typically comes in the final week of the preseason, with the short distance between the two teams making it a strong choice to end the preseason close to home for both sides as the regular season gets set to start. With the history between the Giants and Patriots in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI, there is always some intrigue to be found in this game that signals that the regular season is almost here.
In terms of the experience of attending a New York Giants preseason game, the atmosphere is lively both before and after the game. Tailgating is still an integral part of the preseason experience, as fans are known to get to these games early to cook or toss a football around. And the passionate New York sports fans continue to provide a home field advantage in the preseason as well.
