The Giants will be on the road the following week when they face the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 8 p.m. eastern time, 7 p.m. local time.
This is the first preseason game pitting the Giants and Titans, though the franchises met four times in the preseason from 1971-90 when the Titans played in Houston and were called the Houston Oilers. The Giants won that 1990 meeting in the Astrodome, 13-10. The teams met in the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio in 1985, a 21-20 Giants victory. The Oilers won the first two games in the preseason series.
The Giants play their first home preseason game on Saturday, Aug. 29 at 8 p.m. when they face the Green Bay Packers. It will be the teams' first preseason matchup since Aug. 22, 1997 when the Packers defeated the Giants in Madison, Wis., 22-17.
The New England Patriots provide the opposition for the Giants' preseason finale for the 16th consecutive summer on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. in MetLife Stadium. The Giants lead the preseason series, 19-10. The two teams first met in the preseason in 1971.
